Your father and I worked together for many years at Ft Sam Houston and he was a hard worker, team worker, and dedicated to his profession. I always sought and received expert advice from your father which helped me immensely in my endeavors. Your father was a fine person and I know you will miss him so much. May God be with you always.

Stephanie, I am so sorry for your loss of your Dad. You were so close and he loved you so much. He always had you & Jack first and foremost in his heart. I hope your days ahead will be filled only with all of the wonderful memories that only you two shared. And I know that Jack, in his heart, will always have his "Howdy". I love you and am thinking of you everyday.
