What an absolutely wonderful video. I am so glad I stopped by to watch it and thank you so much for posting it! I never knew anything about this story before and I think it's incredible!

Thanks, Lisa. I'll be posting a little about Sonora's family history tomorrow.

Thanks! I look forward to reading it. I posted this video to Facebook this morning...wish my Dad was still around to honor in person but a blog in his honor this Sunday is the best I can do these days! :-)

A blog post about your father would be a wonderful tribute! You do know the tradition of wearing a red rose on Father's Day to indicate your father is living and a white one to indicate he is deceased?
