Saddened, distraught, heartbroken, shocked. Just a few words of feeling after hearing the news of your passing. So many stories, adventures, and life missed out on. Your aura and personality couldn't help but to make anyone and everyone like you. So thankful to have met you and to have served with you. I will never forget you (I have the scar to prove it lol). Love you brother. Never forgotten. See you on the other side.

Peter Paul was a stand up guy and my favorite cousin. Nobody believed in YOU like Peter Paul believed in you. He saw greatness and potential in everyone he knew. You could tell him the wildest goal in the world and he would say it was doable. I think all who met him was inspired by his tenacity to complete all of his goals. I'm glad that I was able to introduce him to my close friends and they loved him as much as I did. I was looking forward to him bringing Nhan to Sacramento so that I could show them the hospitality he always shows me when I come to San Antonio. Khong Sao, Pete! I'll meet Nhan the next time I go to Vietnam. I'm going to miss his random packages, long phone calls, and his controversial use of facebook. Laaaa you, cuz.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what you are going through. He was a beautiful boy who turned into a handsome man. I never got to meet my cousin but I have followed his journey since he was wounded in Iraq. He was always smiling and looks like the best big brother! As a fellow veteran I have much respect for his service and his ultimate sacrifice. I love you Lynn!

I’ll never forget when we were in San Antonio at the club and having fun. You made the entire group of us laugh. The crazy stories you told bro!! And I’ll never forget when we were at Buffalo Wild Wings and you were being goofy like you always were. Bro, you are missed by so many. I’m so sorry you are no longer here, but I will never forget the few memories we have. The last one where you had me eat mussels for the first time!
