Sadly in today’s environment I felt the need to protect your memory several times recently. Part of me is relieved that you don’t have to see what is going on here. You gave your life for the good of humanity and right now humanity doesn’t deserve it, forever a hero...BTW you would approve of the man I have in my life, something tells me he is just like you ♥️
