      Thanks everyone. Appreciate the thoughts/prayers/condolences.
      We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

        SS, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. As one fellow VietNam vet to another I can only paste the poem High Flight to a brother in the Air Force who has past .
        It's most appropriate I think.

        "Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
        And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
        Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds -
        and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of -
        wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence.
        Hovering there I've chased the shouting wind along
        and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air.
        "Up, up the long delirious burning blue
        I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
        where never lark, or even eagle, flew;
        and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
        the high untrespassed sanctity of space,
        put out my hand and touched the face of God."

        +1 Sorry for your loss.
