I came across our family night graduation program for LASO Class 313. While you have been gone your memory lives on brother. Today you name still comes up in conversation among your classmates and it is always spoken with honor. Although our time spent together was but a short 18 weeks your presence in our lives will last a lifetime. I am proud to have shared the grinder with you and honored to have met you. You are a warrior and I'm sure we will serve together again, your gaining all that seniority. God bless brother!
