In Memory

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

General George S. Patton Jr. (1885-1945)

 

It is with deep sadness and heavy heart that we inform every one of the passing of our colleague and dear friend, Mary Denise Haddon, on November 8th, 2022.  Mary led a long and courageous battle with cancer but selflessly always put the good of our organization and our honored veterans first. As the long-time president of the Rocky Mountain Honor Flight board of directors, she was a visionary leader who provided strong leadership and values that made us all want to be better persons in our daily lives.  Mary spent countless hours preparing each and every honor flight insuring it was an absolutely perfect experience and memory for every veteran. Our organization is what it is today because of her endless devotion to serving our veterans. Her outgoing personality, sense of humor and boundless talents were a blessing to all that knew her. All of us at the Rocky Mountain Honor Flight will miss our dear friend more than words could ever express.  The sun has set on an amazing life – rest in peace dear Mary.

 

They’re not gone until they are forgotten.
