In loving memory of my beloved uncle,
whom I have missed from my life for thirty years.

May he always be remembered for the great person he was
and the hero he turned out to be.

With all my love to you...
Julie



On this date, in a time when he should of been dating, laughing and
enjoying his life he was taken from us. He served his country proud and strong.
