    Dear Matthew,
    You Have Not Been Forgotten!

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear SSGT Matthew Mark Renner, 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.

    With respect, Sir

  • Do not stand at my grave and weep

    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    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

  • To My Beloved Cousin on Memerial Day

    Posted on 5/31/04 - by Jill Ann
    Dear Matty,
    We miss you very much and were remembering you just last weekend at a family reunion in Dallas. You would have been so proud to see all of the next generation of the Sikora family. We were celebrating Jeff's oldest daughter, ME's, graduation from college.

    You were taken from us far too early and on this memorial day I wanted to make sure that you knew how much you are missed.

    Dear Matthew,
    I am a student from Gridley, Illinois and I am doing a Gridley High School Posting Project. This involves remembering those who gave their life during the Vietnam War. The price you paid will always be remembered. Thank you for helping to let freedom reign. May God bless you and your family.
