My best to the Schroeder family on this Memorial Day.

If I ever get to Cleveland to visit my Ewerts, Schroeders, etc at the Lutheran Cemetery, I'll stop to visit Augie, too.

Dearest Schroeder Family ~

In my search for my Schroeder relatives, I was shaken to read of Edward's death. Is "Augie" short for August, and possibly the namesake of August Ewert? Edward was also a family name - several of August's grandsons had that name. August, his daughter Elisabeth and her 2nd husband, Gottfried Frederick Schoeder, and many other aunts, uncles, and cousins lie in the Lutheran Cemetery, too; they will all watch over their possible young descendant.

If we are from the same family, I'm stunned that Augie's tragic death has helped me to find you. If we aren't related by family, then we are united in sorrow over the loss of a young US Marine.

You don't know me, but I read your article in the Washington Post about your son. Very moving. I am truly sorry for your loss. Your son sounds like he was a great person.

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 'Auggie', 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.
