James Alexander Inglis, Sr.
In honor of the father of my children
who bravely served in Vietnam,
receiving the Purple Heart
after being wounded in battle.
Jim returned home safely from war,
but passed at the young age of thirty-six
of lung cancer brought on by the
effects of Agent Orange.
Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice for your country
and for giving me two beautiful children.
As the daughter of a WWII and Korean War veteran,
sister to a Vietnam veteran,
granddaughter to a WWI veteran,
great-granddaughter to all my
ancestor grandfathers who have
fought for our freedom
since they came to this country in 1607,
and aunt to a niece and nephew who
are currently serving
I want to thank all those who have
and all those who continue
to serve our country.
On this Memorial Day,
the day we have set aside to
honor those who made
the ultimate sacrifice
by giving their lives,
to each of them
and to their families.
I want to give a special thanks
for providing freedom and safety in our lives.
Rest In Peace
