Missing you
David, It has been 38 years since you went away, but you are still a part of me. I still think of you and miss you every day of my life. You were the love of my life and I suppose it will be this way until I leave this world. We had such a short time together, but we were so happy and I am glad that I have happy memories. You will always be my hero.

I trained with David as part of Class 7-69 NCOC School, Ft Benning, Ga. We will never forget our comrades.
