    I am a volunteer at a soldier's home in MASS and I hear stories all the time from the brave men and women that live there. How they wonder how they survived such a horrible war and lost so many of their friends. One day for some reason I was looking on this page and your face popped up and I just felt connected.You were so young, missed out your entire life.Thank you for your service to our country. your sacrifice of your life for all of us.. Heart felt for your family, Darlene ( I would love know about Gary, his life)

    Oh delightful a person you were. You had the most impish smile and you and my brother did some daring deeds for sure. Mark and I are good friends and we discuss you and someone I lost also. If you have the time up there would you look up Larry W. Rhodes and if they allow, give him a hug from me. I hope you know ho deeply Mark misses you and how you are never far from his thoughts. Believe me he keeps your memory alive daily. You are missed ad you are very loved by many of us.
