Mr. DiLella

20080216, 07

Tuesday, 12 February, 2008 passed and so has one of the few, the finest, with family gathered. The band of brothers salutes the passing of one always faithful.

A temporary cloud hangs about those that remain, yet this Knowing lifts our mourning. We know that he served his God, his Corps, his Love, his country, his family and his life with diligence and honor. This celebrated human being—a man; This man—a fine Marine.

Thank you for the memories, Mr. DiLella.

Thanks for the dinners at the Italian Club.

Thanks for my good friend Joe.
