    This piece of art touched me, so I thought I would share.

    Somethings just move you in ways you can't explain.

    @Shihan
    Now how does that work?

    @Cubie
    I am so sorry to hear that. My heartvwould break if I lost my dad right now. It would still break later, but more now.

    Somethings you can't explain, You just got to get it. Those that served will understand.
    But for your reference that was during President Reagan's Funeral Procession.

    The Single Riderless Horse that follows the Caisson with boots reversed in the stirrups is called the "Caparisoned Horse".
    A Caparisoned Horse follows the casket of an Army or Marine Corps officer who was a Colonel or above, or the casket of a President, by virtue of having been the Nation's Military Commander in Chief. Boots are reversed in the stirrups to represent a fallen leader looking back on his troops for the last time. source
    I hope that helps clear it up.

    It does'nt get easier later when Dad dies. I lost mine after 10 years of being chair ridden and when he passed I lost my best friend, mentor, hero and the most important influence on my life. I'm 62 years old and will be lost without his wisdom and guidence. Without a word of bias, He is the best person I've ever known. I would give everything I own to spend 10 more minutes with him.

    the detail is impressive, drawings rarely capture the human essence like this. It makes the viewer feel as if they know this man...

    RSG, treasure your mom and ask those questions that you have been putting off. I lost my mom in 2008 at 66. There were so many things that I never asked her.
