To you all; I stand in awe of your words, sentiments, and titles.. For you to remember the face and or deeds of a fallen brother/sister keeps me as grounded as life can speak to one man. My father died with his boots on, he died protecting others.. If you had the honor of meeting the man it was quickly established that he would give the shirt off his back (literally if needed) to help another if you showed that you are worth saving. He was one of a kind.
I miss... still till this day..
