Breaking Ground

Last night, a little after 1am, we added the first name. I felt a personal obligation that this individuals name be the first one. He was a friend of my sister Laona and I throughout high school. We rode the same bus every morning, got off at the same stops and sat by each other in the same classes. He was a person who made an impact upon every life he touched. I dont just say this as a generic statement about his life either. He truly was one of those people that you meet and never forget. Even now this is hard for me to write...missed by all.

 Lance Corporal Richard Scott Bailey: 7/10/89 - 4/21/08.
