Lt. Col. Henry Paul Brauner

Lt. Col. Henry Paul Brauner

My dad: Lt. Col. Henry Paul Brauner died on my 10th birthday, just

Before the war was over. All I could remember was we had everything

Set up outside & that dad never came home. Then in the early evening

A blue vehicle drove up our driveway & Identified mom: Gloria Madline

Brauner, & then broke the news. My sister conforted mom that night, &

I comforted my mother for the rest of her life, for she had a hard time

Dealing with her husbands death. My dad was only 36 yrs old @ the time,

& very much missed by us all, though we all delt with it in different ways.

I didn't find out til later, that we had lots of people who were wearing

Dads MIA bracelet & praying for us all these many years.


Note: I added stitching @ the side, which is not a part of the scrap kit.

Awe - such a heart-wrenching story. That is the tough part of war. I'm so sorry for your loss. I grew up without a father as well. He died when I was 6 and he was only 36 years as well. But how touching is that that you found out all those people were wearing those bracelets and praying for you. That's very special and you've created a beautiful memory page here. Love the stitching - I'm not the "scrap police" after all, it's your LO! Thanks for playing along!

Great tribute to a difficult time.

I like the stitching...I wished there was some in the kit too.
