This month marks 38 years since the night you died. Had that not happened, you likely would have completed your career and retired as the rest of your peer group have. You would be enjoying your two beautiful daughters and their families, which have produced 3 grand daughters and a grandson. Although the grand kids never got to know you, or you them, they would delight you as they have developed. They honor your memory each year at the memorial...PROUDLY ! Rest in peace, brother.
