  You were an amazing man with a heart of gold. I dont think I will ever meet anyone as wonderful as you. I never saw you turn your back on anyone and you even helped those you didnt even know. That's what I loved about you. I will always miss you and there will not be a day that will go by that I will not think about you. We had a bond that no matter what could not be seperated no matter how mad we got at one another at times. I love you Pern and until we meet again I know you will still be watching over me and my kids that love you like a dad! Miss you my dear friend thank you for everything you did at home and serving our Country you will forever and always be my hero!
