    Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Especially when I don't untie my shoes before taken them off. Rembember how dad use to yell at you?
    I read a tribute to you from a classmate when you were living in Kalamazoo, MI
    I am contemplating contacting this man. He said so many nice things about you that made me understand the how you felt when you came to live with us as are uncle when grandmother Joy died. How lonely and lost you must have felt. I am truly sorry I wasn't old enought to understand. I use to have dreams every night about you coming to my work place in crutches, wheelchair etc. I surpose you were trying to tell me you were ok. Remember I Love You and miss you
    Thanks for letting me learn how to walk in your baby shoes even though you were only 13 days older than me. I'll never forget how you hitched hiked home for my graduation.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit
