And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.
Remembering An American Hero
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
a great kid
TJ was a total delight. He had a sense of humor that was so fantastic. I have a very poor auditory memory, yet even after all these years, I still remember a joke he told us (his family and me) in the family room of his home. "How do you make an elephant fly? Well, you start with a zipper ttthhhiiisss long." I can still see him telling his joke, and the twinkle in his eye as he watched all of us laugh. You'll always be missed and loved.
