Man, you were always smiling. If things got real bad and it was really going wrong, I could look at you and you would always have that big smile on your face. I always wanted to ask you just what you were smiling at but we all needed to keep our little secrets.
You were in my squad for seven mouths but I was gone when you stopped smiling. I had been home for about four mouths when I got word about your loss. I always felt that I should have been were to watch over you, but I know now that I am not God and I could not have done any thing to stop it.
I am sure you still have that big smile and today as I write this I have a big smile on my face just thinking about you. After 33 years just thinking of that makes things easier for me. Thank you for that.
