Wal-mart does a good thing

Many of you don't know that my father passed away unexpectedly June 16th of an infection in his blood. He was only 64. My father worked at Wal-mart for over 5 years. When he passed, Wal-mart went out of their way to make sure all of the vacation and profit sharing that he had earned was released to us. They made it all as easy as they could, many times doing most of it themselves.

Yesterday, my wife received a phone call from the Human Resources manager at the Wal-mart where he used to work. She informed my wife that this Friday, November 17, Wal-mart is presenting a grant in the amount of $2500 to the Viet Nam Veterans Fund on behalf of Wal-mart in my father's name. The call was to invite us to attend the brief ceremony and also to present this grant ourselves to the fund's representative.

My father was laid to rest at the Houston Veterans National Cemetary with military honors. Not only was he honored by the Veterans Administration at that time, but Wal-mart continues to honor him now.

My father would have been 65 on November 16.
