Leighton Scott Drisdale

West Point, 1986

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by James White on June 15, 2008:

Leighton, almost 20 years have passed since you left.

I miss you, one day at a time.

Tears still often and unexpectedly spill from my eyes, roll past a clenched jaw, and drip from a trembling chin.

Part of me left with you.

The part of you that remains in my heart inspires me when nothing else will.

I give that to others at every opportunity so they may know you, too.

You showed me much about the love of a friend and brother.

Rest in peace.
