R.I.P. cousin, I salute you & thank you for the ultimate sacrifice, you gave to protect us all!

If i could ask for one Aday more, i'd ask for you... if i could've ask for one Aday less, i'd have asked that you not be taken. Whatever wrongs you commited, i've surely done more or something equally as awful. Whatever good that you shared, i've surely shared less than i might've. If i could here, now raise the dead, i'd raise you to praise you and thank you for all Joys that you nurtured, all kindness imparted...and, quoting some Scripture, i'd remind you, by quoting, ''ALL IS FORGIVEN'' and by telling to any who listen, ''JUDGE NOT'' for we each have some value, and we each make mistakes... sometimes drastic, or even on purpose. As i stand, at i call to the Cosmos, ''KEEP BLOOMING! WHEREVER YOU ARE, KEEP GROWING AND LEARNING...AND, IF EVER YOU CAN, COME BACK FOR A VISIT, AND MAYBE BRING WINGS...'' For the child you were and the man you became, and for me... i sure need them. At 17West 111

A good friend of mine. He lived down the street from me in Maricopa. We went to school together and he left one year before me. He was the type of person that you felt proud to call him your friend.

Your Angel Day
On this your angel day I humbly give thanks for your service and sacrifice and with honor I leave you this poem . . .

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die

Thank You
Dear Sir,
I am a senior at Gridley High School in Gridley, IL and my Consumer Economics class is posting remembrances for courageous soldiers like you who perished during the Vietnam War. Thank you for your gift of liberty to our country. You are the reason the United States is the great nation that it is today. You will never be forgotten.
