    Dearest John Charles,

    As one of your Mom’s old friends from Reston, I was privileged to watch you grow and thrive. I always loved your indomitable spirit and remember well the last time I saw you as you readied to go to the Gulf. Your optimism then, and now, will see you through. I love your Mom, and I love you. Your lady and baby will give you strength. I send all the good energy I can muster from my quarter here in Virginia.

    Much love,

    Thinking about you man. I know its been years since we last saw each other but I do think of you often and keep that strong mind. Whether you know it or not you helped me become the person I am today. You always struck me as a determined guy and don’t lose that. Plus your in Oregon. Probably no place more beautiful in this country and the love there is strong.
