We love you
Thank you for your bravery in serving our country
At the age of 19, you left for the Navy
You came back alive, but definitely have scars.
You are such a generous person
How many cars and motorcycles have you
Given to friends and family
Motorcycling was your passion
We remember all the joy rides
You were so full of love
All your family and friends will miss you
But we know, you will not be far
We will always feel you in our hearts.
