Stephen, still emblazoned in my memory 365 and 24/7 ... recently in contact with another DSS agent from your neck of the woods. Small world. He put a smile on my face acknowledging the facilities named for 'Sully' and the studies of the mission. I'm crying as I write but that's how I know it's you. Your spirit is with me always. God rest you forever for all you sacrificed and for the loss your family suffered. PeaceLove&Light and one day we'll laugh together again!
