[QUOTE=CA SGT;1058585936]FYI to all....
Cass was laid to rest this morning. Very small group of friends and family (10-15) people attended.
A short "obituary" was read that had been written by Cass himself.

I was proud to meet several people who had also known him.[/QUOTE]

Thank you for being there.

RIP sir. I never got the chance to ask you if you were in this picture. Picture of WWII Frogs.

Thank you for attending. I had planned to go but work had other plans. I'm glad you were able to make it.

I tried to keep my distance, but did get to speak to his LCDR and trustee for a bit after the service. Brought the kids because it's important for them to learn to respect and honor our heroes. CA SGT, if that was you in the cowboy hat, nice ride. I was in the blue shirt and black tie.

I stopped by again after he was buried and left some flowers at his temporary marker.

For those that couldn't be there, I've attached a couple of pictures for you.

Rest in Peace, Cass.

Affirmative on the hat. I remember you. Wish we could have spoke....

It's likely I'll have a chance to take another trip there in a couple of months, after the permanent marker is placed. Will contact you and perhaps we could meet up and see it together.

When you do plan a return, I'd meet you and later hoist a pint for the man somewhere local. I had the good fortune to meet Mr G on a couple of occasions and had an enormous amount of respect for the man.
I was sitting offshore on a workboat on the day of the memorial or I would have most certainly attended.

Cass,

We are all better men for having been exposed to your humor, wit and insights here.

Rest in Peace, Sir.

RIP, Sir!

RIP Cass. I 've been out of the loop for a while. Sad news. What an amazing man and historical figure in my mind. The things he saw and did, I can only imagine.

X18BSOCAL 21 August 2016 21:16

A great man has passed.

Rest in peace Cass.

Thanks for allowing this landlubber to read your words.

RIP, Sir.
