Not how did he die, but how did he live, not what did he gain, but what did he give. These are units to measure the worth of a man. Pop, you were the best man I have ever known. I miss you so much.
GI, you were a good friend and very special to me. You helped me out a lot. I will miss you.
May God be with your family as they cope with the void you made.
