My dad was in the DPS Academy with you and thought the world of you. He told me that y'all were always beside each other line and drills because of your last names. He also told me about the antics that y'all did in the academy. I sure wish I could have met you here on Earth, because my dad can sure picks some good friends. I find peace in knowing that one day I will get to meet you in Heaven and will get to hear you tell about you and my dad from your stand point.
