I Remember You

Willie,I remember you from Utica High School.I was a sophomore in 1964
and thought I was oh so cool for "knowing" an upper classman.How carefree we
were then.I don't remember if you were the first to lose your young life in Vietnam,from Utica,but you weren't the last.I'm sorry my life had no challanges
at that time that I could not give any more credance to the "war" then I did.When
you were killed in 1997 I was getting married that June. I do remember hearing about your death,long after the fact.to long after to attend your funeral. I am sorry
that you had no other "remembrances" here as i know you were loved and
remembered by many. Your death was a topic at the "A" with many wondering who was "going" next and would "be" next. We were all getting scared by then. It
seemed we had relly got ourselves into a "war ". Thanks for your sweet smile and
fond memories and the gift of your precious life and death for this country. I'm
a grandmother now and appreciate even more what you gave and what you missed,Willie . Sincerely Chris Rasico Schroeder,fellow classmate
Utica High School
Utica MI.
