My Protege....My Friend......My Little Brother. I
never believed that I would be doing this. I always figured that this
would be done the other way around. You will be missed dearly. The advise
that I gave you on how to deal with the loss of a comrade I am grasping
to as tightly as possible............but I am not sure it is going to
work with you. I miss you!
