To my buddy Mike,
I will always see us cruisin' in your black 1958 Chevy Impala,
Until we meet again, my friend.
Your buddy, Don Law
I'm a good friend of a distant relative of yours, Mike. To this day, your family doesn't talk about you much because it hurts so bad. You are loved by many, and missed terribly. I know you're up there with God right now, living the good life for the rest of eternity ... you earned it.
You made the ultimate sacrifice, so that me and the rest of America could live free. I salute you, brother, and very much look forward to meeting you someday.
Sgt G. W. Mills
