I would like to give my heart felt condolence to the MC Bride family. When I first meet Whitey I did not know a lot about what men were like that served in the Navy, and all the challenges that they went through. I would listen to stories that Whitey would talk about, and I came to know a man that was incredibility intelligent, wise, humble, loving, kind, compassionate, humorous, and a true gentleman. I once told Whitey that his wife was so lucky to have him. Whitey's reply, I was the lucky one. I can honestly say that when God made Whitey he broke the mold. I feel very proud, honored, and privileged to have meet such a amazing man that I have come to know as a true legend. May your golden wings always fly over us. With loving thoughts, God Bless.
