    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.

    I am honored to be able to render Honors & Condolences for the passing of this American Hero, Raymond C. Snapp, KIA, World War II Veteran, United States Marine Corps. I offer my condolences to his family and friends.

    MARINE

    I was that which others did not want to be.
    I went where others feared to go and did what others failed to do.
    I asked nothing from those who gave
    Nothing and reluctantly accepted the
    Thought of eternal loneliness... should I fail.

    I have seen the face of terror;
    Felt the stinging cold of fear;
    And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love.
    I have cried, pained, and hoped... but most of all,
    I have lived times others would say were best forgotten.
    At least I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was...
