    Benny you were my friend. When you passed in the Nam. I was deeply hurt. You were not just a friend but you were a friend closer than a brother. I think of you often and pray that your family will cherish your memory.

    Charles was killed when I was only 1 12, but he always sent lots of hugs and kisses through the letters he wrote to my mother. I believe he was a very loving guy and I'm sad to have never had the chance to know him.
