    Sir, spread those beautiful wings of yours wide now, and fly high, as you have MORE than earned them, and please know that there are many down here who are extremely grateful for your service even now… especially now. I never had the pleasure of meeting you, but just knowing that you are a Marine and watching over us from up there makes me feel even better. For the record, your son, Tom, is pretty top-notch.

    For Mr. Welker’s family: I pray that God wraps His comforting arms around each and every one of you, and carries you through this time… and all of the days to come. May God bless you always.
