On a beautiful sunny day in Central Texas, friends and family gathered to pay our respects to our fallen shipmate. The Navy Honor Guard performed to highest of traditions and the TAPPS, made the hair on the back off your neck stand up. Fair well, but not good bye, as we all will meet again, someday. We have the guard now my friend, RIP Senior Chief Michael David Kemp, (10/28/1952-6/28/2023).

Was deeply saddened to learn of Mike's passing. My deepest condolences to the family. Seems like only yesterday that I first met AT2 Kemp in Guam.
