  • A close friend gone forever

    Posted on 2/5/14 - by Joe D Rutherford
    We knew Lt. Simpson in high school and after as "Butch". He didn't respond to "Morris" too well.
    Butch attended Palo Duro High School in Amarillo, TX and graduated in 1961. He was a good man with a great sense of humor and fun.
    Butch looked for adventure and the Army and Viet Nam were available. Unfortunately, he paid the ultimate price and lost his life in 1971.
    For all of us who knew him, he will live forever in our memories.
    He was a good friend who left us much too early in life as many did in "our" war.
  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear 1LT Morris Alfred Simpson, 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 1/9/06 - 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
