  Home town friend, you're not forgotten
Posted for: THOMAS DAVID PERRY:
Perro,
We worked together that miserable winter in '67' and we also had some good socializing times. I went to war before you, and God brought me home. You went to war after me, but God took you to his home.
Through my lifes travels, certain things always remind me of you. So dear friend, you are not forgotten.
