We had a little get together for you today. Nothing big, just some guys who loved you and who won’t forget who you were as a man, a friend, and an officer. We laughed telling stories about you and we cried recalling the night you left us. Still miss you so much but I know you and Rog will be waiting for me when I am called home. Keep the campfire going cousin. I will be there in a blink.
