My Good Friend
Posted on 5/29/13 - by Anthony Lopez adlopez@comcast.net
 
 
Freddy and I grew up together in Thornton, CO. We graduated from Mapleton HS in 1967. Always smiling, always a practical joker and always a good friend. We were in Vietnam at the same time but I didn't know of your passing until several years later.
 
Hard to believe it has been over 42 years since you left us. Rest in Peace my friend.

We loved you Tony!
I grew up a few houses down from Tony.
We all wanted to grow up to be Tony.

Since that day in 1971, when a Chaplain showed up at his mom's house, she really hasn't left that house.
Maybe the dead aren't the most to suffer.
