Although it has been 40 years since you left us I still think of you often. I will never forget your kindness to a new "BOOT" and the way you tried every day to keep us safe. I wish I could have done more that awful night but things where just crazy. We all cried the day when we heard you were gone. Another young brother taken too soon from us all.
I have spoken with your family and let them the know the truth of your death and of how much you meant to so many people that they will never know. They where very relieved to finally know the truth and put an ending to the final chapter of your all too short stay on this earth.
I will never forget you and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers until we all meet again with you.
Your brother forever and one day,
