As I look at your face a ton of emotions are set off. I still tell the stories of past to all the new. I tell them what I think a Trooper should be and gauge them by how you are. I wish you were here as well as Martha and the kids. You are lived and missed by many my friend. I think of you every day as you picture is on my desk to remind me to treat people as you would want to be treated. I will cherish all that you taught me.
