So Proud

By sweetpea62
This is my Dad Ernie he was 99 years old. We managed to get him up to London to the Cenotaph he could not walk he had been so ill. He wanted to go so another marine marched him in his wheel chair. He was interviewed and on television hash tag Ernie if you want to see him he was amazing. We managed the next year to get him there and he was back on television. He has passed away now but I really miss the memories we shared and the joy of seeing him so proud...Lin
