Your friend in life and in the Corps.
Ron, as I said in March I am back here to talk to you again. I have your picture here in front of me and it's like yesterday that we said goodbye to one another. I shook your hand when we parted so long ago and I sure miss you. The picture I have came from your hometown newspaper and you must have had it taken after you graduated from boot camp. I like the smile you have but I never saw you smile like that at PI but then we never let you smile did we? Sgt Driver is up there with you in Heaven now too. He died in 2004 so you might look him up. He had throat cancer. I think it was from smoking but I'm not sure of that. He got out of the Corps and joined the Army National Guard so give him a little of the dickens from the both of us Ron. I love him like I love you Ron. He and you are my Brothers Ron and always will be. Soon we will be together. When I pass through this thin veil we know as Death I will be there to see and be with you Ron. I know that Heavenly Father has you in His hands and is watching over you. Hang in there my Brother and remember that I love you as only one Marine can love another Marine. No one, unless they are Marines themselves, can understand that. Semper Fidelis my Brother. Larry

I remember you with good thoughts and prayers in my heart
Ron, We never got to say these things to one another due to our circumstances on PI but God knows I wish I had been able to then. We never know what lies ahead of us in life and all we can do is take what happens and do our best with what ever God has planned for us. However long or short that life may be we can only deal with it in the best way we can and that's by trusting in the plan that God has for us. You were a great recruit on PI and I hoped that things were going to turn out ok for all of you. Sgt Tomalka was KIA also so his Plan with God was the same as yours. I pray every night for the both of you. I did last night and that's why I am here today writing to you. Not to soothe my feelings because I can't do that but to in some way to try to tell you how much I feel. I didn't know you had gotten married and I want to tell her somehow how sorry I feel for her loss as well as your loss in the love you both must feel. I also wish I could soothe your parent loss as they must feel so badly at losing a son in war or at anytime. I shook your had at PI when you left and I was crying that morning because I felt that you Marines were my kids then and I still feel that way now. I love you Ron as a son and as a Brother Marine. I will be back to talk to you again Ron. Rest in the peace of God.
