REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR WILLIAM RAY BLACK
POSTED ON 11.27.2011

If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. William Ray BLACK, USA...who made the ultimate sacrifice!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mi ne...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

A Soldier isn't Gone until he's Forgotten

Billy was a true friend, and although he was a few years older than us young boys in the neighborhood he always took the time to coach us in sports and take us fishing. He left a lasting impression on my life. Although he left us too soon, he will never be forgotten.

" Cover them over with beautiful flowers,
Deck them with garlands,
those brothers of ours,
Lying so silent by night and by day,
They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast,
and their names are engraven on honor's bright crest.”

Gone but Not Forgotten

Billy set a lasting example for us young boy growing up in the rural South during the 1950's. He was a good friend, an excellent athlete and, an outstanding individual. He's made an enduring impression upon our lives. We were blessed to have known him and he will never be forgotten.

"And when our work is done,
Our course on Earth is run,
May it be said, "Well done:
Be thou at peace."
