The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your memory.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

My brother this reflection can't describe how I miss and love you. You was more than a partner or a friend. You was a brother to me. Thank you for being that big brother. We shared laughters and tears together. That is the reason for our bond. I will never forget you man. I will forever keep you alive in my mind and heart. You left a big void behind but to know that you are no longer suffering and in pain, I will learn to live with that void.
Till we meet again
Love you Big Brother.
