ArmySSgt. Kenneth D. Jerome
By Paul L. Jerome, Bangor, ME USA
My father, the hero I never knew. He did his time, 10th Engineers, in Korea. Survived, came home a happy man. He met my mother and it was love. They had three girls, then 15 years later, I was born.

I knew this hero for 16 months. He died in the backyard of a heart attack June, 1973.

Perhaps it was for him I joined the Marine Corps. Perhaps I felt I had something to prove. Whatever the reason, I know he was there in spirit that fall day. I could feel him with me as I was pronounced a Marine.

Dad, I may have never really known you, but I will never forget you.

I love you,

The Broken Chain... We knew that morning that God was going to call your name.. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you , the day God called you home..You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you , you are always at our side.. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same: but as God calls us one by one, the Chain will link again.

Dad, We love you so much and we miss you so deeply.. Please remember that you are always with us wherever we are..Our memories are wonderful and nothing can ever take that away from us..

Dad, someday when we are all with you in heaven, we will rejoice again.. Please remember that I will always be " Daddy's Little Girl " .. No one can ever take your place with us.. I love you Dad.
