You have been gone a long time now, most of the old crowd is dispersed or even gone now. I just wanted to post that as long as I live, I shall always remember you.

Artie and my best girlfriend Chris were 'steadies' in high school and we often double dated together and often went bowling in South Yonkers. What great times we all had. We were all devastated when Artie died. I still think of Artie often. Rest in Peace my old friend.

I knew Artie from the nieghborhood, he lived nearby. We boweled together some and worked together at the Herald Statesmen Newspaper, where Arties was working when he got drafted. He had a BIG Chevy convertible that we used to double date in. Artie was the kind of guy who would give you the shirt off your back if you needed it. The world was a lessor place because of his loss, just before he left, he kept telling us he was not coming back...we did not believe him...but he was right....Rest in Peace my friend !!!!

MY COUNTRY'S FLAG CRIED the flag bowed it's bars and wept starry tears as it hung at half-mast for a soldier's years. another youth it had called and another youth had died. I stood and i watched as my country's flag cried. it clothed the drab coffin in it's red, white, and blue, silently protecting the contents for the comfort of a few. it brought strength to some, to others, bitter pride. but as mourners filed by, my country's flag cried. as it rode to the field where the soldier was laid away, the flag recalled the pledge that he used to stand and say, but to war he went and to keep that pledge, he tried. as the guns fired their last salute, my country's flag cried. as taps rang out, it was folded with care, for the soldier's soul a chaplin whispered a prayer. he asked god for peace in this world to abide, and in a grieving mother's arms my country's flag cried!
