In times of deepest sorrow,
When tears may cloud our eyes,
It seems that grief is endless;
But then we realize
That sorrow is the memory
Of a happy yesterday,
And memories live on and on
While sorrows fade away
I am Honored to be the Ride Captain for this fallen Veteran. and hope the verse comforts your family.
