  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.

  There beside a grave she stands. A folded flag clutched in her hands. A silent teardrop on her face, her brave young child has entered grace. She does not hear the sermon said, just memories run through her head. The child she held so long ago, the child with faith she let go. The child who heard the nation's call, and in the end gave it all, without fear or thoughts of self, thoughts of freedom and little else. The bugle sounds TAPS in the wind, a mournful sound it does send. A reminder to us all, that for freedom this price was paid, and her sweet young to rest was laid.~~

I can't comprehend just how sad you must feel. For the loss of your beloved Gary who you love so much. This sorrowful time must still feel unreal.

And you look for strength from above.~~I hope from my heart , that your pain will decresase, that your spirit will gain strength again. And I pray your faith will create inner peace.~~ Deepest Sympathy and GOD BLESS. Norma J. Coan Louisville , Ky. U.S.A.

  EAGLES~~To bring down evil, some must fall. To fight for right, some answer the call.~~To help the oppressed, some give up their time, their homes, their loves, they are eagles not doves.~~To keep peace for those in need, some go into wars of just we read.~~To keep us safe, it's soldiers we call. They will all give some and some will give all.~~ Thank you Sgt. Willett for Defending Freedom and America.~~Sydney Meyer Age 10 Louisville, Ky.

  To some I may be nothing more than a distant memory. My life on earth is over now, but do you remember me ? I know, I left without warning, but GOD's work for me was through. Please don't try to stop the thoughts of me, because I never will of you.----Some may hear or speak my name and vanish the thought of me, Why is it now that I am gone no one stops to see, I am closer to you now than I ever was before. I love you all the same and will for ever more.----So, Please don't let my memory slowly fade away....For I'm still inside your heart you see, where I will always stay.----Don't think of me as gone forever because someday we'll meet again. Keep me close inside your heart until GOD tells you when.----You may be there for many years, no one ever knows, so let my memory stay alive as the love inside you grows.

  A life well-lived doesn't end anymore than the music ends, it echoes through time with the whispers of beauty and grace. If we listen, we can hear the encore with our hearts, for the song plays on, just as love lives on. Just remember that grief cannot take away the happiness you shared, that sorrow will fade in time, but love remains forever.

Chloe Coan Louisville Ky. U.S.A. all the way.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL----Faith Meyer Louisville Ky.

  TAPS---TAPS the most beautiful bugle call, known as the most eloquent of all.----Not only to signal the day is done, but to say goodbye, to a comrade, brother, or son.----A melody so hauntingly profound, a piercing yet peaceful sound.---Sounded

over every soldiers grave, to honor those who were so brave.----Rifles are fired in the sky, to say farewell to another American G.I.----Listening to the bugle play, reminds us of the price they had to pay.----The sound is bittersweet, letting go of a hero, to someday again meet.---Nothing is more touching perhaps, or can render emotion like the call of TAPS.----You can hear the bugle weep, where men of valor sleep.----Tears from a bugle fall, as TAPS is played, for the heroes who gave their all.----Edward P. Meyer U.S. Navy Veteran WWII. Louisville Ky. U,S.A.

  Heaven's Heroes~~~Don't cry fo me as I lie in repose, dying for freedom is what I chose.~~~ There isn't any pain or suffering anymore, because I've just walked through Heaven's Door.~~~Here everything is brand new, I'm with my brothers, who were proud to die for freedom too.~~~As you stand before me don't weep, it is just my body that is asleep.~~~My spirit soars high above, where I'm surrounded by Angel's and GOD's love. ~~~Thank you for the respects you pay. I just want you to know, I've gone home today.~~~My job here on earth is done, and my new life in Heaven has just begun.

  Don't think of him as gone away, his journey has just begun, life holds so many facets, this earth is only one. Just think of him as resting from sorrow and tears, in a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days and years. Think of how he must be wishing that you could know today, how nothing but sadness can really pass away. And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched and he was loved so much. ----Thank You Sgt. Willett for giving your all to answer the nation's call. Junior Jennings Jacksonville Fla.

  Beautiful memories are wonderful things, they last till the longest day, they never wear out, never get lost, and can never be given away. To some you may be forgotten, to others a part of the past. But to those who loved you, your memory will always last.--- I am so sorry for the heart-breaking loss that you are forced to endure.

  The tide recedes but leaves bright seashells on the sand, the sun goes down but the gentle warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops & yet in echoes on in sweet refrains...for every joy that passes something beautiful remains. ---May the music play on and on for Sgt. Willett. ---
