In Memoriam

Today, like everyday since 5 September 2007, we continue to miss you more and more. You are never far from our thoughts, actions, or words. As your Mother, I have often wondered what I could have done differently to help change the course of events. As your Mother, I can't help but think of what you might have become. As your Mother, I am so proud of my son. I pray that your sweet soul awaits me, your family, and friends in Heaven. Dane, we honor your service today and everyday. We are so grateful to have had someone like you in our lives. Thank you for choosing me to be your Mom. We'll see you on the High Ground......Hooah! Love, Mom, Larry, Grant, & Quinn
