George Albert Knowlton lost in SS Ario
November 20, 2009
Dear Sir.....I was attempting to write a heartfelt thank you, but sometimes words cannot convey what's in one's heart. Suffice it to say I read an article on your website about my father and the circumstances
I now live in Virginia many many miles from the ocean and can't make the journey, however, there is a nearby cemetery where Union soldiers were buried during the Civil War. Men from New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. I take flowers not only with thoughts of my father but for all those who loved these men and never knew where they lay at rest. I know that feeling for more than sixty years.
Thank you for your lovely comments, it is a response like yours that make my Web Master Terry Kearns in Atlanta Georgia and myself very happy to do what we try to achieve on AHOY, and that is to find someone's dear relative, record it and the circumstances involved, for all out there in the wider world to know of the sacrifice so many made that we might with our children live in peace.
Best wishes from Terry and Mac.
