Gunny! Doc! It makes me sad that you are no longer with us. I miss your smile, generous hugs and awesome stories. I was lucky enough to receive the kindest letter from you in December. It made my heart happy that you were thinking of me and my family while we are here at Camp Lejeune. I think of you often, especially being around all the marines. Heaven has another sweet angel. Your beautiful wife and you are reunited again. I know you were anxious to see her again. Love you! Rest in peace...

Rest in peace, Ham. Happy hour won't be the same without his stories.
