SFC Graham,

Thank you Ledell for your love, leadership, and your friendship. Thank you for making me a part of your family you and Debra. I will always reflect on your wise guidance, the care you and Debra showed towards me and my young family in the early years of our friendship, your protection and watch care of me during the tough times, and for maintaining my Army nickname of “Flip”. God bless you Ledell. We will meet again soon my big little brother from another mother!
