Thank you. They buried him in his Class A's and I put a Lyskawa VFW Post drink chip in his jacket pocket. I was able to buy him one last drink. He was supposed to be my installing Office at my installation last year but he was unable to attend. We had a lot of good times and drank a lot of beer together. He was a two time past Post Commander and a one time District Commander. I put the cross on his Post Commander's picture at the Post to signify that he is deceased.
