Remembering An American HeroPosted on 4/18/16 - by Curt Carter email@example.comDear SGT Elvis Weldon Osborne Jr, 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, Sir
classmates unknownPosted on 11/2/15I did not know Elvis yet he was a classmate of mine. The class of 1970 Bryan Adams High School in Dallas, Texas. The class of 1000 was too big to know everyone yet learning of his death so many years later I feel somehow close to him and at the same time a bit embarrassed to not recognize him. Having had a life to live and now having children older than Elvis was when he left this world I can only be grateful for his sacrifice and to say I am sorry for the way those in our generation treated the soldiers of that time. I hope he knew the Lord God who offers us eternal life through His son Jesus. If he did, then we will have a glorious reunion someday. For now I will just say farewell my unknown friend and that I hope to see you someday Heaven.MORE

Do not stand at my grave and weepPosted on 6/9/05 - by Bob RossDo not stand at my grave and weep.MORE
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
Mary Frye – 1932

In RemembrancePosted on 4/6/03Dear Sir,MORE
I am proud to claim you as a fellow American. As citizens of America we have freedom from a domineering government, and we also stand to help other less fortunate countries to try to obtain that same freedom. I thank you for fighting not for yourself, but for giving of yourself and fighting. I thank you. You are remembered.
