What a heartwarming story! It brought some tears to my eyes. He was a very special man, as well as a handsome man. So happy for his son and his family. Indeed a lot to be thankful for.

Truely a great 'Thanksgiving' Story. Knowing one's own family history can be a wonderful thing having dabbled in my own genology. For such a turnout of people after so many years certainly demonstrate's this man's father's character of love and spirit.

What a great story to share on this day when we think of those things for which we are grateful. And I want to express my thanks to Taylor family for the sacrifice of this father in service to our country. And thanks to all veterans and service personnel. God bless you all.

Gail Rosenblum is one of the Star Tribune's most valuable assets, so no surprise that she discovered and thoughtfully shared the Taylor family's incredible and inspiring story.

What an absolutely beautiful story. A profound reminder that the kindness and care of people half a world distant can touch our hearts. Today might be a good day to do something helpful for someone far away. The opportunities, through churches, charities and social service organizations, are just about limitless.
