  • You truly are an earth angel. My precious father was put into The Soldiers and Sailors Orphanage in Knights town, Indiana when he was just a little boy. Only 8 years old. His father, my Grandfather was a fireman and had passed away. My Grandmother put the 5 boys there and raised the 2 girls. Dad was there from 8 years old until he joined the Army at 18. 10 years! 10 long years with no mom, no dad. I hope you know what you truly did for these beautiful lucky children. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart. My dad turned out to be the best dad 3 girls and a boy could ever ask for! He was kind, hard working and totally valued his family. He would say his heart ached for a family and God saw to it that he got a very loving family. I miss him so much. God Bless and enjoy your wonderful blessings!💞💞💞

  • He's such a great person. When people tell me "ACAB" I tell them they need to reexamine their own biases. Don't ever let anyone convince you that a single person represents a whole group. It's a logical fallacy and it's often made by people who don't know enough to understand that.
