My Mentor

Don,
I have cherished the times we flew together and how much you taught me. I ended up surviving our cruise and in good part to what you taught me. I can still remember that first mission as the missiles flew through us and your face when we returned. It was a bit close but we would see many more. Your loss hit me hard, I couldn't believe you were gone but you will never be forgotten!
