OORAHHH ! Rest in peace my friend.... you have more than earned it.

Semper Fidelis.

Thank you so much for your service. Your words and actions have, and will continue to inspire others for many many years to come. Semper Fi.

Semper Fi, Marine. Your memory will live forever as long as there is a Marine Corps.

It has been such an honor to have R.V. as my friend for the past ten years. I had the privilege of painting his portrait as a young Marine on Peleliu and working with him on a beach landing painting. My sons got to know him and we all learned so much from this very gracious and generous man on our visits. He served his country honorably both in the military and as a civilian. Texas and the U.S. has lost a true hero.

May the love of family and friends along with the Bible Ford found at some 34:6, 7 bring you peace and comfort.

such a wonderful person you made our Matthew so proud to have been friends. God gained a great man. Ronda Glasco
