Ssgt Billie Joe Wilson my grandpa (continued)Posted on 3/21/15 - by firstname.lastname@example.orgThis year on February 9th 2015 I was sworn into the service for The United States Marines. I saw that he died on February 9th 1971. Its amazing how that I took his name in honor and going into service, in the same branch he served in, and how everything that i do reflects him. I love you grandpa. I never met you but I love you so much and I promise to make you proud as a Marine.MORE

Remembering An American HeroPosted on 11/16/13 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear SSGT Billie Joe Wilson, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Do not stand at my grave and weepPosted on 12/18/05 - 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
