One of my significant moments was when I was preparing to lay my father to rest in the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona. He was an enlisted WWII Destroyer Sailor (USS Crosby, APD-17) and went back in after graduating from the University of Illinois as a Lt JG. As we prepared for the internment my step mother handed me a small urn. I already had the large one with his remains so I asked "what's this"? She said it was the ashes of his beloved Black Lab Molly and that it was his wish to have her with him. I saluted.
