    So sad to hear this! Praying for the family! I loved this man!

  3. He was a patriot. And I salute his service. My prayer was for him to conquer the demons that his service presented him. Those of us not presented with those challenges can only imagine. And I’m sure our imagination would fall short of Mr Kings reality. He never complained, he just came back and lived his life.
