My wife and I offer our deepest condolences to the family of an American Hero. His service and sacrifice to our country to preserve our freedom is not and will not be forgotten. I wish him Fair Winds and Following Seas. Your mission here is completed. Rest in peace, we have the watch!

Sailors pray,
for fair winds and a following sea
The smell of salt in the air,
the feel of their skin as it’s touched by the spray
An albatross soaring above,
dolphins in the ship’s wake at play
To witness a work of art that only God can create,
the sunset at the end of day
At night a million stars in the sky,
safe anchorage in an islands lee
When the time comes to die as for all it must,
to awake in Sailors Heaven where nothing ever rusts
And always there would be,
fair winds and a following sea
