Condolences for Dennis Garfield Tompkins

Vi, un cambio en su persona, como de la noche al dia, era un cambio espiritual, interior. En sus ultimos momentos, vi, a Dios en sus ojos, una paz, que inindaba la habitacion entera. Se fue en silencio. Es para mi, un ejemplo, de como, Dios transforma a las personas en incienso agradable que se eleva al cielo. Yo tengo fe, que? igual que? Dios lo transformo a el?, tambien me transforme a mi. Dios vio su corazon grande y humano para todos, por eso perdono todos sus pecados. el dejo un sitio, que?, nadie puede ocupar, nadie. Un hombre que?, ha sufrido mucho, entre otras cosas, la muerte de victimas inocentes en Bietnan. Ha sido, un privilegio, para mi, ver la grandeza y la misericordia de Dios, reflejada en los ojos limpios de Dennis Tompkins, Hijo de DIOS

I’m so sorry to see you take your final cruise, shipmate! After years at the Naval Reserve Center, Great Lakes, IL, and re-meeting you again in the room of New Day Group, it’s hard to say goodbye to a friend. Fair winds and following seas, until we meet again!

Dennis was a man with a great sense of humor. I served with him onboard the mighty USS Clark. We attended several events together on the clark and I enjoyed his company. Rest in Peace Boats.....I have the watch.
