You were a father, mentor, and personal hero to so many. You had a way of making each and every student that passed your way feel so special and loved. You had such an impact on my life and my family. I wouldn't be where I am today without your guidance and support. I'll always miss our lunches and the time you took to get us out and about this beautiful state. Thank you for my first gold bars that you would years later pin on my shoulders. Your life is something that so many of us strive to emulate. You'll never be forgotten.

Dear Maj,

I never really got a chance to say goodbye. It's been months since you've passed and I got the message from Tannie, but it's still hard every day. I still find myself talking to you throughout my day, and I pretend that I can still hear your helpful words of wisdom, advice, and guidance.
You really saved my life, and I mean literally saved my life. I don't know what I would've done without you, or where I'd be if you weren't there those few nights where I had nowhere to turn and no one to call and cry to. You gave me the inspiration to succeed when I really didn't know how I would make it through even the day. The one thing you always told me to do was to, "Go get'em" every time we parted ways. It's because of you that I still "go get'em" daily at school, work, and life. I think about you often, every day, and I know that there is no, "Goodbye" between you and me, but only a, "See you later." Thanks for all of the guidance, sight seeing, lunch/dinners, and inspiration you gave to me. It's your turn to go get'em.

Thank you for being there for me, Julie and Dawn. You were always there to open the range for us when we arrived early in the morning and there to close the range when we left in the evenings. I'm thankful for knowing you and benefiting from your kindness and wisdom. I'll miss you very much.

Thank you for your support,

It was a honor to know and serve with you in Lam Dong Province, Vietnam. You were always upbeat and positive, and did an excellent job. I will never forget your service.

Thank you for your guidance and motivated so many to lead, to give back, and...well, just be good people.

I know I'm just one of many that you inspired.

Maj, thank you for all you did, for me and so many others. Many times I drew upon the leadership lessons you gave me, and the example of character you set, in overcoming challenges and threats I faced. I can never repay you, but only hope I can pay it forward half as well as you did.
