    would have been welcome at my home anytime. We could have sparred over the relative merits of "Jarheads" vs. "Squids", and agreed on most everything else. Sad your mom-in-law wouldn't honor his last wishes. Only as we age can we appreciate how much our time in the armed services molded us into what we are today. RIP, Pop, and Anchors Aweigh!

      We did have a very fine Navy honor guard at the funeral. Still, the whole affair and expense was not what Pop would have wanted. Although a New Englander for much of his life, once he moved to Florida, he HATED the cold. So burying him in the frozen tundra of New Hampshire seems like the final insult.  Hopefully wherever he is now, temperature is not an issue.
