Awww. Such a poignant story. I also live in California, and I pictured the National Cemetery in Riverside, where my dad is. Except it was not raining that February afternoon, but it was cold and overcast. Your descriptions were right on.
Oh this touched my heart very deeply...well done, well said, and powerful close.
Thank you,
Thanks for sharing this memory. And thanks to your father for his service.
Oohh, this is good. Emotional. I particularly loved the reference to being offended if the sun had chosen to shine that day. Quite beautiful and poignant.

~God bless.
This is Beautiful. You paint such a poignant picture. Congratulations on your EC. Happy Dance!
Powerful story filled with emotion. I hope we never forget the sacrifice any soldier gives for his or her country.
Congratulations on winning the quarterly award on this emotionally charged story!
This was great to read!
Robin, this was beautiful and heart-wrenching. It reminded me of my father's funeral. He was a WW2 veteran.
