    Your family misses you. There isn’t a day that goes by that someone in the family will bring up a special memory with you. You are in our hearts and will never be forgotten. You served your country in your teenage years as a Marine in the Vietnam War. You came home, chose to keep serving your country and your community. All hearts and dreams were broken the night the knock came at our door. Love from all.
