It’s still hard to think about this. You’ve had a positive impact on my life, even to this day, 23 years after I graduated boot camp. You made a lasting impression on every recruit in Plt. 1127, whether you know it or not. Thank you.

Hey there G ~ It's been a minute since I've been by here... life has been crazy. Our girls are thriving, which I know you already see.. Sariyah is conquering the world..she got a 94% on her most recent accounting exam ...and she landed a job in the acounting department at the University... she is taking 18 units this semester. That girl is so disciplined and so beautiful... she is aiming for the big BIG leagues for grad school... possibly a JD MBA ...stay tuned..;) Raine just bought a new car..she is working for an animal hospital..and dear God that young woman is a super model...she still has your hilarious sense of humor and wit..and your stubborn streak lol but she has your winning smile and gentle soul..everyone loves her. Naiya is almost 6 ft tall...with a 4.18 GPA and an old kind soul...she's running for senior class president (in Sariyah's footprints) ..she makes us all laugh everyday and she is beautiful beyond words... I would give anything to see the four of you chopping it up in conversation.. I don't think the laughter would ever end.. nor the love. We miss you. ...Every.Single.Day. Tomorrow will be an emotional one for it always is... but rest easy "Rift" (lol) ...we've got this! Always in my heart ~ Red

I went and saw Black Panther on the opening day because I know how much you love Marvel. You would've loved it. I think about you every day and miss your guidance although often times the universe does things that make me realize you're still here helping me and I don't feel as alone. I love you, Dad.

This news was terribly sad. I just found out, and it's fresh, painful and raw for me. Who knew it would hit me so hard? I can only imagine how the people who were very close to Gerald feel. I'm so sorry for everyone who knows how big of a star we lost with his death. Keep the memories moving forward, and live some of his high standards so someone can emulate you too for decades to come. I know that's a tall order, but some of us can at least pretend we could fill those shoes.
Regardless of how well you knew him, we call all keep missing him and loving him and appreciating his positive influence in our lives. Sometimes bad things happen to good people, and it makes no sense. Some questions go unanswered, and we just have to flow with the confusion. If I had a chance, my first question would be, "How do you find shirts that your arms can fit in?" And I'd judge how many follow up questions he'd allow by his reaction to the first one. All my love brother, I'm sorry you had to go so soon.

Big G......still think of you from time to time. Especially all those days on the PT field as hats teaching recruits pugil sticks, bayonet, confidence course, rappelling, and line training! But I think the best memories are going to you and Molly's house on Sunday mornings and eating those delicious waffles! Those were the best! Miss you man and hope to see you again someday!

They say that when your dreams become more peaceful and the ease of rest falls around you...that your loved ones are peacefully resting in heaven... i do not know for the life of me if that is true... but I would love to believe it.. I went to the funeral of a friend you she was a beautiful soul gone too soon..a mother.. and I saw the pain and anger in her childrens faces... I cried for them like I still cry for our girls...but I took comfort in the knowledge that grief is a wheel..and happy days will come back around for them.. it wont always be the sadness... though the sadness will always come. I miss you...forever. we love you G... p.s. can you believe that little Naiya will be a teenager this year? Oh my goodness she would make you laugh...xoxo

Gerald was a true friend. G treated me like his little brother. I lost contact with Gerald a couple of years ago. I started an internet search see if I could find him. It took me a few minutes to finally click on the link for the obituary for my brother. We served together at 29 Palms. G would let me go to his parents Apple Valley on weekends. His mom Ms. Daisy treated me like her son. His house was like an oasis in the desert. Spending time there was like going home. Their house was so loving. Gerald and I took trips to Vegas, and Lake Havasu during spring break when MTV would broadcast there in the early 90s. I have nothing but good memories of Gerald. He will be missed greatly.

Going through it today G! I miss you so much it hurts. I think Ive cried for the last 2 hours.. just cant seem to shake it... you already know that though, huh? We leave in a few days ...taking our girl to Kauai for her sweet 16 gift. She was supposed to be in Europe with you... maybe that's why my heart is so broken right now.. I'm trying so hard to not be angry...but I am. I'm doing my best for our girlies...somedays are just harder than others. I need you now. I close my eyes and there you are..big wide smile...the signature sway that your shoulders move when you walk...the way you laugh and talk at the same time...I know you're here...I know you're still holding me up...I just miss you. xoxo Our girls miss you. :(

Dear Staff sergeant, I haven't seen you since 1997 but somehow you popped into my dreams last night to say Hi. When someone has a big impact on you they really stick with you I guess. In my previous post I forgot to apologize. I know I let you down and I'm still ashamed to this day. After I saw you for the last time on October 10th '97, I went on to infantry school up in Pendleton. About half way thru I found out my recruiter wasn't 100% honest and I didn't get the MOS I wanted. I got mad and basically gave up. I should have looked to my time with you for strength at that time but I just got mad and quit. You had such confidence in me, pushing me to be a leader. I let you down... I guess I didn't (and probably still don't) have the confidence in myself that you had in me. I'm sorry. I still remember when you showed up to boot grad day on your day off and made a point to come find me and say goodbye. Thank you. Oh...and, I also miss that great big smile. When you would try to make me loose my composure in formation, I was always doomed, lol..every time! God bless you and your family Staff Sgt.

Missing You sooooo much my friend. I sure could use a good talking to right about now. It still doesn't feel real or maybe I just cannot accept it. I still have your phone number in my phone, as if I expect to see you pop up on my caller ID. I still think about our last conversation. As you already know, I will hold that close to my heart for eternity. Love you Lance!!

Mr. Glasper. I was a young Marine recruit in 1997, A co. 1st RTB plt. 1089. I remember you well. I remember your leadership. I remember your sense of humore (although laughing at it would have caused me terrible pain and grief). I remember diamond pushups on the quarterdeck. Lots of them.

I was reading up on the internet, trying to find if any of my former Drill Instructors ever made the news. Unfortunately, I came upon this. I didn't know you for very long, but your impact on my life walks with me every moment. You have a direct influence on the Marine I eventually became, you have a direct influence on the man I am today. For your family, I grieve for the loss of an irreplaceable individual that changed, at least one, life. Words cannot express how thankful I am for you, and how sorry I am that you will not be able to further influence others.

I miss you everyday...but these days are the ones that break my heart over and over again.I want you to come back....

I'm sorry, I meant July 15 to Oct 10, not that it matters I guess. Gerald had just gotten bumped up to Staff Sgt while I was with him in 1127 Alpha Co. He kept pushing me to be a squad leader, and I'm sure my ADD attention span must have drove him nuts, but he didn't give up. I only knew him for those 10 weeks or so, but he made a possitive impact on my life and I will never forget him.

I am so sad to hear of the passing of Gearld Glasper. He was my drill instructor at MCRD San Diego in 1997, oct 10 thru july 15. He was a great man. I had such fond memories of him that I wanted to see how he was doing.
That's when I found out about the crash, and the news immediately brought tears to my eyes. It takes a lot to make a marine cry.... That's how great a man he was. I wish all the best for his family.
Semper Fi Staff Sgt, we will miss you.

LOL we are looking forward G... but I miss you sooo much.There was a halo around the moon last night... we love you too!

God blessed us both by giving us the same birth date and allowing us to share it as good friends for so many years. I will see you again one day, for your love and guidance is greatly missed. Watch over me, and see me smile when I look up and think of you my friend. God Bless! Your brother, Miguel

Gerald, you were truly one of a kind. As your Company Commander, you cut me no slack, you made me laugh until it hurt, and were always so damn fun to be around. It kills me that you're no longer with us. Know that you helped me to never take life too, in fact, helped me to be a better leader. Gerald, you were a big man with a big heart. And we Marines are so lucky that you were a part of our special clan. We will never forget you.

I will never forget the first time I met Gerald. He came to pick me up, big strong and he was all nervous. Really cute! I was nervous too...but that disappeared very quickly. Your smile, the way you looked at me, made me feel wonderful and made everything alright. I remember and loved your jokes, loved how you kicked my butt with poker. I remember our long and deep conversations. What we shared made a large impact on both of us so I will never forget Gerald. I hope to have touched him as he has touched me...
I have looked into his eyes and saw a man with a beautiful heart, a wonderful dad whom will never be forgotten and is missed by many. Thanks to Gerald I met his wonderful brother and his fabulous wife! I am forever grateful for having met them. My condolences go out to his daughters, his brother, brother's wife, his father and the rest of his family, to his close friends and to everybody else who knew him and miss him. RIP Gerald.

There isn't a day that passes that I don't think of you and cry...and for every moment of sadness I try and remember two things that make me smile. It's how I have figured out how to let the happy beat the sadness... I will spend the rest of my life fulfilling the promises I made to you Gerald. I will continue to raise our daughters with love, honesty, integrity and respect. I will never forget you. And I will never stop loving you. And I will always consider you in the choices I make for our beautiful children. You were the greatest father in this world... and the truest friend. The love we shared was ours...for only us to understand... and it will live eternally in my heart and I will always be your butterfly. I miss you so much. Rest In Peace G ...

I got to know Gerald over the past few years, as someone I frequently ran into at Gold's Gym. When I first met him, he introduced himself and weeks went by and before he saw me again and I was impressed that he remembered my name. Yet, I was embarrassed at having forgot his and he knew it. He asked me, "What's my name?" after several bad guesses I apologized. So I actually wrote his name in my training diary so I would not forget it, since I did not regularly go to that gym. Over the years we'd talk some during our workouts and I was really impressed by Gerald the person. He was very personable and approachable person my only regret is that I did not take the time to get to know him better outside the gym. I was always took it for granted that there would be other opportunities to catch up as two vets would and talk about "back in the day" stories. I will forever regret not having that opportunity again and missing a friendship that was never given an opportunity to fully develop. There's a popular Irish blessing that I remember a few lines from that best describes my feelings. "May the road always rise up to meet you. May the warm sun always shine on your face. May the warm rain fall softly on your fields. May the wind be always at your back and may GOD always keep you in the palm of his hand Gerald. Until we meet again . . .

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
I recall being in biology with Lance at Hook Jr High and he had the stangest way of letting me know that he had a crush on me. Lance took the eyeball out of the frog that we had to dissect and threw it at me across the room. There was never a dull moment with Lance.
Mr.Glasper & Patrick,I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Mr. Glasper and family,

Thank you for giving us such a great man. I am honored to have served with Lance in the Marines and to have continued our friendship after we left the service. Words simply can't describe the impact Lance had on the lives of his friends. I wish you all peace is knowing that Lance lived a great life and that he will be forever loved in the hearts of his friends. With such a great loss, we are reminded of how fortunate we are to have known him and to have loved him. Lance, you shall forever be my brother. Semper fidelis and thank you for your friendship.

Lance- my dear friend, I will always remember the smiles and the hugs (from way back in the day). We were both looking so forward to your next trip to Fort Walton Beach, Florida and getting to give each other that one big "swishy".
I cry tears of sorrow for your family, for your father, your brother and sister-in-law, and especially for the girls. They were extremely fortunate to have had you as their father - even for such a short time.
I will forever cherish your memory, I know you will keep The Gates well guarded - my "Honeyguns" - my friend- I can only hope that when my day comes - I will be granted the wish to see you again and you be there to greet me- I miss you...May You Rest Peacefully.

My dear friend Lance, I truly miss you and your kindness...I still can't believe that this is real. My heart is in denial. You we're taken from this world far too soon. But I know the Angels are rejoicing in heaven to have someone such as you. I will always cherish our last visit a few months ago and the long talk and lots of laughs we had that day. And the laugh we always had, that no matter where we went we went to eat whatever you ordered it was never enough. Your food would come out and we would both look at it and say, thats it??? Lol...Good memories...So glad I signed the "Best Friends Forever Contract" in Jr. High, it was the best contract I ever signed!! I will truly miss you my friend. ?? XOXO ??

I'm still in shock and my heart is broken for the loss of someone taken way before his time. My happiest moments working at Golds were while you were keeping me company up at the front desk. I will always cherish your insight on life and the best hugs ever. You've clearly touched a lot of lives ane hearts, and I'm thankful that I was one of those hearts this past year as well. Rest in peace my friend, you will be truly missed and always remembered fondly.

Lance, how could this happen to such a great person? We just got back in contact through facebook, you sent me some silly messeges and then you leave me again? I'm so mad at you right now! (No I am not!) I just wish you didn't have to leave us all so soon! I know I am your age and we are still so young that this just really breaks my heart. I know I will see you again soon, and this time it will always be forever. You so did not deserve to leave us, in such the way you did...and I am so sorry my friend! You will always be in my thoughts and I will never forget you! I miss you already so much!

I served with Lance in the Corps in Iwakuni, Japan. He also knew my wife whom I was dating at the time we served together. We are both saddened by this sudden loss. Lance was a really good man, and I wish that I had more time to know him. The memories of serving together in Iwakuni will always be with me. Semper Fi Brother.

I'm glad for the "chance" encounter of meeting again all the way across the country walking down the hallway at work here in DC. May the happy memories sustain your friends and family during this time of missing you.

Lance...what can I say? I miss you so much. Your texts always made me smile. You made my days brighter and better by a few simple words to show you cared. This world has lost a wonderful person and will never be the same. You were one in a million and I feel blessed and privileged to have called you my friend. Rest in peace and know that you were loved and will be forever missed.

I still can't believe you are gone. I'm grateful to have had you as a close friend since Hook Jr. High. Even after we lost touch, you manage to have found me after 20 yrs. You were a funny guy and such a kind man. I will miss our talks. You will always be in my memories & in my heart. You were a TRUE friend from the start. R.I.P

Lance, sorry I didn't keep touch more often. I remember you made me a sign that read,"Sir Gemini". I think two weeks ago you buzz me on fb, calling me "sir gemini". We "lol" and talked about little things. I miss you "Man". I wish we had more time....time for me to say Thank you" for your friendship. We grew up together in Tacoma and on George AFB. I miss you "Man". Your brother and friend.

I cannot tell you the shock I had when I was told at the gym last Thursday that Gerald had been killed on his motorcycle. Less than a week prior I had exchanged greetings with him at the gym during a workout. Gerald was one of the people who I knew really “got” what bodybuilding was all about, and why excelling at what you did in life was important. I am deeply saddened by his passing and will surely miss seeing him when I go to the Bailey’s Gold’s. The world has lost another bright star. My thoughts are with his family and those closest to him.

I served with you in the USMC and started a life long relationship as a fellow Marine. Recently we reconnected after a long time, it felt good! I was beyond shock to hear that you had been taken away from this earth, "YOU" will forever be missed by many. 'Semper Fidelis' Marine

Lance, I never planned to do something like this so soon! I am still having a hard time believing that you are gone. You have been a very loyal, loving and a caring friend for most of my life. You know me better than anyone else, even better than I know myself. When you visited me earlier this year, you reminded me of things that I totally forgot about from back in the day. That is when I knew that you were the most geniune and loyal friend to me. That time was very special to me. I will hold that weekend close to my heart. I can still feel the big strong hug you gave me before you left like it was yesterday. I knew then that everything was going to be okay. Now it is my time to visit with you. The journey will be well worth it! It is so hard to say goodbye, so I won't. May you rest in peace my dear friend. Know that my love for you will always and forever be here. The memories will keep me going. To the Glasper family, my heart goes out to All of the Glasper's. I am so sorry for your loss.
