  • Behold the Empty Place - Written for Donald R Miller by Eugene S Hunt

    "Behold the Empty Place"
    by Eugene S. Hunt

    "I called my God in question
    Lord, how can this thing be?
    To let the wicked woodsman
    Cut down this precious tree
    Thou could have took an older tree
    That wind and time had worn
    Why take this young and perfect one
    That never fruit had borne?"

    On whispering wings of silent thought
    My God then answered me,
    "Who told thee that the Woodsman
    Had harmed our perfect tree?
    I've had this tree transplanted,
    Removed it from thy face
    Look to where the young tree stood
    Behold the empty place.
    Yes, I have land more suited
    For such a wondrous tree
    And one so full of promise
    I wanted close to me."

    This poem, written for Donnie by our Father Eugene S Hunt, who mourned Donnie's loss his entire life, has been shared on several obituaries of other soldiers and also for Mr John Sammartino who died in the 9/11 attack.

    Uncle Donnie, I really wish I had got to meet you. All we (the kids) had were stories and Granny's pictures. My favorite picture I have is Granny at the Tomb of the Unknown, and I know she was thinking of you. The song More Than A Name On
    The Wall was her song about you. Now that she is gone, it my song about her.
    Your Niece, Susan.

    Dear CPL Donald Robert Miller, sir

    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

    Curt Carter
