A Day at the Beach

John, it was a clear, hot day in the summer of 1969 and you were at home in Houston enjoying a break from your Army training. I was in love with your little brother, Daniel, who was then a medical student at Baylor-Houston. Out of kindness, you offered to drive us to Galveston for a day at at the beach. The three of us splashed in the waves, built sand castles, laughed at our sunburns and ate shrimp until we were groggy. In my innocence I must have thought life would always be so perfectly idyllic.. Now, almost 50 years later, I shudder remembering that within a few months Daniel would be found dead in his dorm room and within two years you would perish in the jungles of Viet Nam. You were both golden boys in the most golden summer of my life. Thank you for giving us that day.
