Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/15/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear CPL John Richard W Constien, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
A FOND MEMORYPosted on 11/14/13 - by HELEN M. PIPKINJohn, it's getting cold here & getting close to Thanksgiving. Brings thoughts from this time of year, at the farm. You were so smooth pulling off all that made your eyes twinkle. ;-) You served at the pleasure of the President. So much honor, intelligence, integrity. You were part of a very elite profession; that affords all of us the rights we enjoy. Even so, it was a huge unfair lost. You had so much more to offer this world. God spared you from any more earthy life. I'll never understand why. I've quit asking. Now you proudly guard the gates of heaven. Not so much longer before I'll see you there. Life has been lonely without you. You were an excellent Marine. You are irreplaceable by my side. I WILL FOREVER REMEMBER, LOVE, & HONOR THE GREAT MAN YOU WERE. Semper FiMORE
