You were my brother, Larry's, shadow and vis versa. When I came to visit my grandparents in Hodgenville, you were there! If not Larry was at your house! The two of you were like brothers and I thought of you like a brother. I was at Ft. Bragg with the 18th Military Police BGDE. when I heard what happened. May you rest with Jesus and be as good an Angel as you were a Trooper! It was a sad day when you FELL IN THE LINE OF DUTY !!!
