    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.

    Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dennis Lilly Sr.,Thank you for being one of our greatest heroes. God Bless. And God Bless, The fellow soldiers that stands for us everyday. Thank you for your dedicated service and sacrifice to defend our great nation.



    Final Inspection

    The soldier stood and faced God,
    Which must always come to pass.
    He hoped his shoes were shining.
    Just as brightly as his brass.
    "Step forward now, soldier.
    How shall I deal with you?
    Have you always turned the other cheek?
    To My Church have you been true?"
    The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
    "No, Lord, I guess I ain't.
    Because those of us who carry guns,
    Can't always be a saint.
    I've had to work most Sundays,
    And at times my talk was tough.
    And sometimes I've been violent,
    Because the world is awfully rough.
    But, I never took a penny,
    That wasn't mine to keep....
    Though I worked a lot of overtime.
    When the bills just got too steep.
    And I never passed a cry for help,
    Though at times I shook with fear.
    And sometimes, God, forgive me,
    I've wept unmanly tears.
    I know I don't deserve a place,
    Among the people here.
    They never wanted me around,
    Except to calm their fears.
    If you've a place for me here, Lord.
    It needn't be so grand.
    I never expected or had too much,
    But if you don’t, I’ll understand.
    There was a silence all around the throne,
    Where the saints had often trod.
    As the soldier waited quietly,
    For the judgment of his God.
    "Step forward now, soldier
    you’ve borne your burdens well.
    Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets;
    you’ve done your time in Hell."

    - Paul E. Babb Sr. -

    Riding loud and proud......But standing tall and silent...........for the American Hero.
