    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.

    MISSION REPORT:

    Fellow Patriots,

    Todays mission for SSG Thomas King, Brandon Fl/FNC Bushnell Fl. Was remarkable with 52 Patriots standing the flag line to honor this True American Defender of Freedom. Mr King will be Buried side by side with his good friend Mr. Krawl and the service was conducted with their respective urns side by side as well. I was assigned to this mission as an alternate Ride Captain due to “Goofy 2 Sox” becoming ill, however, it is always my honor and privilege to serve as Ride Captain, the display of Honor, Respect and Patriotism shown today makes my heart smile. Thanks to each and every one of you for what you do.

    Job Well Done
    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
