    RIP my brother. I had no idea you were a fellow Airman (USAF). Always fun to talk with you during smoke-breaks on the back dock at XO and here your “unique” perspective!

    One morning I woke up
    I knew you’d be gone
    Thou witness the quickness
    with which we get along
    Rejoice Rejoice
    We have no choice
    but to carry on
    Rejoice Rejoice
    we have no choice
    but to carry on

    to sing the blues
    you got to pay the dues
