28 years my loyal, dear friend and we will never ever forget your sacrifice. So much has changed in the world buddy, you couldn't even imagine. The pain is still real. You Station 18 guys gained another angel up there when my dearly beloved brother-in-law, Mitch Hopp (class 69), joined your ranks on December 15th. I'm sure you're all welcoming him home and with open arms. Continue to rest in eternal peace buddy. I love ya and miss you a whole lot. We all do !!!!!!
