Dear Mrs. Pressley and family,

I would like to offer my personal condolences on JC's passing. I was honored to join the other members and lead the Transylvania County Honor Guard in providing military honors. We view this as a tangible demonstration of the sincere gratitude of his fellow veterans and citizens of the country he once served. Thank you for allowing us to honor him in this way.

Very respectfully,

Doug Poad
CDR, SC, USN (Ret.)
