  A.S.N.F.

Not only serving as a constant reminder that A Soldier NEVER Forgets, be it one of his own, the courage and Sacrifice, the honor and endurance it took to get us to where we were, or the dreams and goals.

But let it serve as something more than that my brother, my blessing, My Guardian Angel. Just know, that until we meet again, I REMEMBER!

A STRAUGHTER NEVER FORGETS!

  I will NEVER forget you Matthew. You were more than a "Mo. guardsman" who died in Iraq. I loved you from the day you were born and I will love you till the day I die. I miss you more than life itself and pray every day for you. Your life and your achievements as well as all you have given up for our freedom will never be forgotten. My God keep you in his loving arms until we are united again. I love you and miss you Matthew Francis Conrad Price-Straughter Sr. All my love, Mom

  From the moment I met you, your smile lit up the room. It has been many years, but I still remember the great times we all had together. You will always be dear to my heart. Not many know how special you were to me and my family. You will be missed dearly and remembered forever. I know in my heart that you and good old Duke are in heaven watching over the ones you left behind and know we will see you again beyond the Pearly Gates of Heaven. May God watch over you and the family. ~Tami~

  Your sacrifice will remain in our hearts for a lifetime,

with intense gratitude. May God bless you and your family.

Rest Safely and Securely in God's Loving Arms.

We cherish too, the Poppy red

That grows on fields where valor led,

It seems to signal to the skies

That blood of heros never dies.
