    Dear SP4 Richard Phillip Robbley, 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 12/9/05 - 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

  • You Will Always Be Remembered

    Dear Richard,
    I am a student at Gridley High School in Gridley Illinois that is doing a project
    that involves writing remembrances for those who sacrificed their lives during the
    Vietnam War. The cost of freedom has never been cheap or inexpensive. It has cost the
    blood and lives of hundreds and thousands of Americans over the course of our history.
    Any person that has helped defend our country will always be remembered as a hero.
    Even though we have never met, I would like to thank you for defending our country’s
    freedom. You will always be remembered as a hero in my heart. May God bless you and
    your family.
