Dear Mr Henriott,
I'm sorry I lost contact with you but I'm really glad I'm able to visit Dad on the I pulled up the site through Google and I do check the USS Oakland site periodically for updates. You have done a magnificent service and job with this site and the links that are driven by it. As a side note I'm adopted. My Mom and dad were unable to have children and after two years or marriage they decided to adopt. I was added to the family when I was 6 months old so Mom and dad are the parents I knew. He was a generous and kind hearted man and probably too easy on me. I've learned a lot of lessons as the years have gone by and am coming to understand some of things that he underwent as a parent. My dad has two wonderful grandchildren, two boys born to me and my wife Kimberly. The is 13 and a heck of great kid, lanky and lean and hell of great competitive swimmer. The younger one is 4 and full of mischief as all children that age. Both boys are the core of our hearts. I take time to talk a lot about dad and continue to introduce them to his history of which this site is a very important part. My Mom (his wife) is still alive and lives next time to time making sure the boys know as much as possible about him.
Please accept once again my deepest heartfelt thanks for all that you've done.
May God bless.
Love you Grandfather
