This, afternoon, I attended Don Weaver's memorial service at the Bay Pines National Cemetary. It was a very fitting memorial to a deceased brother soldier. There was taps, the firing of a salute, the flag presentation, etc. One of Don's sons talked about Don and his life and how much he meant to so many. Judy said Don very much wanted to attend the CIDAA meeting in Tampa, knowing it would be his last. But God took him home early.
RIP Donald Weaver.

It is with great sorrow that I have to report the passing of CW4 (Ret) Donald H. Weaver. Donís wife, Judy, notified me tonight (25 Oct 09), that Don lost his battle to lung cancer on Wednesday, 21 Oct 09, at the age of 79. His remains will be cremated and he will be laid to rest at the Bay Pines Veterans Memorial Park, St. Petersburg, FL. A Memorial Service will be held on 27 Nov 09. More information will be posted as soon as I receive it.
Don was the Commander of the 65th MP Det (CI), during the majority of my assignment to that Unit and during several months of William Fitzpatrickís time at the 65th. I can truthfully say that Don was one of the best commanders I had during my years with CID, and he was a wonderful human being, he will be missed very much by those who were his friends and those who knew him. May he rest in Peace. (Herb Marlow)
