In Memory

I should like to dedicate this posting to Peter G, who graduated Marine Corps boot camp with me.  After my short spell of military service, I went on to enjoy all the benefits of civilian life– love and marriage, rock concerts, forest hikes, great restaurants, foreign travels, wild parties, dogs and cats.  As for Pete, eight months after boot camp, he was killed in a firefight.  He was only 19.  Now, looking at his photograph, I am deeply saddened and lost for any further words.  Peace, brother.

Yesterday, our cat Amber passed away.  Growing up with 3 dogs and 3 other cats, she was part of our family for 21½ years.  She’s in Pet Heaven now, frolicking with her canine and feline brothers and sisters.
