Matchstick Gun

I remember a time when we were kids and were playing with matchstick guns, you remember the homemade kind that strikes a match as it shoots, anyway you were wearing some kind of nylon type of shirt that melts when burned. When we finally sat down under the weeping willow tree in your front yard, you had like a million little holes in your shirt, it was pretty funny at the time since you were like 7 years older than me. Thank you Eddie, my Friend, you will never be forgotten.

The Ruby Ring

We were so young back then and it seems so long ago. Its been 31 years since you died. I was 17. I am 48 years old now. I still have the letters you wrote me. I still have the engagement ring you gave me. Sometimes I wear it to remind me of how precious life can be. You gave your life for your country and this changed my life forever. I am a grandmother now. I have been to the Vietnam Memorial and touched your name engraved there. Your mother died recently and I went to her funeral. The last time I saw your sisters was at your funeral, 31 years ago. I asked them if they had many things of yours to remember you by and they both said "no", so I gave them your ruby ring, our "going steady" ring. Theydecided to bury your mother with it, because she had often wondered what happened to the ring. Your sisters said she had talked about the ring weeks before she died. I had kept it all these years, barely able to bring myself to even look at it. When I looked in the casket at your ring on your mother's hand, I felt sadness, but also joy. Your ruby ring shined more brightly than I had ever remembered, and its warmth reflected back into my heart, to the place where your memory will always remain. Peace be with you my brave young soldier...I will never forget you.
Debra (Mattachione) Shull
