To Those I Loved And To Those Who Loved Me:

When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears, Be thankful for our beautiful years.

I gave to you my love, you can only guess, how much you gave to me in happiness,
I thank you for the love you each have shown, But now it's time I traveled alone.

So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must. Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a time that we must part, So, bless the memories within your heart.

I won't be far away, for life goes on, So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near, All my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and say, "Welcome Home."

Thank you our Fallen Hero. Good Bless you and your family for allowing you to sacrifice yourself for our Freedom. You will not be forgotten. "We're Only on Earth for a Little While, so Live, Life to the Fullest and Carry a Smile" A1C Elizabeth Jacobson KIA 9/28/2005.

Today I saw a photo of your son's bedroom in "The Shrine Down The Hall." I was immediately impressed by its neatness and order, his picture by the doorway, his encyclopedias, family photos - everything precisely in its place awaiting his return. I cried as if I had known your son. The world is a lesser place in which to live without this handsome, popular young man. God bless you.

To the Anderson Family-
I am a classmate of Carletta. I wanted to tell you that since Carl's passing, I have thought of you all often and I am continually praying for the Lord to strengthen you. The body of Christ is amazing in that way. Thank God for your lives and the life of your son. His life is a true inspiration as is yours. Blessings and Peace to you

Holding you all 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 Carl, but I am remembering
his service. He is my hero. !

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

Wow, I can't believe it has been 4 years since that night. I remember that horribly hot day that we first landed in Iraq, the unit we were replacing had just lost one of their own but we all thought that wouldn’t happen to us; we were trained and prepared, and we all were suppose to come home… I had never felt so many emotions all at once when they told us. I was so angry and felt incredibly useless. It was so final. You were gone and there was nothing we could do. We wanted to get our team together to go out on the road and bring your team back to base but they wouldn’t let us. They said it was too dangerous and we couldn’t afford anymore casualties. We lost one of our brothers that night and the hole in my heart for you is still there. When I went back to Iraq in 2006, I drove the road that you were on that dreadful night and I thought of you. I think about you and your family and I pray for you all often. I’m leaving next week for my third tour of convoy duty and I know you’ll be watching over us as we travel those roads. Always in my thoughts and prayers, God bless you, my brother in arms.
