I miss you and I will always remember the kindness you gave me when we were little. I loved playing marbles with you and I always knew you let me win, We had fun and I will never forget you.

Fellow  Marine
Well done Marine rest in peace
THE TIME you won your town the race We chaired you through the market-place Man and boy stood cheering by, And home we brought you shoulder-high. To-day, the road all runners come, Shoulder-high we bring you home, And set you at your threshold down, Townsman of a stiller town. Smart lad, to slip betimes away From fields where glory does not stay And early though the laurel grows It withers quicker than the rose. Eyes the shady night has shut Cannot see the record cut, And silence sounds no worse than cheers After earth has stopped the ears: Now you will not swell the rout Of lads that wore their honours out, Runners whom renown outran And the name died before the man. So set, before its echoes fade, The fleet foot on the sill of shade, And hold to the low lintel up The still-defended challenge-cup. And round that early-laurelled head Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead, And find unwithered on its curls The garland briefer than a girl’s. A.E. Housman, "Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you.
I've called your name. You're mine.
Isaiah 43:1 (REN)

Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. "He which hath no stomach to this fight let him depart. But we in it shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother”. Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless You for your Sacrifice!!!

I remember the sweet cute chubby little boy you were. You turned into the most handsome young man.
Your family and your friends honor you for the sacrifice you made for your country. You made your
parents (Troy and Margaret) proud. This cousin, one
of many will alway remember you. I am sorry I didn't
get the oppertunity to have you in my life longer.

Marine, you will not be forgotten as long as there are fellow veterans of the Vietnam War and the FMF. I salute you for your supreme sacrifice and may God bless and keep all of your loved ones.
