My daughter and I had the opportunity to stop by the Veteran’s cemetery in Guam to visit the grave site of my father, Herbert Sablan Leddy. He passed away when I was only 23 years old and my daughter was a four month old toddler. We dropped by on his birthday, July 5th.
There is no question that I miss him. He died because of complications resulting from a rare muscular degenerative disease. He was relatively young when he died , still in his forties.
Those quiet , solemn moments at the cemetery with my daughter with memories of my dad on his birthday are now locked in my heart.
