02 Jun 2007

He was a doctor's son ... he could have taken the easy way out but instead chose to serve our country with honor and dignity. He was my wrestling partner in high school, I never could beat him! A quiet guy, an accomplished writer in his own way. Now, forever young, buried in his hometown, Jamestown N.D. May God give you eternal peace and rest.
