Remembering Harry Westmire WWII, USN

I wanted to take a couple minutes to say "thank you" to your organization.

Harry Westmire, a WWII Navy vet, passed away in 1986. He was my favorite Granddad.

Unfortunately, I was told a month after he passed away, which was extremely frustrating to

me. I was in my early-20s and life moved on with a frustration I never had the chance to say

"goodbye".

Fast forward 34 years later, and I decided to see what I could find out about my Grandpa,

when I realized he had passed away in Cottonwood, AZ. I had no clue he was "here" in AZ

where me and my family moved to less than a year ago!

After Googling his name, I was completely surprised to find that he was left in an "unclaimed"

status in the Cottonwood funeral home, through no fault of the home. My mother, and her

sister, never passed any information on to us kids.

I was able to not only "find him', but I saw how MIAP had taken him from the funeral home

and...with honors and respect...moved him to the National Cemetery in Phoenix. With Military

honors. After 34 years, I was able to go visit my Grandpa, touch his headstone and honestly,

get pretty emotional in a very good way.

Although this is a simple email, I want you to know this was a "healing" situation for me. I'd

been cut off from him and now, thanks truthfully to MIAP, I have some history, which was

previously lost to me.

So, thank you Clyde, and MIAP, for giving me some peace that had alluded me.

Best,

Bill Drews
