You are missed by all, Danny. Your laughter, kindness, and love of life were not taken in the jungles of Vietnam. Those who love you have not allowed that to happen. You live on in our hearts and minds.

You left behind a mother, father (both have joined you in heaven), sister, three half-sisters, and a fianc´┐Że. When you went away you had plans like the rest of us grunts. All we wanted was to do our jobs, come home to our white houses on our tree lined streets, and take up where we left off. Who would have known the hand of fate would take you and leave me? Perhaps heaven needed you.

Those of us who came home were forever changed. The houses were not as white, and the trees didn't look the same. Taking up where we left off was not an option. Sometimes, I thought you were the lucky one.

I suspect heaven will need me eventually, and when it does, we will meet again and talk of old times (I hope heaven has footballs). One day, the two of us, along with Galen, will stand at the gate and pull duty together, welcoming our brethren into the fold.

Semper Fi,

Larry Aurence Hancock, USMC 1966-67
