We always look forward to the parade, but this year was extra special. Poppi was riding in it. Mr. Ned DeLoach asked him to ride in what I thought was the best in the parade~ Veterans of WWII. The 3 gentlemen were all over 90.
When I think of ALL my Poppi went through, it literally makes me tear up. I love listening to him share stories, but he doesn’t very often. I am so thankful he was able to put aside the nightmares and live a normal life. The Lord broke the mold on this man. (I have to say I had 2 of the FINEST men EVER to call grandfather.)
Don’t know of a single person who is prouder of that red, white and blue than Parker William Thompson! I never see a flag that I don't think about him.
3 of his biggest fans!
What a fun way to spend our Saturday morning!
