Hi Padre! I just talked with Jack and thought I would visit with you.

Just think, over thirty three years, in some ways just the blink of an eye and in many other ways... life times away. I just talked with Jack. A real great guy. I know if Jack knew he was going to die in Nam, he would have prefered to die in battle. I have met guys who were in the bush with him and they said he was a real grunt; the best. I agree. I always knew you were ready to die, I mean a priest and all; but I didn't think death would find you in Nam. Did you? That's right, you died daily with Christ. I hope you are with Him and Jack with the both of you. Do you know how pained everyone was when you guys went down? What a shock. Charlie N was devistated. I wonder if he ever got over it. And Fr.Bruno the Bear - I wonder where he is now. That big guy cried like a baby and cussed like a marine when he heard you went down with Jack. I often wonder about Jack's bride to be. Boy was he in love. War? I wonder if anyone, not having experienced the battle, even knows what we carry every day of our lives. The memory of you guys is a big part of that load. Take care, I'll come back if you like... ok I'll be back. Scoat the Scout
