  • Dear Cousin...

    You are not forgotten dear cousin Jimmy. I believe I received one of your last letters home before dying. I was in the 9th grade and recall getting off the school bus and hearing the sad news from my mom, your aunt. You had such promise and you were gone too soon. You are not forgotten

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/24/13 - by Curt Carter
    Dear CPL Ronald James Revis, 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
  • Do not stand at my grave and weep

    Posted on 11/23/05 - by Bob Ross
    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
