Johnathan became our Hero when he first decided to join the United
States Marine Corp. He and my son were best buds (as well as cousins); I
don't think there was anything they wouldn't do for each other. When he
came to visit after boot camp, I hardly recognized the man he had
become. I was, and always will be, so proud of our "Superman".
Posted with love by Dawn Hopkins in Honor of Our Hero, LCpl Johnathan E
Kirk, on what would have been his 26th birthday (March 24, 2008). Rest
in peace; we love and miss you dearly.
