They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and your ultimate sacrifice. On this the 20th anniversary of your death, I honor you my friend. I miss you greatly. I will never forget.
