Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

I do not know how I only now became aware of your departure. You were one of the few in this world who saw things from a different perspective...your own perspective. I will always be very thankful to have known you. I miss you

Rest in peace Shipmate, and thanks for your outstanding service to our great nation! Fair winds and following seas. God Bless you and your family!

Liam, you wrote, "Even now, in this crap economy on a cold rainy day I live a life the Sun King Louis the XIV couldn't even dream of. So I'm spending 2013 not complaining, I think....Somehow I ended up happy, in spite of myself."

I meant to respond to that missive. We always think we have more time than we do. I'm glad you had happiness at the end, even if it wasn't as long as we all wanted for you. I'm going to miss those meditations and non sequiturs you shared...

Liam, I was glad you became "family". I regret that there weren't more times spent together. That is my loss. You are missed my friend.

May God conntinue to Bless his wife and Family.

I feel honored to have met Liam briefly in our church office in St.Florian. I was impressed then and enjoyed the conversation and learning more about him and now, after reading the Guest Book, I believe I did not realize how special this man was. I wish I could have known him more. My prayers are for him and his family.

?? ????????,??? ?????? ????. I'll always remember the fun times we had at DLI and Misawa. The world will not be the same without you.

Thanks for so much, my world is a better and stranger place for having known you.

A funnier, wittier, more intelligent person there may never be. Rare is the talent that can make another person think so profoundly, yet laugh so heartily. Liam most certainly had that gift. You are sorely missed, moy droog. If I make it up there, look for the guy wearing your Zippy the Pinhead shirt I “borrowed” from you back in Misawa all those years ago. I still have it and will cherish it even more now. I'll return it to you then. Until then, na svyazi.
