Danny. I attended a fellow brother's funeral this week. Driving through Pomona's streets lined with folks and city personnel paying tribute to Greggory brought back that same deep ache I felt the day we honored you. I shall never forget all the many kindnesses you showed me and the story you shared about your humble beginnings on that beach in Korea. I think of you often and carry your promise to me .... "forever protected, never indebted" ..... Rest in God's grace. With much affection, Dems
