  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 song it does send. A reminder to us all, that for freedom, this price was paid, and her sweet young to rest was laid.~~May GOD hold and comfort you tonight and every night for the rest of your life.~~Norma Meyer-Coan, Louisville, Ky.

  The Soldier Poem....I was that which others did not want to be. I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness ....should I fail. I have seen the face of terror; felt the stinging cold of fear; and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love. I have cried, pained, and hoped....but most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgotten. At least someday, I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was....a soldier.~~ I salute you Mr. William R. Neil Jr. for your bravery and ultimate sacrifice for America and Freedom.~~

Stevie Coan, Louisville, Ky.

  Submitted with the Neil Family in mind. Love and Gratitude.....The agony is so great and yet I stand it. Had I not loved so very much. I would not hurt so much. But goodness knows I would not want to diminish that precious love by one fraction of an ounce. I will hurt, and I will be grateful to take the hurt, for it bears witness to the depth of our meanings, and for that I will be eternally grateful.

~~I am sorry for your loss. May you find peace, strength, and love.~~Cora Meyer, Louisville, Ky.

  Think of me as one at rest, for me you should not weep. I have no cares, no troubled thoughts, for now I am asleep.--The living breathing me that was, is now forever still, and time goes on without me as time forever will.--Those of you who liked me, I sincerely thank you all, and those of you that loved me, I thank most of all.--It matters not if time began or if time will ever cease ? I was here, I used it all and now I am at peace.

  A life well-lived doesn't end any more than the music ends, it echoes through with 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.~~Raven Meyer- Coan, Louisville, Ky.
