You are a true American hero who served your country proudly and heroically. I promise to tell your grandchildren all about you and how their "pop-pop" Hymel was truly a great man. Thanks for the memories. R.J.H. -- gone but not forgotten.

I just wanted Dad to know there is no one else in this entire world like him. He had so much spirit. He taught me to not take life so seriously and to laugh at myself. I miss you, Dad. Thank you for being such a beautiful person. I miss you every minute of every day, but I know you are in a better place. You should know you've impacted so many lives and have brought positive acts to this not-so-perfect world. I love you.
