Sixteen years ago I lost my first love.

I have so many fond memories of our time together..... like the morning you drove to work zipped up in your sleeping bag because the heat was out in your truck. Only you! I'm very proud of your accomplishments and service and consider myself very fortunate to have been a part of your life. Thanks to you and all of LE for putting your lives on the line every shift! Rest in Peace, Eddie!

Butch and JoAnne, I pray you are doing well. I think of you often.
