We both met in mid ‘83 when we were stationed TAD to the Rifle Range Detachment at CamLejNC. You had a bad crush on me for two months. Someone came up to me in the chow hall and told me. We were married March 9, 1984 and had two boys…Kristofer James in 85 and Mykal Aaron in 90.
You weren’t too happy in your earthly life. I hope you can find peace in the next. ?? Your first love
