We Remember

We called you Ray and I want you to know how much you have been and are missed by your family every day! I remember a younger brother who was a beautiful blonde haired blue eyed full of life little boy. One day you ran thru the kitchen, when you were about 5-6 years old, and said to mother "I'm going to heaven when I'm 19" (you did). You just kept running and you were so very, very happy. I remember a boy/young man who played games on his siblings and made the family laugh and happy.

I wish you could have met my kids, Lisa and Donnie and all of your niece's and nephew's. But I know you are happily keeping the heavens happy.

Your loving sister,
Angie

Thank You

I am a senior in high school at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois. My teacher served in the Vietnam War and was shocked at the few number of remembrances there were for all these people who gave their lives. I felt this assignment (Gridley High School Posting Project) to be uplifting to the family members of those who lost their lives. The men/women are honorable and so selflessly fought for the country they believed in and saw potential in. These amazing people served their country in a time of need and I wanted to express my gratitude and admiration.
