St. Louis soldier dies in Afghanistan

KSDK-TV

  Brother.... I miss you. You and your family are and will remain in my prayers.. I feel guilty that I have not mustered up the guts to visit you, but I will when the time is right. I will always remember you as the great friend you were to me, and I learned a lot from you.. the good times will always be remembered and held as some of the most treasured memories I will ever make. Remember, when I meet you up there you still owe me that "near beer" you promised me for my birthday, and I'm holding you to it. Much love!

"Crazy B"

  Holding his family in my thoughts and prayers.

The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,

As strong and living as you used to be,

In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,

And standing there and laughing down at me.

Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,

Because I can no longer see your face,

You have not died, it is not true, instead

You seek adventure in some other place.

That you are round about me, I believe;

I hear you laughing as you used to do,

Yet loving all the things I think of you;

And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?

You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.

That you are round about me, I believe”

I did not know Vincent, but I am remembering

his service and sacrifice. He is my hero. !

Sincerely,

Deb Estep ~ Ohio

  "Vincent". You are such an un-selfish person, you believed in this Grateful Nation, America! You sacrificed your life here on earth to keep us free. I am so proud of you, my thoughts are on you every day God sends however, I want you to know I will not stand at your grave and weep, I know you are not there. you do not sleep, you are a thousand winds that blow, you're diamond glints on snow! When I awake to gentle rain I think abou't you and wonder if you're the soft uplifting rush of quiet birds in circling flight. When I look up at the stars I feel you are that soft star shining at night! For those reasons I willnot cry at your grave Iknow you're not there because you did not die!!!!!! I miss you so much! My Beloved Grandson. I Love You Forevermore. Your "Nanno"
