Dedication to Tracy (Black) Enders
For the most part, we all love
our dads. Even more so after they are gone. We cherish certain memories
and struggle to hold onto those memories through the fog of time.
Unfortunately, most of us have few mementos which serve to refresh
those memories or to tell us things about our dads that we would
otherwise not know. Tracy, you have the great fortune to have preserved
thousands of your dad’s words and thoughts. These are available to you
any time you want to think of him or learn new things about who he was.
To a certain extent, I envy you.
In the work that you do with
veterans, you bring great honor to Charlie’s memory. Your pride in
expressing dedication to those who serve is one of his legacies. Even
more important, in joining me in raising our kids to understand what
patriotism, service and loyalty are about, we will do our part to show
appreciation for the sacrifices made by others on behalf of us, our
kids and subsequent generations.
This site is dedicated to you
and your memories of Charlie. I hope that it provides a source of
information and fatherly guidance to you. However, I hope that in
sharing it with the world, others will gain the same knowledge and
inspiration and, in so doing, honor him even further.
