Sarge, it's been 22 years since the tragic events which took your life. Please know that you have not been forgotten and that that sad day is relived by those who knew and loved you best, but so long as they have kept you in their hearts and minds, for all these years, you are still with them and always will be, Brother.

God Bless and may your rest continue to be peaceful.
