What a wonderful surprise, hearing from you. Your letter touched me very deeply. How I wish I could meet you in person. I keep in touch with Doug's brother, Denny, and many of our nieces and nephews and their children. It's so comforting, knowing that Doug's memory will live on, through all of us. I still miss him terribly and I know I always will.
I would consider it an honor if you would allow me to post your letter on "Memoirs From Nam". I began writing Memoirs in Doug's memory to help others, but it's been such a personal blessing. It's helped me more than I ever thought possible. I know Doug's family would love reading your letter, as will the many veterans who often visit and contribute.
Please keep in touch. I thank you most sincerely for taking the time to write to me -- I'm so very proud to know you.
