A Time of Saddness

I'm going be gone until Saturday or Sunday, as I will be attending a funeral. My wife's brother George L. Holloway died suddenly last week.

He and I were in the Nam together in 1970 (he was in the Brown Water Navy and was a Crew Chief). He was only 66 years-old. It seems too many people, friends and family, are dying off lately. It's one of the drawbacks of getting older as you watch people in your own age group pass away!

Last year, while he was living in Humboldt County, he went to the North Coast Stand Down, and had a great time meeting other veterans. He talked about it for months afterward. His funeral is in Tacoma Washington.

Rest-in-Peace, old war buddy, and brother-in-law. We're all going to miss you.

I'll be praying for you and Shirley. Take care, Dave.
