Bless you my friend
I have always treasured the memories of our time serving together at CAP MTT 1-1 in Tam Ky. You were a good friend and I enjoyed your wry and sly sense of humor. I remember the day the villagers brought you a papa san who had cut off his thumb with a banana knife. I was proud that you picked me to assist you in reattaching the thumb. You did a great job with absolutely nothing to work with and somewhere southwest of Tam Ky there is a family that will forever be in your debt. You exemplified the best there was in us. God bless you and keep you.
