Happy Birthday Dane!

Happy Birthday Dane! I wish you were here to celebrate with. We miss you daily. Please know that it warms my heart when I go to the Legacy home page and your picture is there right under Pat Tillman. Places me right in that moment when I told you “they don't remember who has been killed.” You responded “Pat Tillman” when asked to name another you could not but you told me with such conviction “I am not afraid to die for my country” I was taken aback. That little boy whom I brought that bike became a young man. Your memory continues to inspire and again proves you were correct…”they don't forget.”

Happy Birthday Dane! There can be no greater time spent than that which is spent with God. You are both in good company! RIP Nephew, I love and miss you soooo much.

Hi Dane. Just thought I'd drop by and let you know we still think of you dear one. Justin is joining the Jr ROTC in high school next year. He has pix of you up still in his room. I miss you and your family. Your pictures always make me smile.

Good morning friends and family!!

Below you will find a link to Dane's Scholarship that I have started here in TX. In case you didn't know, Dane went to high school here in Texas the first year Warren High School opened. He served on their very first drill team and managed to be a part of the first competition that traveled to Colorado Nationals at USAFA, where he won first place. I have spoken to the cadets at the school, the administration, and the faculty. During my speech I found that there were at least three of his former teachers that did not know he had been KIA. They shared wonderful stories and memories of Dane with me. Every parent's dream is to know that their kid left an amazing impression on others.

If you would like to donate to this worthy cause, please see the attachment for instructions. The NISD Education Foundation (NEF) is tax deductible. Not only is this scholarship something that Dane would have wanted, it's such a wonderful legacy that he has left behind. This scholarship will also give a student a chance at an education. Through efforts like this, Dane's memory continues to stay alive in my heart and yours too.

If you are unable to donate, I understand and please know that I appreciate all your prayers and support that you have provided me and my family in so many other ways. For that I can't thank you enough! You all have truly been my rock over the years!

Love to you all!

Dane,

We will never forget you, nor the sacrifice that you gave for this great nation that we call home. I can't fake-- I haven't played drums since you left us almost 6 and a half years ago. I thought about picking up some drumsticks to start back up, but it's hard. Brings back too many raw emotions. Too many memories. I love and miss you bro. I have one of the sharpest guardian angels I could ever ask for, and for that, I am forever grateful.

Salute.

-Mar
