I am saddened to hear of the passing of one of Americas true heroes. I am only one of many who owe him a debt of gratitude for the steps he took to keep this country free. I'm grateful to have known him for over twenty years, and pray that the marvelous God he served comforts and gives peace to those he leaves behind. I can't wait to get to heaven and see my friend. I know he'll be there with a smile on his face and a spring in his step that he lost here many years ago. God Bless Rex and God Bless the USA!
