So sorry to hear about Orus, He was my best buddy when we were in the Marine Corps. How a farm kid of Finnish desent who has a slight Finnish accent could get to be so good friends with A city kid from West Memphis with a southern accent could get to be such good friends is something else but we just hit it off very good. We spent a lot of weekend liberty together and lots of good times together. I'm sure the family and friends will miss him too, He was always such a good buddy to me. God Bless all friends and family at this sad time Jerome (Pete)
