I was thinking about this last night, and had to come leave a message. As today is the 10 year anniversary of Dave leaving us on this earth and going to be with God in heaven for his eternity, 2004 was a hard year for me. I lost my beloved grandmother who was like a 2nd mother to me, on July 31st, and then Dave on Nov 26th. I have several pictures of him through out the house, and as much as I miss him, I know that his parents Momma Hawk and Dad Hawk, and his blood siblings miss him more than I do. And I know that his brothers and sisters in the Corps think of him and miss greatly. A part of our hearts is no longer with us, but up in heaven. I miss getting his emails, I miss his jokes, and his quirky personality. And no matter what kind of a day you were having, he ALWAYS knew how to make you see the silver lining and positive side of things, and to make you laugh and smile. He was always a ray of light when other things were dark and dull. I miss him so very, VERY much, and wish that he were here right now to give me a hug. He gave the very best hugs in the world, and could sometimes express more in a hug, than could ever be expressed with words, and he knew this. Dave, I love you, and I miss you, and will one day be reunited with you in heaven. <3

Prior to deploying the guys were always looking for a place to go to get away from the barracks, to take their minds off of training, and what they were about to go do. My husband and I consistently had the guys over to our house to hang out and cook out. I got to know many of the Marines this way, including Hauck. I remember sitting with him on our back steps enjoying the nice sunny weather and having a pleasant conversation about our babies, music, and piercings. This is the memory that stands out the strongest for me...it's a warm comforting feeling. It was a great day. I highly doubt this was the same day he pierced my tongue, cause that hurt! ;) I'm thankful he was such a brilliant person, and executed the ordeal so well. I'll never forget him, that's for sure! I've got the scar to remind me. <3 Miss you Houck!

Dave was one of my very best friends in this universe. We had known each other for close to 10 years when he passed. He was just one of those people that if you didn't like him or get along with him, it wasn't him. It was you. When I found out he had become a Marine, I thought, 'that's the absolute perfect fit for you'! He made me smile every time I opened my emails from him. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss him. I love and miss him every day. ♡
