Morrison, 26, and another member of the 1544th Transportation Company, Spc. Charles Lamb, 23, were killed Sept. 5 in a mortar attack on their base near Baghdad. Fifteen other soldiers from the Paris-based unit were injured.

  To the living I am gone

To the sorrowful I will never return

To the angry I was cheated

But to the happy I am at peace

And to the faithful I have never left

I can not speak but I can listen

I can not be seen but I can be heard

So as you stand upon the shore

Gazing at the beautiful sea

Remember me

As you look in awe at a mighty forest

And its grand majesty

Remember me

Remember me in your heart

In your thoughts

And your memories of the times we loved

The times we cried

The battle I fought

And the times we laughed

For if you always think of me

I will have never gone.

  You may have thought I didn't see, or that I hadn't heard life lessons that you taught me, but I got every word.~~Perhaps you thought I missed it all, and that we'd grow apart, but Shawna, I picked up everything, it's written on my heart.~~Without you Shawna, I wouldn't be the person I am today; you built a strong foundation no one can take away. ~~

You were a wonderful and wise friend to so many of us. You will never be forgotten.

  My Most Beloved Family and Friends, Think of me and know I am with you, think of me and smile.

Think of me and knowing that our parting is only for awhile.

On the days that you feel so desperate to see my smiling face, just belive in your heart I am with you and that I am in a beautiful place.

So think of me and remember all of the memories in your heart, and believe and know that it is true, we are never really apart.~~Love forever Shawna

  I am sorry for your loss. Shawna is a beautiful Angel. They come into our lives for just a short time and leave us with footprints on our hearts that are deep and lasting. They love us with a love that is sent from GOD and teach us what true, unconditional and pure love is. May the days be short until you meet your Angel again.

  I can dream. There's no fairy godmother to make my wish come true. No genie in a bottle to bring me to you. No prayer on a fallen star. No magic potion in a jar. But I can dream and when I do, I dream that I'm there with you.

  What can I say we have so many memories...so many things to look back on. I learned so much from you, I gained so much. I loved the way you made me laugh, I hated the way you made me cry, but what I hated most of of all is when we had to say good-bye.

Adam D. Jones

Happy Birthday, Adam. You are missed so much every minute of everyday! XOXO ~143~ You will forever be in my heart and on my mind. Love always, Tammy


Laurie Cobb

She was my 3rd and 5th grade teacher. Today I'm 32 and still think about her. She was the best teacher ever. From her hair children stories to her bubbly happiness and kindness she spread. I'll never forget her. She was the teacher who had lunch with the kids in her classroom so everyone had someone to be with. She made my school experience amazing. I will never forget her.. I love you Mrs. Cobb. Sincerely, Forever in my thoughts, Alyssa (Viau) Capone


Larry E Polley Jr

SPC Polley died almost two decades ago so I don't know if this message will be seen. In honor of Memorial Day, my agency hands out cards with names of those who have fallen. This year, 2023, I received the card for SPC Polley and was inspired to look up more on him. I am thankful for his service and sacrifice. My condolences to his family. He is not forgotten.


Paul C. Holter III

Miss you brother


Alex D Gonzalez

Love you and miss you always. Since you been gone it has been hard for everyone. I know you loved what you did, and I want to thank you for our freedom. If I can have you back home and safe living your life man everything would be different. No matter how much money they would offer me I would rather have you alive and home. Money comes and go so it's not worth losing you.


Christopher D Young

hello my name is Jesus Vega I would like to give my condolences to Christopher's family and friends, I served with him in Iraq and slept in the same quarters. I have many fond memories of him. I have never forgotten his sacrifice. I would like to share that the greatest memory I had of Chris is that he would speak highly of his mom and how much she meant to him. Chris was a strong minded person and looked out for other. He was kind and friendly the he made friends with everyone. Chris was truly a great man! I sincerely apologize for not sharing sooner. but would like to express that Chris's memory will never be forgotten! though he is not with us he will always be in spirit! If this message gets to Christopher's mother I she could know she raised a great man and for that I thank you.

James David Parker

I knew James David Parker as "Dave" when he lived in Solon Ohio. We met when I moved into town from out of state. He and his group of friends were a year or two older than me. Dave was a bright beacon of hope and joy to me. I was an unsure young man in a strange place. Dave introduced me to many people and ensured his friends always saved me a seat in the lunchroom. I have fond memories of him and his friends during that time. I doubt so many people would have been as wonderful toward me without Dave's incredible kindness. I've never forgotten his kindness. I hope to be able to pay it forward someday.


Tyler O. Griffin

Condolences to the family. Freedom is not free, it cost this man's life. Thank you is not enough. Grieving is not enough for your loss though it is all we have, the Sandoval Family
