In Respect and Remembrance of Our Fallen Warriors, their Mothers, Fathers, Wives, Children, Grandparents, Loved Ones, Friends, Fellow Troops, and all those Canadians whose hearts and tears lay at your side; I submit:

There are no words that I can place here in this registry that could ever justify or explain the loss of your loved one, friend, or fellow soldier. Please know that my family and I cannot stand idly by, without taking a moment, to express how much our hearts go out to you. There is no greater gift towards the future of our country, our world, our humanity, than the efforts and sacrifices made by our Canadian forces towards making our world a better place. Whatever the politics of the day, whatever the leadership of the moment, our selfless warriors have stepped forth to deploy to meet the needs of our changing world, with honour and an integrity that is unrivalled. We as Canadians truly bow and honour your efforts and sacrifice.

We have fallen on fields of battle
In lands so far from home
We have marched to war in honour
For those who’ve felt alone
We have defended those who couldn’t
And stood between the lines
Of two opposing armies
In this new world in our time
We have stood for those who cannot
For those who are oppressed
Standing shoulder to shoulder
To help others do their best
We have held our line with honour
Fury held at bay
Rebuilding a broken nation
To allow all to have a say
Our sons and daughters moms and dads
Stepped forth to make it so
A gift given for a better world
Such a precious gift you know
Our youth in pride have stepped forth
Do this job as best they can
Lay their life upon the line
Each true Canadians
They will not be forgotten
We can never turn away
They have taught the price of giving
In such an honoured way
For where would our world be then
If we just stood by and watched
Could we look ourselves in the eye
And say it wasn’t lost

Our tears. Our thanks. Our prayers.

With a heavy heart stepping forth
Please forgive me when I say
That I let you down in the past
In not a little way

I did not write to let you know
Just how much I cared
For the sacrifice you’ve given
For so many in despair

You stepped forth and joined our forces
Laid your life upon the line
To bring about a safer world
A new world in our time

Fellow soldiers friends and families
And those you held so dear
Still think of you most everyday
For us others it’s not so clear

We must slow down and take the time
Understand how great the cost
For if not placed in front of us
Can we comprehend the loss

Sometimes we’re just so very shy
Or we don’t know what to say
Or do not want to interfere
Or seem superficial in any way

I can no longer withhold my thoughts
I have to pass them on
For it breaks my heart just thinking of
All those left to carry on

Please know that you are in my prayers
Will be there for years to come
Know that you are in my thoughts
For the efforts you have done

Oh yes there is that special day
To remember not to forget
Those who’ve paid the greatest price
We can never repay this debt


Cpl. Francisco Gomez we knew you not, but our prayers reach out for you, your loved ones, friends, and fellow soldiers. We do, so dearly, thank you and your loved ones for your efforts towards making our world a better place.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life’s routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

(John 15:13 NIV) Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.

I'll see you there my friend.
