I'm thankful for the time I met him in his police car while driving on the road I live on, in New Bern. I looked over at the car and saw him greet me with a smile. So young, and nice. I'm sorry this happened to him. His good works will not be forgotten. It makes me stronger to know he was here in this town. I have a son who I would like for him to know now, he was 9 years old. He is a very good role model and still needed with others so young that suffered hardship in this world. I loved the song selected by his mom "O Sweet Boy of Mine," for this was so true of my own, as well. God Bless his whole family, and more special works in Heaven.

From a Vietnam era veteran of the Womens Army Corps. What a wonderful young man and patriot. Beautiful pictures of the family. All Americans should be very proud of the young man. May God Bless You. Joan Masterman, Maine
