    Richard and I met while he was a Marine on Guam. We had so many fun times sneaking me in to the club so that we could dance. He was the one that taught me how to cha cha, and taught him how to salsa. He had the most beautiful eyes and a killer smile that I will never forget. Sleep easy, Marine. Your watch is over. I can see you dancing above us, surrounded by your loved ones and friends. May God have forgiven your sins and embraced you into paradise. I love you, sweet Richard. Until we meet again...❤️
