Smitty, you were the first NCO that I worked with at Clark AB, so very long ago. You taught me to be a leader. I looked for you and Roger for many many years. You stood with me at my wedding, we drank the Philippines dry. This is not how I expected to find you. Rest in honored peace my brother. We will meet again in Gods time.

My Good Friend and Divemaster. We had a lot of great adventures together. RIP.
I worked with Carl for a number of years at Scott AFB. He was a good friend and he will be missed. My condolences go out to his family.
