    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on,
    and cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone.
    Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,
    for as long as there is memory, they’ll live on in the heart.

    There is discipline In a soldier you can see it when he walks
    There is honor in a soldier you can hear it when he talks
    There is courage in a soldier you can see it in his eyes.
    There is loyalty in a soldier that he will not compromise.
    There is something in a soldier that makes him stand apart
    There is strength in a soldier that beats in his heart.
    A soldier is not a title any man can be hired to do.
    A soldier is the sole of that man buried deep inside.
    A soldier is always a soldier even when he sleeps.
    It is that oath he took that he forever keeps.

    Today we lay to rest another hero. A hero for serving his country and a hero for everything he stood for. May you rest in peace for your mission is now complete. I salute you.

    I offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends for your loss of another American Hero
