Neighbor & fellow veteran
BOB FAIR
American Legion Post 135, Gloucester City NJ

I was a neighbor of Michael's when he was growing up. A nice kid, shy with red hair, and big blue eyes with the world in front of him. Michael gave his life for his country. What higher price can we pay for patriotism. May God hold Michael in the palms of his hands and God bless him, and his family. A fellow veteran, and neighbor.
