Bill, you are remembered
Oh Bill, I remember your smile, your laugh and enjoyed your letters, from so far away. Sebastopol, was such a tiny town, to come from... a town, that lost so many young, during those terrible years. You remain, a teenager in my memories, with dreams you would never be able, to fulfill. You did your duty, to help the world stay free, fighting, in a country, called Vietnam.... one, we had to find on a map, a name my generation came, to know well. I think of you, often, you, are not forgotten.

 NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER
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

I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER OUR DAYS TOGETHER GROWING UP AND BE THANKFUL THAT OUR FREEDOM IS PERPETUATED BY GUYS LIKE BILLY WHO GAVE EVERYTHING IN ORDER THAT WE MAY ENJOY OUR LIVES TODAY. GOD BLESS TO BILLY AND HIS FAMILY
