Remembering An American HeroPosted on 12/11/13 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear PFC Ronald Charles Kearsley, 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

REST IN ETERNAL PEACE MY MARINE FRIEND
Loved but not forgottenPosted on 1/12/99 - by Linda A. Scherer email@example.comI was a classmate, friend and former girlfriend. He was frustrating, energetic, fun to be around and very loveable. He drove me nuts and I am sorry that I could not know the wonderful man that he would have become. I think we could have connected and maybe lived a long and happy life together. It was a loss for all of us that knew him but he was doing what he wanted to do and he gave his life for us and our country and I will always love him for that. LAScherer, Sandusky, OHMORE
