BA was best friends with my then husband, Michael Taylor, while we were stationed in Hawaii. They were stationed at Camp Smith and I was at Kaneohe Bay. I remember all the fun times we had together. I remember his laugh, his Southern drawl, that swagger and his no judgment attitude. I remember Michael and I traveling to South Carolina for his wedding and how in love he was. And how wonderful his family was. I miss him and his friendship. I can't believe it's almost 20 years since his passing. Semper Fi brother. You are truly missed!
