You are not forgotten my brother. You will be in our hearts forever. You are missed each day.

I am forever grateful for you and what you said to me on that cold and rainy morning back in January 2006. It made a true turning point in my life that at the time, I merely thought I understood. I try to pay it forward each chance I get. Until we meet again, Sacred Journey.

Lt. Frank Brooks (ret.)
