The Love of My Life

Not A Day Goes By
You were my Hero before you were even drafted. Two more days and you would have been on your way home. I married and had 2 sons, then divorced because I learned with you what real love is and haven't found it since. My oldest son, when he was 7, held me and cried with me on our first visit to The Wall. He said he wished you were his dad. Now he is 31, and people always think you are his dad until they notice the dates. He resembles you so much, I feel your heart in him. Both my sons know all they can of you and honor you.

When the song "I'll Be There" came out, everyone called me and said you wrote that "from above" for me.
You are the most wonderful man I know.
I love you and always will.

Keep on riding
you may be gone but not forgotten. I spent twenty years in the Air Force from 1972-1992, and not once have I forgotten the night you saved my life. And the times we had riding together.
