On March 12, 2016, mom’s best friend passed away. He was a Veteran of the United States Navy. He and I butted heads many times. Just prior to his passing we spoke of our Navy careers, and it was important to us, and we were proud of each other.
He was, in my opinion, like this . . . . .
“Don’t cry for me, now I’m gone.
For I am in the land of song.
There is no pain, there is no fear.
So dry away that silent tear”
