Just like that

...and just like that, summer was gone. It still feels a bit like summer, but the leaves have been kissed by Jack Frost and my favorite time of year is here!

Hard to believe summer was just beginning last time I wrote here.
Now I am learning how to rock-climb and simultaneously BBQ'd my first squirrels ever. I hate to say it, but it tastes just like chicken; the squirrels that is.

On a not so light note, tomorrow September 28th will mark another year that passes in loving memory of SSG Jesse N. Davis R.I.P.

You were a fantastic squad-mate and a better friend. Your life was cut far too short, and it is with fond memories that I think back to what once was, and wish it could be again.

Your life was short, but meaningful. You gave laughs to many and tears to a few. You said what you thought and did what needed doing. Everyone's life you came across was better for having met you.

I don't spend a lot of my time in pointless regret, I have made my peace with your passing. I have had my time of grieving. But there will always be an empty place inside that I hold in deep regard for the memory of yesteryear and what once was.

I miss you brother, and we will never forget.
