My Grandfather Willis Lee Brainard Was Called Home This Morning

This morning, my Grandfather Willis Lee Brainard was called home... 

At this moment, he's kissing my Grandmother and hugging my Father. And there is a long line of old friends and family waiting to shake his hand and welcome him home.

I'll forever be grateful for having this amazing man in my life and I'm a better human because of his influence on me.

I love you Grandpa...





















My Grandfather was a proud veteran. He served in the Air Force during World War II as a "Ball Turret Tail Gunner" with the 323rd Bomb Group453rd Bomb Squadron from 1941 to 1945.
