"Hi Brother! Man do I miss you! My other angel now sits beside you in heaven. I know you and mom are having lots of catch up time. I really miss both of you. Loosing you was hard enough and now mom??? It just seems unreal. I am still waiting for her to call me at any moment now. The longer I wait the more the reality sets in that I am not going to get that call. I love you guys. My life is empty without you and mom but I am going to do my best to be strong for the others. I donít understand or have the answers of why you and mom have been ripped from my life but if this is what's to be I rather her by your side than anywhere else. You are loved soldier. You are missed! You will never be forgotten! Love Sis!"

I understand, in theory only, that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take your families and friends pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life.

""O Henry" That is what I called PFC Henry. I served with him in Korea, and I will never forget his always positive attitude and ever present smile, no matter what the situation. To his family, you have my condolences, you raised a great kid who was always eager to offer his help, and one who cared deeply for his battle buddies. I definately know how proud of him you must be and you have every right. A great soldier who will be missed by all. To all those who did not get the chance to know this wonderful soldier, take it from those of us who sucked in every situation alongside him. He was a soldier's soldier and will be missed by all who knew him. "MANCHU" See you on the high ground "O HENRY", you take the "12"""
