"Joe, we got to the gulf on January 22nd, and my parents emailed me that night and told me what had happened. It's something I still can't believe. There were some rough days there, but I know you were right there helping me through. We've known each other for more years than I can count, Altar boys together, right on in to HS Football. You were a damn good friend, and I was proud to have known you. Fair winds and following seas bro."OS2 J.M. Urbano of CGC Munro (Whec-724)
