    I remember playing on Bush street with Joey. It seemed like it was just him and I but there were a couple other kids on the block. Sometimes getting into mischief, just trying to have fun. We walked the tracks to go to the Reece pool. If we could get a quarter on Saturday morning we went to the Unity theater to watch a monster movie and color cartoons, it was .15 cents to get in and .10 for candy or popcorn once we had extra money an we got a huge ice cream cone all the kids looked in amazement . We had lots of good times and some bad ones to but I guess that is life.

    Instilled in me is the day my dad took you down to city hall, how you got out of the car in the circle, in traffic and shut the door. Instilled in me are the letters Joni and I wrote to you, drawing our own stamps on the envelopes. Never to be forgotten is the day two marines stood in Babci's kitchen and I asked them to please bring you home. Never to be forgotten is your picture, flowers and a burning candle on a table in babci's living room. A special and heartfelt thank you for Mr. Carter's and Ms. Baileys posts of remembrance.

    I remember the good times we all had in the garage loft as teens. Little did I know that when you dropped by to see me in Nam that it would be the last time we would have a chance to talk. I remember how upbeat you were. I was shocked when heard what happened .
    You will always be in our prayers---Semper Fi

    Dear PFC Joseph John Gucwa, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
