    I send my deepest sympathy to the entire family. Always remember the wonderful times that you spent with your loved one. Please find comfort in what the Bible says about the opportunity of seeing our loved ones again under the very best of conditions right here on the earth: 'Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear His voice and come out." (John 5:26, 28, 29)

    A hero has fallen. It is time for us to mourn their passing, secure in the
    knowledge that their service and sacrifice shall not be forgotten. We mourn
    with their family and friends, knowing that they will find peace in the arms
    of the Lord.
    Hero, your watch is done, you can stand down now. We now have the watch.


    POW-MIA's you are not forgotten.

    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.
