Beautiful and dedicated to John and Margaret, my great-grandparents who both immigrated here from Ireland during the famine.I can feel you sometimes although I never knew ye.

The problems that lay before you are not as strong as the Ancestors that walk beside you.

My ancestors were Knights, some met the Pilgrams some fought beside the Founding fathers one was president of the US, all were warriors and fighters. Their blood runs hot in my veins. I'll never let them down and they will never forsake me.
