Not sure what to say?

I learned about you from playing the game Dream Day: True Love that your son Richard made on Apple. Thank you from another military family.

Thanks for your service to Our Country, and for being an inspiration to 1000s of officers - especially USMA grads. Enjoy playing lots of golf in heaven ;)

DAY IS DONE,

GOD IS NIGH.

May your body rest, and your spirit soar. You will be greatly missed.
