John, since writing this I’ve met quite a few other soldiers and Marines who stumbled across this article and shared their memories of Fr. Rocheford. I know we all miss him and to hear how much he impacted each of us shows the depth of us love and humility. Thank you for sharing and honoring his memory too. He is, indeed, with us.
