Remembering my husband's "brother",
A scholar who became a Marine
You are gone but not forgotten.
Greg, I wish I had had been given the chance to know
With love from a sister you should have had,
I grew up in Simi Valley and although I did not know you, I want you to know that your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Thank you for your service to our nation, and thank you for being a true patriot.
Craig L. Wells
