Mr. Willie am glad you are doing fine don't feel bad about not renewing your membership, my dad was a member of this veterns on organization paid his dues for 25 years and they did not even send him flowers. He was murdered April 14, 2005. My dad was a World War II veteran and not one veteran even showed up. So don't lose your sleep over this organization. Glad you are better.

Dear Concerned:

I'm sorry for your loss and for the circumstances following. I'm really not sure of why your father was not recognized. Even though he was paying his dues, he may not have been an active member of the post and nobody may have been notified of his passing. They may also have been contacted too late for arrangements to be made to attend the funeral. Being he was in WWII, were there anyone there from any of the other local veterans groups such as the Cleveland VFW? Again, I'm sorry your father did not receive the respect he was owed.
