The picture below is of Sergeant Michael Lopez and I this past weekend at Cowboys Saloon. I gave him a shout out and thanked him for his service this Veterans Day, something that I’ve done the past couple of years. Friday night he stopped by Cowboys and to my surprise he actually thanked me with this Marines hat. I’m so glad I suggested we take a picture together because I will now have this forever.
Another listener contacted me last night to tell me he passed away Sunday night in a car accident. She said how excited he was when he heard me wish the marines a happy birthday on the radio and thought to let me know. I feel that God wanted me to meet this sweet man and my heart hurts for his family and friends. You left your mark with me Sergeant Michael Lopez and no matter what, I know I will forever have a listener in heaven with me every single day. Rest In Peace.
