A Social Network for Navy Veterans of the United States of America
I've never met another person in my entire life that has had as much integrity as my father. In his life, he was wronged by many people that he helped out - and never held a grudge. He never lied. He never cheated. He never tried to short anyone for his own gain.
My father found a relationship with God after he lost everything - and has gone to Church every Sunday for over 25 years since to pay back the prayers that were answered. He served his country with pride and retired from the US Navy.
He's one of those quiet champions that constantly helps other people - and never brags or shares it with anyone. He's quick with a joke and would open his door to anyone. People meet him and feel like they've known him for years. He's a good man, and a person that I aspire to measure up to.
"Chief" Karr helped me start NavyVets.com and has been the man who has added the reunion data that you all see on the home page. NavyVets.com wouldn't be here without his help. He loved the Navy and loved the idea of preserving his (and your) history.
Honesty, integrity, caring. Through it all, he and my Mom fought and succeeded in life and now he's challenged with illness that could rob his kids, grandkids and future great grandkids from spending more time with the greatest man I know.
He'll hate that I wrote this - but I love him and would appreciate if you kept him and my Mom in your prayers.
