I miss you already, cousin. It seems like just a few days ago that we were 7 and at a clambake at your grandparents' house. I always looked forward to the bakes because I knew you'd be there. Those are some of the best memories I have of my childhood.
You know your friends and family are all proud of you. It is Marines, men like you who make it good to be an American.
Love and miss you always. We'll never forget...
