Thoughts on Cmdr. Duane Wolfe

My father-in-law offered these thoughts on Duane's service to his country and Lord:
To a fallen soldier, first of the Lord, secondly of his country. Thank you Duane for your friendship and hospitality at the Los Osos/Cayucos spiritual gatherings of God's Family in this beautiful area; but especially thank you for your sacrifices throughout your career and finally for this ultimate final sacrifice. We thank all our fallen heros (Lalo Enriquez).
This passage comes to mind every time I attend a funeral:
A good name is better than precious ointment,
And the day of death than the day of one’s birth;
Better to go to the house of mourning
Than to go to the house of feasting,
For that is the end of all men;
And the living will take it to heart (Ecclesiastes 7:1-2)
