You gave all.
Today I sat in a class room like the one that Stevie and I sat in. But I think of the years that have passed since we sat together in class I still miss him he was a special person. I love him and I love his family. Many have now gone to be with him now. I thank him and his family for all he gave and I hope other people will realize just what much we are in debt to these brave young men who died for us. Again thank you. I will never forget you Stevie Dockery.
