“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.” – Josh Billings

Iowa yesterday and over 1500 people attended to pay their respects and say goodbye to one of this nations true heros.
There were tears and smiles as family reminisced over the man he was and the bravery he used to protect this country. What tugged at the heartstrings of all at the funeral that day was his number one confidant, Hawkeye, Tumilson’s Lab. Who even after his final mission refused to leave his masters side. These photos were taken by Lisa, Tumilson’s cousin who wanted to share this moment with others that could not attend the family.
