The World Lost a Hero Today

My Great-Uncle Wayne passed away early this morning.  His entire life was defined by a draft notice for the Vietnam War, when he was little more than a kid himself.  The horrors he saw there haunted him every day, yet he was a happy, friendly guy to all he met.  I will forever picture him with his long grey hair and beard, walking across my grandmother's farm, where he lived, laughing and looking every bit the cowboy.

I love you, Wayne.  Enjoy Heaven.  I'm sure it will never be the same again, with you there.
