    I wish to thank Richard A. Parker, for his service to America during a time when it was unpopular to serve. When your country called, you answered…you served with honor, and now it’s our turn to honor you. Though it is years too late, America now stands ready to offer the respect you so richly deserve. I salute you for your service, and trust that your family will find peace and comfort in the days ahead.

    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. (Psalm 23:1-6)

    Thank you, Richard, for your honorable service to our great Nation during a period when such service was frowned upon by many. It is because of men and women like you that we continue to enjoy our freedom and liberties today. May God welcome you with open arms as you approach the Gates of Heaven.

    May your family and friends find a measure of comfort through His healing and mercy and may they all soon realize that, although no longer with them on this Earth, you continue to watch over them from your place among the Angels.

    Stand at ease, Specialist! Your tour of duty is now complete. May you rest in Honored and Eternal Peace. God Speed, Sir, and Welcome Home.
    Respects,

    The Bible says "Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted." I believe that God will shed his blessings on you at this time. These are times when our Faith is tested the most, and yet it is Faith that will see us through the sorrow.

    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.

    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.
