I keep watching your memorial from Afghanistan. It is so clear how well these men knew you and how much they love you. I am so very proud of the man you became, and so happy that you left this world without an enemy. You were a friend to everyone and had compassion for all of God’s children, even those you did not know but served anyway. I love you and I will forever remember and appreciate your big heart and your happy smile. I miss you; everything about you.
