It began with my Grandfather, Con Mims, Jr. He was killed in action December 17, 1944 during "The Battle of The Bulge." He was a true American hero, (more medals than I can recount here.) More importantly to me, than the medals were the true rewards he left behind-
The love of his life-my Grandmother "Momo." She had a 2 yr old Con, III and was pregnant with my mom.
Due to the fact, that I never got to thank him, and I am not sure if anyone did, I feel a very strong call to thank who I can, in his honor and memory.
God Bless Them all.
For those who have offered the ultimate sacrifice- may they rest in peace-
I am so thankful to you, God, for the ultimate sacrifice You made on Good Friday- because what occured three days later on Easter- ensures, that I will meet and be with my grandfather. I will hug his neck and say a long overdue Thank you.
Grace and Peace,
