Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard Him call. I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay that day, to laugh, to love, to work or play. Task undone must stay that way. I found peace at the close of the day. If my parting left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with time of sorrow. I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much Good friends, good times, a loved one touched. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, but don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and share with me. God wanted me now, He set me free!" (Author Unknown)

TRIBUTE TO A LOCAL HERO
Morris Alfred Whitehead, with all the ceremonies and speeches being made at this time in observance for the Memorial Day holiday, it troubles me to see that there are those, such as you, from our area without a tribute on this page. Perhaps your friends and relatives aren't aware that this opportunity is here for them. I haven't known about it very long myself. Now that I do, I feel compelled to say, "Thank you" and leave my own salute to YOU, a true American Hero.

Morris is buried at Roselawn Burial Park in Martinsville, VA. PH
"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you....and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.....Be not ashamed to say you loved them....
Take what they have left and what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own....And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind...."
Quote from a letter home by Maj. Michael Davis O'Donnell
KIA 24 March 1970. Distinguished Flying Cross: Shot down and Killed while attempting to rescue 8 fellow soldiers surrounded by attacking enemy forces.
We Nam Brothers pause to give a backward glance, and post this remembrance to you, one of the gentle heroes lost to the War in Vietnam:
Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop your steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.
From your Nam-Band-Of-Brothers

Wars are times of tribulations, trials, and victories. Many people fear war and fighting for the United States. I thank you for not being one of these people. You stepped up to the challenge and defended our country. Thank you for protecting the United States. God bless you. I am a Gridley High School student that is posting remembrances for a project. I live in and attend high school in Gridley, Illinois.
A True Hero
Leaving behind your family, friends, and personal belongings, you chose to make the ultimate sacrifice. Being part of the Gridley High School Posting Project, it is our goal for all veterans who lost their life, to have a remembrance posted. You paid the price for our freedom and us. You are truly a hero in my eyes. God bless you always.
