I love you Papa. I grew up always thinking of you. Those guys got out and got to die with their families around them. They stole that from us. Daddy hurts everyday for you. I still got the pack of gum you gave me. When the time comes, I will be given your service revolver. Momma showed me the pictures and it truly was a massacre.
