My Brother Ira,

We lost 4 brothers this week in Charlotte, NC. This has of course brought you to my mind, not that you're ever far from it. But Rose and I are thinking of you, my dear friend. I so remember all the good times at the Academy. You, Chris, Nick... never a dull moment.

I am so very proud to have served with you. SALUTE.
