It has been a long time, old friend. I should be there with you, except for the grace of God. Only He knows why. You are forever on my mind. Rest in peace.

A memorial initiated by a friend,
Joe Carpenter

21 Nov 2002

I want the world to know how proud I am
of you and everything you stood for.
But sometimes, Dad ... when I look at
my children and my new baby granddaughter,
Emily, your first great-grandchild ...
just sometimes a little part of me ...
wishes you hadn't been so brave.

Love and Honor from your Proud Daughter.
