Remembering An American Hero
Posted on 12/8/13 – by Curt Carter email@example.com
Dear SGT Ralph Gerald Dunn, sir
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
for the heros on this day

you all sacrificed the same day as my fiance Robert David Rogers for you each a poem:
How often you will have me near you when wood smoke drifts across the wind, or the sky darkens in a summer storm – think of me in the days to come, as I am thinking of you this minute, not gone or alone or dead, but part of the earth beneath you, part of the air around you, part of the heart that must not be lonely.

I will never forget you or the other team members from my first team. The rubbing of your name from the wall hangs in my office for me to see every day. Rest in peace my friend.
NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER
Posted on 10/24/03 – by Chris Spencer firstname.lastname@example.org
It is said a man hasn’t died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.

You are not forgotten and nor will you ever be for the blood, sweat, and tears you shed. You are a true hero who fought and died for our country and I just wanted to say, “Thank you.” God bless.
