Hello,
We would like to express our deepest condolences and also let the Wilson Family know that we recently sent Care Packages to American troops in the war zones. Each box carried a dedication sheet that includes the name, service information and a photo of your loved one. We recognize that this is a humble tribute, but we wanted you to know that it is heartfelt and made possible by thousands of like-minded individuals in the youth hockey community and beyond. We will not forget. May God Bless you and keep you strong.
Sincerely,
Charlie Gili & Family

I cried when you passed away
I still cry today
Although I loved dearly
I couldn't make you stay
A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands at rest
God broke my heart to prove
To me he only take the best
I love you so much Le Ron

Yesterday was a bitter-sweet day. I celebrated my daughter's first birthday & I remembered the 5th anniversary of your death..... They say time heals all wounds but does it really? Time goes on yes & we have to learn to cope with the pain, but on my side it doesn't heal the pain. Know that you're missed, but your memory will always live on.
July 07, 2012
PFC Wilson it is that time of year again. I wanted to take a moment to let you know that there isn't one single day that I don't think of you. You will always hold a huge place in my heart. Until the day I die I will continue to honor you by wearing your rememberence bracelet. Every time I look at my wrist I see that smiling face that I wish had not left this earth so early.
July 06, 2012
Today is the 5th Anniversary since you were called home. It seems just like yesterday when I got the news. We miss you so much! It still pains, but we get solace in the fact that you loved what you were doing.
March 13, 2012
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences are with you as you grieve. You will always be remembered Le Ron. God's Blessing to the family!!
February 29, 2012
We will remember the sacrifice of PFC Wilson and send our condolences to his whole family. He was a hero to many of us who lived an Army family life. Remember he is not forgotten and the Savior guards him now. God bless you:)

LeRon,

So much has happened & believe me when I say I have not forgotten you.

On the anniversary of your death this year, I was giving birth to my daughter. At 0415hrs, Kris-Elle Jayla Agard Jasper was born. And despite the fact that I was worn out from 13.5 hrs of labour I still remembered you.

She was really to be born on 09th July-my Mom's b'day, but I guess in a way, you wanteed me to know you're still there :)I told your Dad I took it as no coincidence that Krissy was born on that day......

Now I have your two days to celebrate as my own. Your birthday is my wedding anniversary & as much as the anniversary of your death is still hard, I have Kris-Elle to celebrate as well.

I know you're still up there with the angels, looking down on us each day. Stay strong & continue to watch over us.

Sleep on brave soldier......
July 06, 2011
My baby, today on the fourth anniversary of your passing we remember and observe this day in Loving Memory of you. You will be forever in our hearts, loving son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew and friend. We all miss you and keep you close in heart and mind now and always. The pain is here now just as it was on July 6th 2007 and will be used as a constant reminder of our great loss. Love and remembrance to you my son.

Prayer for Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen
July 07, 2010
My Dearest Le Ron,
Yesterday we observed your third Anniversary Remembrance of that fateful day. How quickly three years have gone by and still I'm at a loss for words to accurately describe the effect of losing you. I think of you EVERYDAY. I will continue to do everything in my capacity to keep the memory of YOU alive.

With loving remembrance,
Mom.

I always think of you Leron, and I strive to be as good a Marine as you were a Soldier. Rest in Peace Leron, I have your scar on my shoulder to always remember you.
November 22, 2009
I know I am late & an excuse is lame so rather I'll ask you to please forgive me.

You're a great big 21 now & I'm sorry not here so we can all enjoy it with you. But what I do know is that everyone you're up there with is knowing the great person you are.

Last Monday morning I took a trip to Memorial Park, & I lit the usual candle & I laid a rose & what never ceases to amaze me is how a candle continues to burn out in the open with the breeze blowing rather strong.

Nevertheless, continue to touch the lives of those around you LeRon & know that you're being loved & missed all at the same time.

Sleep on brave soldier......
November 16, 2009
Today, on the anniversary of your 21st Birthday, as with almost every day, I recall with pride all the great times we had during you brief but eventful life.

November 11, 2009
On Sunday I attended the Memorial Day Parade held here in Trinidad. And though I don't specifically know any one who fought in the war, I attended for you.

I held my head high & let the tears flow freely.

You always continue to amaze me each time I look at your photo......

Today is officially the day we remember persons who have passed on in the war. And though I remember you everyday, just for today I wore you proudly on my heart.

Continue to make us proud up there LeRon.....
November 11, 2009
Thankyou for fighting to protect our country. You are greatly appriciated.
August 19, 2009
Nearly two years later I'm awake in the middle of the night and I find myself feeling the need to find out more about the man who allowed my husband to live. I'm married to the man who was supposed to be driving that humvee. LeRon I never knew you and I've never met you but I can NEVER thank you enough for the sacrifice you made. You made Edwin sit in the back while you took the helm. He survived and is living life to the fullest because of the gift you gave him. Granted its a life full of pain and guilt and regret but he's getting help and getting through it. I feel the need to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can only pray that Edwin and I can live up to your memory. He tattooed your and Sgt. Lamie's name on his arm in memory. Never Forgotten. My love and prayers go out to your family.
July 20, 2009
Today is my special day but I have 2 other people to share this day with, LeRon being one.

I woke up this morning thinking to myself that it was going to be a not-so-great day considering I'd be stuck at school. However, I saw LeRon's pic & I started to smile. & now I'm on top of the world, even though I am stuck at school.

But there is the rest of the day to come & 'WE' are so gonna enjoy it. Birthdays come & birthdays go, but its all about what you make of the day.

& though I'm 4 months ahead of the game, Happy Birthday to us LeRon.
I hope you're taking care of everybody up there & you'll are having a great big celebraton ;)
July 20, 2009
I did not know LeRon. I never met him nor did I hear about him until I was reading the obituary of another fallen soldier and I came across his name. I read a little about how he and several of his friends enlisted at the same time and I thought that was the best buddy system anyone could ever imagine. When I viewed the kind words and saw the pictures of LeRon and his little brother as well as his friends in high school and in the army, I felt like I knew everything about him.

He had a smile that still warms hearts 2 years after his passing. When a person is as loved and missed as much as LeRon, we never understand why God chooses whom He does to make an early journey to Heaven. I believe God chose Leron because he was an angel in disguise and his time on earth was ending, so he had to go back Home to be with his Father.

Although the hardest part of grieving may be over, the heartache remains. I wish I had met you, LeRon. It would have been like having a little brother in the army with me.

Let There Be Peace On Earth

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be
With God as our Father, brothers all are we
Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now
With every step I take let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
July 11, 2009
A prayer for LeRon

Psalm #23 (Crimond)
The Lord Is My Shepherd

The Lord’s my shepherd I shall not want,
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green, He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

My soul He doth restore again
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness.
Even for His own Name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk in
Death’s dark vale
Yet will I fear no ill;
For thou art with me,
And Thy rod and staff me comfort still

My table Thou hast furnished
In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me,
And in God’s house for evermore
My dwelling - place shall be.

LeRon Adrain Wilson - A TRUE SOLDIER


There is Discipline in A Soldier
you can see it when he walks,
There is Honor in A Soldier
you hear it when he talks.



There is Courage in A Soldier
you can see it in his eyes,
There is Loyalty in A Soldier
that he will not compromise.


There is Something in A Soldier
that makes him stand apart,
There is Strength in A Soldier
that beats from his heart.


A Soldier isn't a title any man
can be hired to do,
A Soldier is the soul of that man
buried deep inside of you.


A Soldier's job isn't finished after
an 8 hour day or a 40 hour week,
A Soldier is always A Soldier
even while he sleeps.


A Soldier serves his country first
and his life is left behind,
A Soldier has to sacrifice what
comes first in a civilian's mind.


If you are civilian -
I am saying this to you.....
next time you see A Soldier
remember what they do.




If you are A Soldier -
I am saying this to you.....
Thank God for EVERY SOLDIER
Thank God for what YOU do!

My dearest son:
Yesterday (7/06/09) marked two years since you had to leave us, yet it still pains as much as it did on 7/06/07. You will be in my memory till we meet again, in the meantime I am doing as much as I can to keep your memory alive with everyone else. You're loved and missed so much. You are in my prayers everyday. I Love you.

LeRon 'Battle' Wilson.......

Today marks 2 years since you've left us all to move on to greener pastures..... Some of us have let go while some of us still haven't. What I believe we've done, is learnt to cope with your absence.....

This morning I woke up with you on my mind & it dawned on me that we share a month together. Regardless of the circumstances, the fact remains we do. & I decided that come my day, I'm going to dedicate it to you. I'd've made it another year, but I think I need to do something far greater this than just blow out some candles & have a song sang to me :)

You take it easy up there & know that though you may be gone (physically), you'll NEVER be forgotten.

Keep smiling & keep that twinkle alive LeRon & I shall keep my candle burning for what it's worth......
June 03, 2009
My entry is late, but better late than never I say.......

Memorial day sent me into a depth of reflection. Reflection on the people still in Iraq & about those who have passed on....

I was viewing a documentary on National Geographic about World War II & I was blown for six.

I can't imagine what it'd be like having to leave everyone & everything you love behind, knowing within yourself that that may in fact be the last time you get to look at them, hear their voice or even see them smile........

I tip my hat to you once again LeRon Wilson, for the unselfish contribution you made not only to the United States of America but the world over & for all the many lives you continue to touch....

You're not here physically, but I know if we all just sit for a moment, you're there. Or just one glimpse at your picture & I know you're always around.

Keep on fighting the good fight LeRon...
May 25, 2009
It's Memorial Day. A time to remember those like you, those who laid down their lives for our country. Proud men and women just like you who bore the responsibility of every American and did something so few are willing to do. You were a better man than I, LeRon, for I would never have been able to make this sacrifice so willingly as you did.

I cried at the parade, watching those Iraq War veterans walk by, thinking of you and the rest just like you over the years, men and women who gave their life for us and our nation.

You gave your life for our country; it is the least we can do to give our day for you.

It should have been me, and so many others just like me, who should have been killed instead of you.

Thank you. Thank you so much for your sacrifice.

Thank you.

Today is for you, LeRon. You gave your life to honor this country, now it's your time to be honored.

Thank you.
May 11, 2009
we are all free because of your son, and i thank him, as well as you, for raising such a loyal and patriotic son for the civilians to adore.
April 16, 2009
It's been said that time heals all wounds & to some extent I believe that is true. However, in circumstances like this, it doesn't.... It only somehow gets a bit harder to bear, especially for those who knew you best.

I look at your picture regularly & I often think of what you'd be doing now & where you'd be. To some extent I know it's rhetorical, but I still wonder.

Your Dad is truly proud of you. & words cannot possibly begin to convey that. But one look at his face when he speaks about you & you feel the passion he has for you & about you.

I don't think anyone can begin to understand or fathom the pain both your parents have felt & still continue to feel. But I know in my heart, to those who it matters the most, your memory will never fade & to us you will always be alive one way or another.
April 16, 2009
You stated your name, the day you stood tall
To proudly serve our country, to serve us all
Knowing that you could fall
Now your name is on a memorial wall
April 09, 2009
Just the thought of what you went through and the lasting memory of the loss of your loved one, who died serving our country and fellow Americans grips this parent's heart, so very much that words fail to capture what truly yours must feel.
February 10, 2009
My friend and Brother, having lost myself, I think I know what you have gone through and continue to go through. Your strength in the face of such a situation is a testament to the grid and strength that you are built with, i certainly could lean a few things from your experience.
February 09, 2009
Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love,
the things you are, the things you never want to lose. My prayers are always with you Lawrence.
February 09, 2009
In My Pocket

You have memories in your pocket.
They rattle among the change.

Your memories of your son are treasures you carry wherever you go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give you comfort when you think you are alone.

Yes, you do have memories in your pocket, like so much other stuff you keep there.

But of all the treasures you have, it’s the memories of your son that are the most precious.

We all have pockets where percious memories are kept so I know you are holding yours, keep pressing on.
February 03, 2009
I would just like to take this time to thank your son for his sacrifice, for standing up for what he believed in. He will not be forgotten. Rest In Peace Soldier.
February 03, 2009
I found that if I need to see your smile, I can watch the sunrise every morning. And that at night, the stars mimics your eyes. So even though your earthly body is gone, your Heavenly one now exists for all to see. Your smile used to light up our lives, now it helps to light the earth! You are still accomplishing wonderful things. I am so proud of you... I miss you every second that passes, but the world needs to open their eyes and see the truth that Heaven is closer than what we really think.

January 21, 2009
Hey LeRon its been a while since I visited your page, but rest assured you are always on my mind and in my heart. Well Justin finally came home to visit hadn’t seen him since 3/07. Your mom finally got to see him and she was happy we went to breakfast the day before he left. We talked a lot about you and how much he misses you. He was not ready to see your final resting place so we did not force him to. I am going with your mom on 1/26 to the meeting with the board to try and get the street you lived on named after you. Anyway just wanted to stop by and let you know I am thinking of you and have not forgotten you.
January 21, 2009
To a true hero. It has been hard do to come terms with the fact that we will never see you again. I pray for your family everyday and I prayed for your safety in Iraq. I guess it was just your time. You completed your mission and did a mighty fine job. Every person you met you have left a mark on and I appreciate that. I am proud to have known you. You always tried so hard and that is a great quality to have...perseverance. That is exactly what you did your entire life. You had your mind set on a goal and you weren't afraid to give it all to fulfill that dream. I will forever remember you LeRon and you will always be in my heart. Although I miss you greatly I find comfort in the fact that you died doing exactly what you loved and living a dream. You risked and sacrificed your life for all of us here at home and I truly appreciate that. Thanks for eternity.
Love you always!
January 16, 2009
You have made such a mark in this world! I just wanted to say that I think of you always. I think of all the good you did and all the lives you touched. I am so proud to have been a small part of your world. Keep doing what you do. Always over the top! We are all so proud of you young man! I love you
January 16, 2009
Gone but never forgotten. Thank you
January 16, 2009
LeRon every time I see something on TV that is talking about the military and Iraq I always think of you. Although many of us didnt know you we still carry you around every day and wish that things could have been diffrent for you. Your family is still in my prayers and I pray that God is giving them the strength they need to keep going. Thank you for your service and sacrifice and know that you will NEVER be forgotten
January 16, 2009
May memories of you continue to comfort those you have left behind. You were set on earth to complete a task, by touching the lives you came in contact with. God needed you to complete another task. To reach even more people in your death. I have never met you and it is through your passing that we meet and hear about your greatness. You are doing well in your new role of reaching out, may God hold you, your family and friends in his arms. Thank you for your sacrifice

this is hard.

we were classmates. we joked. we laughed. we were friends.

we hadn't talked for a couple years. i heard about it. i wept.

i was struck deeply. i was changed.

gone. dead. i still can't believe it.

it had been a while since we'd spoken. yet the news changed my view on life.

why.

so young. so bright. so funny. so unique.

why.

a year and a half and i still can't get over it.

LeRon is missed. I miss LeRon.

i'm crying.

why.

the news has had a profound affect on me.

i can't imagine how the family feels. if someone like me, a past friend, practically an acquaintance, has been so struck with sadness, one can only imagine.

profound.

i can't believe it.

death is so real. now it feels so much more real.

why.

LeRon died a better man than i'll ever be.

why.

November 17, 2008
Yesterday I took the liberty of lighting a candle in Memorial Park in remebrance of you, and well I did promise your Mom that I would.

I thought it wouldn't have lit for very long considering I was outside in the open. But as I stood and watched it burn, I had to smile because I figured the candle not blowing out was your way of saying, 'Thank you for lighting a candle for me'. Up until I left about 10 minutes after, it was still burning :)

Whilst I was standing, looking at the candle light at the base of the statue, R. Kelly's 'I Wish' came to mind and I smiled....

I know you're in a better place, and you'd probably have wanted people to have a great big celebration in your honour, so I hope they did. :)

20 is a great milestone and though you're not here to enjoy it, somehow I know you're up there enjoying just as much. :)

Keep smiling LeRon.....
November 17, 2008
Le Ron,
Happy Belated Birthday in Heaven. May God hold you in the palm of His hand. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
November 10, 2008
Son,

Yesterday was Remembrance Day and all my thoughts were on you as I paraded for the Fallen Brave. It's been 16 months, pardner, and time hasn't made it any less painful, just slightly more bearable. I miss you just as much now as I did then, my Hero, and I love you even more, if that is at all possible. I will be celebrating your birthday this weekend... 20 yrs old, big step, pardner! Continue the good work you're doing up there with the angels, protecting mom, Nicholas and all your family and friends. ALL MY LOVE, AS ALWAYS.
October 13, 2008
To the family of Pfc Wilson, you have raised an outstanding person for him to want to dedicate his life to service of his country. Many people his age want to spend their life in jovial pursuits. It doesn't lessen the pain that he is no longer in your life in the physical sense, but have some solace in the fact that he is reaching millions of people in his death that he would not in life. In life I probably would not have crossed his path. He wanted greatness, this he has achieved at the tender age of 18. I salute your son he is a true American HERO!!!He paid the ultimate sacrifice with his life and he will never be forgotten!!! Thank you.

To the family and friends of Pfc Le Ron A. Wilson, our thoughts and prayers are with you in your loss. What he has done for our freedom will not be forgotten. May God comfort and bless your family and friends.

We are always brought back to reality whenever we visit this site. It is a real somber moment for us all. We miss you so much and still have a very hard time coming to grips with the fact that we can no longer see you, that you are no longer here. We feel cheated. We believe in God so we believe in Heaven. We know that you are surely with God. You embodied all that is good. That is why it is kind of hard for us to try to understand why you were taken from us. While you are in Heaven (with no pain, no worries), we are left to deal with what is left behind. We never could have imagined you leaving would be this bad. While we respect what you did, we mourn your passing, and we honor your life (as short as it was)… We would all give anything to be able to talk too you one more time, to see your smile, to touch you...
We miss you so very much. Life is just so unfair, why is it the good always die young. When we look at your brother we always get glimpses of you. We always wonder if he will understand why it is you are not there for him as he grows older. If we had any idea that you would be taken from us so young we would not have taken so much for granted. We have come to cherish every moment we shared, but we should have placed so much more into each precious moment we had. That is why we feel slighted and cheated. We never considered you would not be but a phone call, a letter or an e-mail away. You really were (are) special. We will always love and forever miss you.

ALL YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS

THANK YOU so much for all that you have done. You were truly an angel on earth. My sympathy to the whole family. And thank you for allowing us to continue to have this freedom that we get to enjoy each and every day. For every fallen soldier there is a star in the heavens and I will continue to bow my head and pray.
R.I.P. Angel
We will not forget...You are not forgotten.

I never met LeRon, but believe me when I say I know him.

On July 09th 2007, I was sitting skimming the newspaper at work when the headline ‘Tragic End to Dream’ jumped out at me. I saw that it originated from the Trinidad Express and since half of my roots originate from that island, I proceeded to read. As I read the article, I saw the name Lawrence Wilson and my heart dropped. I had never met Lawrence, if he’d walked past me at that moment I wouldn’t have been able to tell anyone who he was, but his name was a name I was most familiar with.

After reading the article, I sent a message and it was confirmed it was indeed ‘the’ Maj. Lawrence Wilson I’d heard so much about. Needless to say my heart sank lower and the tears begun….. I felt something, but it’s not a feeling you can put into words. To this day I can’t describe how I felt-not even to myself.

After that, I started my own research and found out a great deal about LeRon. When I saw how old he was, my heart sank even lower. Reading about the type of person he is (was) and all that he did made such a great impact that for a while it was hard to swallow……

The first time I saw his picture it was like reeling from a blow. Though I have NEVER met him before, his eyes are familiar. I have seen them before. Where and when I cannot say, but every time I look at a picture of LeRon a calming sense of peace comes over me and I feel a connection with him.

The opening statement on his website about remembering his smile and the twinkle in his eye and he’s living his dream in a better world is something I truly believe. With a spirit like his, and the nickname ‘Battle’ I don’t think anyone or anything can stop LeRon. Every time I read something about him, I’m drawn to tears. Even now as I sit here typing, the tears are flowing freely……. But then I think to myself ‘He is a happy person. Why cry, when we can all rejoice? Not in his death, but in all he accomplished in his 17+ years and in all the person’s lives he touched the world over (mine included)….’

I lit a candle in his memory yesterday and I will keep my candle lighting for the rest of the week. His picture sits on my bed head as a constant reminder of what GREAT heroes and GREAT men are made of, and what I myself should strive to be like. He has left a lasting impression on me and each day I look at his picture, he smiles back at me and it’s as if he’s saying, ‘Despite whatever may come your way, everything is gonna be alright’.

Today I came across the origination of the music we know as ‘TAPS’ or the ‘Last Post’ as it is commonly called. It is reported that in 1862 during the Civil War, Union Army Captain, Robert Ellicombe was with his men in Virginia. During the night, he heard the mournful cries of a soldier. Not knowing if he were an ally from the Union or a foe from the Confederate Army, the Captain braved the gunfire, risking his life, crawling on his stomach to where the wounded man lay. On reaching the man, he got a shock when he realized that it was his own son, who was studying music in the South. The Captain took the body back with him and asked permission to give his son a proper military funeral. Permission was denied as his son was ‘the enemy’. He also requested a band, but was given the option of having one musician or none at all. The Captain chose a bugler who he had play a piece of music he found in his son’s pocket. And so ‘TAPS’ was born.

The words to this song are;
Day is done. Gone the sun ... From the lakes..
From the hills, From the sky.. All is well..
Safely rest ... God is nigh..
Fading light ... Dims the sight ... And a star..
Gems the sky.. Gleaming bright ...From afar..
Drawing nigh Falls the night ...Thanks and praise..
For our days ... Neath the sun.. Neath the stars...Neath the sky
As we go ... This we know ... God is nigh..

After reading the story no other person comes to mind but LeRon. He is the type of person who would do exactly what the Captain did- regardless of which side of the war he was on. Lawrence and Simona, feel proud that you have the son you have. And though he may be in another place, his smile and his voice will ALWAYS linger. If you but listen, you’ll hear and see them both on the whisper of the wind……..

YOUR SACRIFICE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. MAY YOUR FAMILY FIND PEACE IN KNOWING THAT YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN
REST IN PEACE LE RON ADRIAN WILSON.
July 07, 2008
HeyLe Ron,

Yesterday marked one year since you went home to your heavenly home and we miss you so much. Its hard to believe that it is already one year...it feels like it was yesterday we got the news.

Yesterday your Mom and quite a few of us went to a mass held in your honor at your church, your priest spoke alittle about you and then he said a prayer in your honor. After service we went to eat and just talked about all the wonderful memories people had of you.
Our last stop of the day was your final resting place. Hope you like the flowers we left you.

Know that you are always in our hearts and that you are thought of and missed every day.

Happy First Anniversary in Heaven.
July 06, 2008
To the family and friends of Pfc. Wilson, please know that we have not forgotten.

You are in our thoughts and prayers, especially this week.
July 06, 2008
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 LeRon, 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.

You are remembered and respected. Thank you Pfc Wilson!

Rather than mourn the absence of the flame, celebrate how brightly it glowed.
Remembering you and all of the Heroes that have touched our lives today and everyday.
We will never forget.

I sit here and read Le Ron's legacy and some how notice an ANGEL is before me. One so sweet, angelic and one so reserved. Do know that Le Ron will forever be with YOU and watch for signs of his love being sent to you - through a Ray of Sunshine warming you or a Rain Drop sent to you from the heavens above. I thank Le Ron for his service to the Country I live in - Now he is serving in God's Country. Please know that you all as well as Le Ron are in my thoughts and prayers.
June 20, 2008
I didn't know Le Ron but I saw his picture on a friend’s MySpace and asked her who he was, she explained that he was the friend of her son (who is also in the Army) and that he was killed in Iraq. What made me question her was the fact that he looked so young and handsome. I was saddened to find out that he had been KIA. I then went to this guestbook and looked through the photos and read the entries, I ended up in tears. I was touched by how much he had been loved and how he had accomplished so much in his 18 yrs. He touched many lives throughout his 18 yrs but its his sacrifice that has now touched the world. I probably would not have met Le Ron if he had lived but its through his death that I have met this outstanding young man. He has put a face to the war for me, you hear about the war you see what is going on but you never really think until it hits close to home. On this almost one year anniversary of his passing I honor your son...Thank you for your sacrifice.
June 20, 2008
May God bless your and yours. I wish to express my deepest sympathies to the family and friends of PFC Wilson. Please know that there are people out here who do care and your HERO has not and will never be forgotten. Hold tight to your memories of him. I PRAY THAT PEACE WILL FIND YOU ALL SOMEDAY.

To the Mother of Le Ron A. Wilson, while searching pages posted by Military Times - Honor the Fallen of the fallen since the very beginning of what is called 'Operation Enduring Freedom' I came across your son Le Ron's picture. He has such a sweet face and when I saw how old he was tears came to my eyes. I'm a mother and I can't begin to know what your feelings must be like to lose a child. As a mother I do know that the death of your son must be unbearable for you and I'm so very sorry for the loss of your beautiful son. I see that it is almost 1 year since you lost him and I won't insult you with what many say about the passage of time healing the hurt. If it were me and God felt he needed my son, I know every day would feel like I just lost him. Time would not heal my heart or take away my broken heart. I don't know what else to say to you except that I am so very, very sorry that you don't have your brave son with you today. Please know that both of you will be in my heart and prayers. I will think of you often. May God bless you and yours.
June 03, 2008
Hey Le Ron you left Trinidad soo young I know you don't have vivid memories of me, but its your Godsister your dad's god-daughter. When i heard about the death tears immediately ran down my face and shock kept me for two days, i didn't believe it. Though we never kept in touch, i felt really close to you so much that a tear is still running down my eyes, but im shedding it knowing that you're safe now. I'm sorry I never called, but I know we'll meet again soon love, from the depts of the waters to the peak of eternity, I'll aways love yuh L, for LIFE! Miss you a whole lot. Lov ya kid! Muahh Jizey!

I did not know Le Ron but recently loosing my nephew PFC Aaron J. Ward, KIA on 5/6/08 has really brought things into perspective that so many young soldiers have paid the ultimate price and they will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Looking at all the photos of Le Ron's life showed a good image of his life and that those around him really love him. He looked like a really great kid with a wonderful smile. Thank you young solder for your commitment to our nation and the very freedom we often take for granted. I am ashamed to say that it took the loss of my nephew to really acknowledge so many fallen hero's and I am ashamed of that. My promise to my nephew was to make sure that I visit every guest book of every fallen soldier after him and pay my respects. I was touched by your mother's comments so much I will try to visit every guest book starting with our first fallen hero. God bless you young man and thank you, you will forever be remembered as a true american hero. Our families will forever share a similar grief and you will be in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless you and your family, we will keep you in our hearts and prayers.

A year is slowly approaching, special boy.
So many things changed and transitioned.
The narrow and bumpy road that few will follow; is slowing us down, special boy.
Its as if your departed created an unbalance in the universe, or even a tribulation.
I forget at times; sometimes for seconds, and other times for minutes of you departure...
Can a blessing come out of a tragedy?
I am still blinded by that truth.
There isn't anything on this earth that can replace your gifted life, special boy.
I think about you everyday, and although I know that you will never view these words with your eyes; I know that you will feel the love that pours from my heart to your soul, up there in heaven!!
Be at peace special boy...for you left the world as a Legendary Man.

Four Candles for You
by Unknown

The first candle represents our grief.
The pain of losing you is intense.
It reminds us of the depth of our love for you.

This second candle represents our courage.
To confront our sorrow,
To comfort each other,
To change our lives.

This third candle we light in your memory.
For the times we laughed,
The times we cried,
The times we were angry with each other,
The silly things you did,
The caring and joy you gave us.

This fourth candle we light for our love.
We light this candle that your light will always shine.
As we enter this holiday season and share this night of remembrance
with our family and friends.
We cherish the special place in our hearts
that will always be reserved for you.
We thank you for the gift
your living brought to each of us.
We love you.
We remember you.
November 28, 2007
We did not know the pain you had
or hear your final sigh
We only know your life was over
Without a last good-bye
God knew you had to leave us,
But you didn't go alone
For a part of each of us went with you,
The morning God took you home
To some you will soon be forgotten,
To others just a part of the past
But to us who loved and lost you,
Your memory will always last
God gave us strength to face it and
Courage to bear the blow
But what it meant to lose you Le Ron
Only some will ever know.
November 24, 2007
We went to see Gene and Le Ron. We sang happy birthday to him. We gave him a small plant for the holidays. We told him you love and miss him. We will leave him something each time we go to see Gene. May God bless and keep you and your family

Today is Thanksgiving and I know everyone is sad that you cannot be here to share the moment with us. But I am sure you are watching all of us and wishing it to be great even though you are not here. I hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving in Heaven. Please know you are missed this Thanksgiving as you are everyday. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. You were such a very special young man with the biggest heart. This Thanksgiving I want to Thank You for being such a wonderful friend to Justin. And I am most thankful for having known you.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING IN HEAVEN LE RON
November 21, 2007
Please remember the good times you all had
When you do you won’t be so sad.
Le Ron is always with you and never far away
He is in every thought you have every single day.
We know your tears will still fall
We know you miss him after all.
But we think he is happy and oh so free
He is with Jesus, where he needs to be.
November 20, 2007
Have you ever had a Friend who meant everything to you one you loved so very much and miss him like I do?
Have you ever had a heartache or felt the awful pain or shed so many tears, they dropped like falling rain?
If you have never had these feelings, I pray you never do for when you lose a Friend you lose a big part of you .
Some people say hearts don’t break, but God that is not true Because the day LE RON left us our hearts broke right in TWO

Le Ron we miss you soooo much.

Birthdays In Heaven

Are there birthdays in Heaven?
Does the angel blow his horn?
Announcing to everybody
That this is the day you were born?

Can the stars be your balloons
And angel food your cake?
Presents wrapped in moonbeams
All the angels helped to make.

Birthdays meant so much to you
They were always a big deal
Birthday presents, lots of friends
And perhaps a special meal.

So we'll whisper a little prayer today
Asking everyone up above
To sing you a Happy Birthday song
And give you all our love.
~ Author unknown~
November 16, 2007
"Happy Birthday Le Ron"
It's sure to be the best one yet,
Though you left us here behind.
Did you think that we'd forget?

Your cake this year, will surely be,
A beauty to behold.
With the icing made of Silver,
And the candles made of Gold.

Yes your birthday in Heaven,
Will be such a grand affair.
And we know you'll look so handsome,
With your wings and the halo on your head.

The Angels will come from everywhere,
To sing your birthday song.
And we know they'll be so happy,
That you've joined, God's Happy Throng.

No we can't send a card this year,
Or give a gift so fine.
So we'll just send a special prayer,
To a wonderful friend of ours.

Happy 19th Birthday
November 16, 2007
I think this is what Le Ron would want to say:

Today is my birthday, Celebrate my life with you
And remember the good time, not the bad.
Do not be sad, look up towards the sun and catch every ray of light upon your cheek, for I am there with you.

Today is my birthday, be happy for me
I lived short, but full. I had the pleasure of love and the joy of my family.
Do not be sad, look up towards the stars and catch each twinkle in your heart, for I am there with you.

Today is my birthday, my legacy is not wealth or mighty belongings,
my legacy is you and your life, spend it wisely and carefully guard it always
Do not be sad feel the wind on you face and in your hair and know that I love you for I am there with you in your laughter and in your hearts.

Today is my birthday, learn to live again without me, take my strength with you for you are not alone.
Do not be sad, feel the rain on your face, feel all life’s treasures and know that you are alive!
At each step of the way I will help you for I am with you always, until we meet again.

Today is my birthday.
November 16, 2007
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Sorry I couldn't make it around your way, but I promise to visit again really soon!
19...wow! Happy Birthday Baby Boy, may the angels sing you a song of happiness and grace for the rest of your life. I love you!!

So as I lay here almost 4 in the morning, I can hardly sleep as I'm tossing and turning just thinking about you. How it seems so melancholy now this day when you were born for it should have been a day to greet you in some way of communication knowing you’d still be around. I’ve come to realize more so now how time has flown yet the pain of knowing that you’re not here physically still lingers deep in my heart. Though I know you’re up there shining your love upon all of us with that big bright kool-aid smile that I’ve missed so much. I would have loved to see that smile on your face and the twinkle in your eyes as I would imagine you celebrating your birthday at your home where you belong by those many pictures you would have taken and the never-ending stories you would have told the world. The excitement that would have brought you when there would be a party to come with your special friends probably along with a cake just made for you, embellished with your name and age with all the candles lit. That magic moment of you closing your eyes to making that special wish that would surely come true. Now, the only wish that I would ever make can never come to surpass, as you cannot return. Longing to see you again as you’ve made a promise to return comes over me and brings me down. But flashes of your memories that have never faded through the sweetness of your smile and voice, the goodness of your soul, and knowing that one sweet day we’ll meet again through God’s own time and place.

Happy 19th Birthday Le Ron! May God Bless you with so many more blessings. As you party it up there, we've already planned something special for you down here in Hawaii. A dinner has been set, your cake will be lit, pictures will surround us with your love, and we'll enjoy celebrating your birthday as if you were in our presence.

Love Always,
Roxy.

Hi My Mr.GQ

Though you may not be my nephew in blood you are my nephew in love for the rest of my life. As the days and the months go by i pray for your blessed soul that is resting in peace and i cry and say why? You promised me that you would be back! I watch the news and I see some of the soldiers that are returning back home to there families and i get mad and cry. I then i ask that question again why this young precious soul that made his mother happy in every way possible why? I still have no answer though I know it is what you wanted to do that is still not enough for me, You are missed in every way possible. I drive with you every day in my car and remember you always trying to scare me and test my strength to show that you are not weak and up for any challenge and i would laugh at you and say you still not ready yet and we would laugh and you would say wait and see. I see now that you were more than ready because you became that man of strength, dignity and respect. You won babe. See you soon up in that special place with our father. RIP PFC Leron Adrian Wilson. Please look after your Mom and Brother for they miss you sooo very much. I miss your detailed stories though very long because you were so adamant about being specific about every detailed we could never get to the end of the story without continuations. I miss you Mr.GQ. Love you always Portia and Joyce Oscar your extended family for ever. See you soon.
P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR SOLDIER BOY. On November 16th, 2007 You would be 19 years old. RIP BABE. You are the Man.

I may be invisible to your sight,
But I'm forever here,
You may not hear me speak,
But I'm forever whispering in your ear,
You may not feel my touch,
But I'm forever by your sides,

You may not feel my presences
But I'm forever going to remind you
my soul has Not died

You may not see my face
But I'm forever smiling at you
may not know that I'm there
But I'm forever watching what you are all doing,
I may not breathe the same air
But I'm forever holding you
and though I cannot be seen
I'm forever, like my love for you all,

You were so full of life,
Always smiling and carefree,
Life loved you being a part of it,
And we loved you being a part of us.
You could make anyone laugh,
If they were having a bad day,
No matter how sad they were,
You could take the hurt away.
Nothing could every stop you,
Or even make you fall,
You were ready to take on the world,
Ready to do it all.
But God decided he needed you,
So from this world you left,
But you took a piece of all of us,
Our hearts are what you kept.
Your seat is now empty,
And it's hard not to see your face,
But please always know this,
No one will ever take your place.
You left without a warning,
Not even saying good-bye,
And we can't seem to stop,
Asking the question why?
Nothing will ever be the same,
The halls are empty without your laughter,
But I know you're in Heaven,
Watching over and looking after us.
We didn't see this coming,
It hit us by surprise,
And when you left this world,
A small part of us died.
Your smile could brighten anyone's day,
No matter what they were going through,
And we know everyday for the rest of our lives, we'll be missing you.

Rest In Peace Le Ron
We miss you so much

I guess the lord works in mysterious ways
But why did he have to take you away
I miss those days when we use to chill,
Stay out mad late and go bother lil
I miss those days when we got really drunk
When we played football and when you'd try to dunk
You were a friend and a mentor like no other
You were a brother, from another mother
We were spose to go to Hawaii, on R&R
Just forget we were in a time of war
But instead, i'm left w/o a wingman
No 1 2 relate 2, I need you back man
Well Wilson, I'll see you again
Someday i'll meet you in heaven
You'll be in my thoughts and in my heart
You will be missed, but not forgotten

We always take for granted, what we thought we'd never lose.
Because we never thought it would happen until we heard the news.

They say you were chosen for His garden,
His preciously hand picked bouquet.
"God really needed him, that's why he couldn't stay".

Saying goodbye is never easy
Its the hardest thing to do.
But what hurts us even more
Is not the chance to say it to you

So today, Jesus, as you are listening in your home above
Would you go and find Le Ron and tell him we miss him and are sending him our love.

Borrowed Angels

They shine a little brighter, they feel a little more
They touch your life like no one before
They love a little stronger, they live to give their best
They make our lives so blest, so why do they go so soon?
The ones with souls so beautiful
I heard someone say- -

There must be Borrowed Angels, here in this life
They come along, into this world, and make this world bright
But they can't stay forever
Cause they're Heaven sent
And sometimes, Heaven needs them back again.

They reach a little deeper, they see what's in your soul
And even when they leave you know, you'll never let them go
The world's a little richer, just cause they came along
Their love goes on and on, so why do they go so soon?
The ones with souls so beautiful. I heard someone say--

There must be Borrowed Angels, here in this life
They come along, into this world, and make this world bright
They can't stay forever, cuase they're Heaven sent
And sometimes, Heaven needs them back again.

How else can you explain why they're here and not here to stay?
I believe there must be

Borrowed Angels, here in this life

Le Ron I strongly believe you were a Borrowed Angel and God just wanted you back. He loaned you to us for a short while and then he wanted you back with him. You are no longer a Borrowed Angel you are now a Guardian Angel. We miss you.

Son,

It is 1100 hrs on the 11th day of the 11th month. Every military person holds this day sacred. To me, it is now more meaningful than ever, as prayers are offered to the battle-brave soldiers who paid the ultimate price - the sacrifice of their life - for the peace and freedom of mankind. I reflect upon you Le Ron, as I stand in my white uniform, (ceremonial order), proud with all my trimmings. I reflect on how you looked – the brave, perfect soldier. As the last post is blown and I return compliments, I think of you again, my son, Private First Class. I see you and I smile. People look at me strangely and wonder why I smile, but that’s our secret. I remember you boarding that bus on your way to Basic Training, already a Private First Class. Someone asked who the senior solder was, and already it was you, even though you had only just boarded the bus and your first day was not yet complete. You had not even reached your Base, but on your shoulders you already had the responsibility of watching over and sometimes even counselling your fellow soldiers, most older and some much older than you. Your 17 and a half years would not stop you, pardner. Son, you have excelled, you have mastered, you have gained the respect of your peers, you have taken charge, you have led, you have motivated. You have even started, maybe without your knowledge, your own fan club of which I myself am a member. Now you lead in a different army, my son, PFC Le Ron Wilson. At 1100 on the 11th day of the 11th month, you are in Heaven, leading as only you know how, taking charge of those Veterans, young and old, experienced and inexperienced, brave and not so brave. I can hear you son, “Let’s put some order here, soldiers. Come on, get up, we’re here for a purpose, don’t let this challenge shake us; we are here for a purpose”. And I know, even if they don’t (as yet), that you will succeed. They don’t know what they’re up against and are probably wondering who the hell, sorry… who the heaven is this young lad: “He’s so young, so very young”, “He should not even be here as yet”, “One thing’s for sure, he’s smartly dressed”, “He’s oozing confidence”, “Does anyone know this guy?” “You mean you haven’t heard about him yet?” “He’s really good”, “Left his mark down there”.

He’s Le Ron Adrian Wilson, Private First Class.

Your proud, loving father

All my love forever, son.

My sincere thanks to all who continue to shower the family with love and support. Over 4 months have passed since Le Ron said goodnight, yet the pain is still great. It is heartening and very comforting to read the kind entries posted here. God's richest blessings to you all, may He continue to look after you and guide you in your daily lives.

A Proud Father

Today makes 4 months since you went to reside with your Heavenly Father. It has been a difficult 4 months for all. We miss you so much. Spoke to your Mom last week and she is not doing too well, I think she is finally allowing herself to grieve, instead of trying to be strong for everyone. It hurts to see her hurting so much but there is nothing I can do but be there for her. The one thing she wants (that we all want) I nor anyone can give her, that is you back, but she does have the memories of all the joy you brought her.
We miss you Le Ron. Keep looking out for all of us.

Thank you for your scarfice! Your a true Hero!

When somebody dies, a cloud turns into an angel, and flies to tell God to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to the world, and sings a silent prayer that makes the rain cry.
People disappear, but they never really go away.
The spirits up there put the sun to bed, wake up the grass and spin the earth in dizzy circles.
Sometimes you can see them dancing in a cloud during the day-time, when they're supposed to be sleeping.
They paint the rainbows and also the sunsets and make waves splash and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes
And when they sing windsongs, they whisper to us, don't miss me too much.
The view is nice and I'm doing just fine.
October 27, 2007
No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. My deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.

Hey Cous,
It's been a while since I wrote in this book, but I did make several attempts. Time seems to be in the form of a merry-go-round these past few months (moving, but going no where). It's still hard for me, it feels like just yesterday in my heart. I signed into my new unit yesterday, and as I sat there and waited for the CDR, I looked outside, and seen several young troops raking up leaves...a sudden rush of tears bursted into my eyes...why you? I keep asking myself!?! I want to scream it out loud so the whole world can hear me...WHY HIM? If someone could give me a logical reason, maybe then this bitter pain will go away! I mean, it's not like we talked everyday, or seen each other a whole lot...but that is the point...I always thought that you would be there, so there was no need for me go the extra mile to make visits more possible, no need for me to take leave today instead of waiting until the holidays. Would you believe that they put Tim on funeral detail, I mean come on...how much can one person take?!?
Your mom, kid...she's a stallion...I mean I'm just a second cousin, and I'm grieving as though we were joined by the waist throughout our life. She admits to breaking down when the moment catches her alone, she still craves for your presence... but cous, your momma is a strong woman, I can only wish to mirror her strength and courage one day! I am always thinking about you, and everyday there is a candle burning in my house on your behalf...be at peace. I love you!

Leron aka "Willie" we will never forget you. Your bravery and valour have made us even more proud of you not only as a nephew but also as a teenager graduated into manhood. Your smile and jokes and trademark "Willie" dance i.e the one holding the leg behind the back and jumping around" is but one memory of many fond memories that we have of you and will always hold dear and cherish in our hearts. Words cannot express how much we miss you and will always love you and not a day goes by that we do not think about you and pray for you, although we know that you are with the Lord and now serve in the greatest army of all, the army of Christ. Thank you for touching our lives in a special way that only you with your wit and effortless charm could have done. Willie we will always love you and carry you in our hearts forever. Live on brave soldier, live on. Love Maurice & Janelle

I remember when I had ms.smith class with LeRon man those were the days. He, Timmy, and natalie would cheat off of me cause they would never read the book that was given. LeRon made english class so much fun with his smart comments. He always put a smile on my face. I told him what I want to do in life and he told me about the army. Right before he was going to Iraq I had asked him if he would be here for my twenth birthday he said yes. I hold him to that. He came by my job when I asked him that. I was working so I couldn't talk long but I told him to hit me up when he is leaving the mall. but I mange to take a break early that day and i saw him in the food court with Irina and two other boys I didn't know I sat there with them talked to them. That's when he had told me he was going to Iraq. I told to be safe and to come home fast before my birthday. He told me okie and I remember giving him a big hug and I kissed him goodbye. I never thought that I would lose him. nor did I think he would have died there. He was too young he had a life to live and I still find myself thinking he is still here I still feel like he is coming for my birthday.
when I found out he pasted away it took me a while for it to but to reality. I never thought of him being gone until I went to a church on my lunch break at a new job in which LeRon didn't know. After I prayed I found myself running into work with tears in my eyes and just clocked back in. I only took twenty minutes but I didn't care I had to keep myself busy. Then we all went to go see him and a week later I had a dream about him and I dreamed he came to my new job and picked up stuff to buy knowing he wasn't going to buy any of it. What had hit me was the fact I remembered he was no longer with us and I remember telling him in my dreams that I finish work at six o'clock and that to wait for me in front of the job. I gave him a big hug and two kisses and as he walked up stairs he repeated six o'clock right and me with tears in my eyes I replied yes six. Its funny that when I dreamed him that night I had to go on break at six o'clock and I started to cry because I know his spirit is waiting for me everyday at six o'clock for me to finish work and meet him up. up to this day I feel he waits for me. I miss you LeRon. and as much as it hurts to know that your not here anymore kills me inside and I know your happy up there in heaven but down here us your friends are crying hurt that we lost one of the most coolest and greatest friend ever. I will miss you like crazy and I hope you will come in my dreams again oneday and may this time we will go where ever you want us to go I promise. I love you homie and I will see on the other side soon.
October 06, 2007
To the family of this brave and wonderful young man. I know your pain. I too am sorry this has taken me so long to do. I know you understand. So many say that this does get easier. But I know his parents have a broken heart that can never heal. Le Ron must have been one of the most wonderful young men in this crazy world. He must have been so brave. He had to be strong. How great to know that he got all of this from his family. When I saw his parents that day at Fort Stewart, I knew he got his strength from his father. He stood so strong that day for the rest of the family. I also knew he got his heart and his smile from his mother. We had never met before but that day we became sisters. We continue to pray for you each day. I thank you for your prayers. I do believe that Gene and Le Ron are at rest now. I know that they have peace. A friend of mine said they don't have to wake up dirty, tired and hungry any more. They wake up in God's love and in his son's arms. We love all of you and we thank you for the kind words and prayers. Call any time. Two mothers with broken hearts. Two sisters with the same pain. Two women who will never be the same. Stand down Pfc. Wilson your mission is complete.
October 04, 2007
I wish to encourage both mom, dad and extended family members of LeRon to remain strong through this ordeal. Lawrence you did a marvelous job as a dad, I still look to you for advise on how to parent my child. I ask that is not forgotten as you search for answers to LeRon's life. Additionally do not divert from the wonderful, caring, encouraging and true person that you are.

When i read all the entries, they all show how beautiful LeRon was and though I did not have the opportunity to get to know him well, all those characteristics are reflection of both you and Kim's goodness.

Like you would say Lawrence, "I dont know the word 'cant'." because you believed and have proven time and time again that there is nothing in life that you cant find a solution to. Nothing in life that you cant put in perspective and overcome. I do ask that you continue to think in this light and progress accordingly.

I had the opportunity to speak with Leron a few times and I know he was extremely anxious to come home to T'dad to visit his family after his return. I know too that all the energy transmitted in his tone depicted great love and adoration for you his family.

Pain, hurt, loss leaves you walking around feeling hallow, talking to persons and its almost as if you are not there. We know it will take a while to fully comprehend this tragedy but you are not alone. From all that has been said LeRon is right there beside you providing you with the comfort you need. Additionally there are friends, though not directly in your space who will always be here, forever.
October 04, 2007
My heartfelt sympathy to the Wilson and Francis families at the loss of Le Ron. I did not know Le Ron, but my heart is broken and I am saddened for your loss of such a fine young person and hero. I want to thank your son, for his act of becoming a member of the forces that keep us free and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memory of all those who knew him and those who didn't, but have heard or read about him.
October 04, 2007
I can not tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your son. As I read all the names of the men and women that gave their lives, it hurts me to see that so many peoples lives have changed and so many of our young people are gone. Your young man is a Hero. He will be remembered by all as such whether we knew him personally or not. May God comfort and bless you and yours during your time of sorrow.
May LeRon rest in peace.
October 03, 2007
Hi Le Ron, gone to soon, but I remember all the fond memories you shared with me,my son and my husband, remember when your dad brought us some blue crabs from Tobago and they all got untied in the big crocus bag and you said Aunty don;t worry about catching them, "just bring the hammner and break their heads that's what my Dad would do"and we did just that, you helped hammer them to death for me to cook, oh LeRon, you always had that shy smile on your face, we love and will never forget you, since I know that your'e hiding under the shadow of the almighty and sitting on the right of the throne with God, bless you, sleep peacefully always.
October 02, 2007
To Le Ron's family, I was at FT Stewart yesterday and wanted you to know that LeRon has a tree and stone on the Warrior's Walk. I took a picture with my cell phone just in the event you might want it.
May God bless you always in your healing, If I can help with emotional support please also contact me.

In memory of my son

When we lose someone we love
The loss seems too great to bear
God sends us friends to comfort us
To show that He deeply cares

But in the dark hours of the night
When there’s nobody else around
When we feel the saddest and loneliest
It’s there God’s love can be found

It’s like a soothing, healing balm
To soothe our broken hearts
The healing oil poured over us
That flows into every part

We can rest secure in God’s love
And know He’s by our side
He holds us when we feel as though
A part of us has died

We can know that God will listen
When we just want to talk
And when we feel we need to cry
We can share it with the Lord

For He is always waiting there
Ready with arms open wide
As we pour out the hurt within
He pours His love inside

Our Father above loves us so much
And will never leave us alone
He will not forsake us in our need
To face this on our own

He comforts us and strengthens us
And rubs us with His balm
And as the dawn breaks through the night
We’ll awake in His loving arms
October 02, 2007
When I heard he died it really hit me hard.
I just had to send you this sympathy card.

I share your pain and your grief.
I know he will visit the heavenly chief.

You will be blessed even though you are sad.
Death is natural and it's not always bad.

My prayers go out to you the family and his friends.
Remember, after death a persons life goes on.
Just because he's dead he's not gone.

All you have to do is think of him always.
Also, appreciate the way he lived his days.
Remember, God doesn't always tell you why.
But also remember that his spirit is close by.

Longing For One More Day

When we lose someone we love it seems that time stands still.
What moves through us is a silence... a quiet sadness...
A longing for one more day... one more word... one more touch...
We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived.
And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
We will see you again some day, in a heavenly place where there is no parting.
A place where there are no words that mean good-bye
October 01, 2007
I miss the way you made me laugh. Every morning I reminisce on all the good, fun times and conversations we had. Whenever I think about you, I see your smile, that cheesy kool-aid smile and I can hear your laughter.
I miss you so much.
I'm very grateful to have had you as a friend in my life. You taught me a lot about the value of life and the way you had to live it. We were suppose to travel the world together, and I'll complete that for you because I know you'll be by my side the entire journey.
Your kind words and actions will remain alive in my thoughts everyday. You're a hero, and not just any hero, but everyone's hero and role model. I'll proudly carry on your memory and always remember you as LeRon, my soldier who loved life to its fullest.
You'll stay in my prayers, thoughts and in my heart forever & for always, soldier.

LeRon, I have been searching for the words to write to you. There are so many memories that I have of you and as I think of them, I can see you so vividly that I have a hard time believing that you are gone. Your determination to do what your heart wanted showed your maturity and your love for your mom and brother. You had a heart to love and protect that no matter what. I love the way you became a big brother to your cousins, Tim and Caleb. My boys look up to you and you had convinced Tim that the army was the ultimate place to be. That's because of your influence on his life. I thank you for who you had become: a young man who influenced so many by your beautiful smile, your love for your family and your love for your country. You have shown what it is to be a friend, a man and ultimately a hero. I love you dearly and I know that God welcomed you with open arms. You fulfilled your mission on this earth and we are proud of you. We will meet on the other side. Until then,

Your Aunt, Doreen Wilson

Hello Le Ron,

I didn't get the opportunity to meet you or even speak with you. But, from all that I've been told, and all that I have read, we all will be left short of the makings of a great man. If all of our young men, our young people, were able to learn just a little from you, they would be better for it. Peace be with you.
September 30, 2007
LeRon you were like a big brother to us. Even though you never dircetly gave us a life lessons but let by example and the biggest example yu gave us was by in your death, and that was to follow your dream and for that we love you ever more.

Hey Le Ron,
It's taken me forever to write this, although I wanted to be one of the first to say something. But, what is there to say that no one else has said. Yes, you are a Hero in my eyes (you've been playing a hero since you were born and proved it when you slid down the crib as a baby). Yes, you were sweet, loving and had a smile to melt anyone's heart - everyone who met you knows that.

I guess what I would say is that's it's been so long since I saw you - you've grown into a fine young man, and yet it seems like only yesterday we were getting 'kicks'. I'm really sorry that you're gone so soon and we really didn't get to know each other as adults.

One lesson your leaving has taught me was that no one knows what tomorrow would bring and should live each day to the fullest with no regrets. Yet again, you've had the last word that everyone will keep talking about.

Lawrence, Kim - My sympathies to you both, you have lost someone truly special. But, knowing Le Ron, he's up there saying 'Don't worry, I told you I believe I can fly'. He's looking out for us.

I'm really proud of you - my daughters never even met you and they know so much about you. I miss you dearly Le Ron and still don't believe you're gone.

Rest In Peace my hero.

I think that LeRon was the only person I knew that liked curry and ketchup, actually i think that he was the only person i knew that liked ketchup more than me. Guess what, he was 10 and i was 29.

I remember one time his uncle Keith took some of us to TGI Fridays and when it was time to order the stuff we ordered LeRon jumped up and said "This is a win win situation" man we started laughing and that was the phrase of the evening. Up to this day we remember it.

His auntie Joanne and I helped helped a bit in with his work just before common entrance. It weird to think of him not being around any more cause he was so full of energy and really a one of a kind.

To Lawrence and Kim i know i didn't express my feeling to you about this but its really difficult to find the words to tell you how really unfair this really is, but my hope is that you find the strength to accept this and to know that you got a chance to share time with him as well all did in our own way.

i have a daughter Janai and i always tell my wife that i find that she reminds me of him in some ways. Boy she has a lot of energy

LeRon your presencs was felt and still is

September 27, 2007
you were one of my best friends, one of the few people i can trust. my respect for you will never degrade. i will miss you. see you on the other side.
September 26, 2007
LeRon, you give a profound meaning to “what the heart has once known, it shall never forget”. There are always things, times and events constantly reminding me of you…….. a street sign, teenagers clowning around and laughing, someone taking a picture, a video game store, someone performing some act of kindness, but most of all someone with a bright, cheerful smile. My initial reaction is usually one of sadness but in the end these all bring a smile to my face and a soothing to my heart.

LeRon, at your young age I know you have lived, loved, and touched lives in ways beyond our understanding. You are truly a ‘Child of God’ and one of His Angels.

Thank you, LeRon, for all the adventures in your life that you have shared with me. I love you so much and I’m proud to say you are (not were) my nephew.

In the words of Kahlil Gibran:

“When you are sorrowful look into your heart
and you shall see that you are weeping
for that which has been your delight.”
September 24, 2007
Every morning I wake up and look at your picture on my bookcase. I still can't beleive it. You were larger than life. I imagine that you are still away in the US enjoying life to the fullest as you always did.

I remember that day (November 26, 2006) when Auntie Doreen, Uncle Dave, Tim, Caleb, and myself drove to Aberdeen to visit you in camp. It would be the last time we would meet - you could not stop talking about your army training and your plans to continue to excel. I knew you were truly happy - I console myself with that thought - but it still pains when I glance upon your picture. I see you too everytime I see or think about my son, Chike. You two were inseparable when you were in Trinidad.

I pray everyday that God will continue to give me, your family and friends, the strength to accept his will.

Until we meet again Leron. I am proud of you.

Your Uncle,
Keith

Special thanks to The US Army, his Unit Comrades, family, friends and all those persons who have expressed their sympathy and continue to give us support:

Le Ron’s website, (soon to be launched), will be a contact point for friends and wellwishers to view pictures and videos and to share their thoughts and memories.

A committee will be formed in the US to ensure that his face, name and values live on and never vanish. He has touched so many people by his life and death that I know that he will never be forgotten… those who didn’t know him before want to know him now; those who never met him wish they did.

To the families of those who have lost loved ones in battle, my heart goes out to you and your family as I share in your pain, but God’s words are strong. Trust in Him and you will be comforted and be glorified. I hope one day that we all can come together and comfort each other with memories.

September 23, 2007
Everywhere I go, everything I do, I see, feel and remember you. I wanted so badly for you to experience all the joys that life has to offer. The memories we shared somewhat comforts me. Thanks again, for being my son. Le Ron, I saw so many of my own traits in you. You have lived your life well. Everyone has remarked in good favour. Your death has affected so many persons, some who didn’t even know you, and that is their loss. It is 3:20 am on Sept 19, 07. I know you are on sentry, looking out for your family and friends, even at this time. You were always the protector. You have changed all our lives.

Le Ron, life will not be the same, but as your father and pardner, I will strive every day to ensure that your death was not in vain. I am constantly looking for revelation (answers). I know you are up there volunteering for everything and, I am sure, continuing to be a hero. Anyway, you can assist me in one thing, to help me find the meaning of your life… your life’s purpose. Leave a sign, I will find it. The remainder of my life will be to ensure there are answers to all this, pardner, and that they are realized. Son, I LOVE YOU… Every time I wear my uniform now, I wear it even prouder than before, because of you.

In your life, Le Ron, every significant event you had, I was there. Nothing could have kept me away. Everything I did in my life was to strengthen you and you in turn were my strength. Your mother truly loved you (her little boy) and she has done her very best. You were indeed a perfect mould. Know that even the tough moments were to ensure that the best approach was taken to strengthen and guide you to become the beautiful person you eventually did. I only wish I could have been in your presence more and shared more memories. I miss all that I missed in your life. If only I could have known… Thank you, Pardner, for being so thoughtful, and for creating all those memories evidenced by the pictures and videos you made. No one knew at the time why you were doing it, but we all understand now. I miss your presence.

Love, Dad

A father’s message to his son…you will always be remembered

To my son and ‘pardner’:

Son, it has taken me a very long time to write to you, I’ve deliberately stayed away. The time has come for me to put pen to paper...

I write to you to tell you that you have made me a proud father. I was proud from the day you were born and will be proud forever more, until eternity. I remember clearly how it felt to be in your presence and that memory I keep forever. Someone once told me that even though my father may be dead, he is not gone, because I could still hear his voice speaking to me and guiding me. That was very true. Leron, you have died, but pardner you are not gone. I keep hearing and seeing you every day. I love you all, my son, and I know that you knew that. I know you may have sometimes thought that I was tough, but remember, you also were a tough lad yourself, and so I needed to be. All was done with love to ensure that became the person you eventually did.

I lay here, some months after, still unable to sleep… It is 2am and I am sorting though your pictures for a new album I got. Staring at your face in every picture, each one telling a story of how strong, passionate, loving and caring you were. Let’s not forget, protective. All who knew you felt you looked out for them, and continue to. Always the protector, I know you are still protecting us, from wherever you are. Pardner, the pain is unbearable. Everyone says that I’m strong and you know that I am, but I am here crying as I write this because it hurts so bad, pardner. If I could change or reverse this moment, this I would surely do, you know this. There is nothing under the sun that I would not have done for you.

My being is still searching for an answer to reverse this. My brain knows that I can’t, but my heart and soul are not giving up. Your death has affected so many persons and I have watched your relatives, friends, godparents share in the pain. I don’t know how to feel, I am lost, confused and this is strange for me. Every day I wake up hoping that it’s all a bad dream; it can’t be true. I remember recently when we were speaking, you said ‘dad, I am trying so hard to be just like you’. I saw the ambition to surpass me in everything, and you have done so. I am very, very proud of you, my pardner, my hero.

A proud father ‘till my death when we will meet again…

Sleep on, brave soldier, sleep on…

I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER,

I was privileged to live with Leron and share a special part of his life between the ages of 6 and 11 at which time he migrated to the US to live with his mom Simona (Kim). Leron was a very well-rounded child, his early years carefully planned by his father Lawrence to include just the right balance of work and play. The result of this was a very happy, content little boy who, even when he wouldn't get his way, was quite happy to make 'lemonade out of his lemons'.

To date, his smile and laugh remain the sweetest, most infectious I have ever had the pleasure to witness, a vivid picture imprinted forever in my memory. His entire face would light up when he laughed and you couldn't help but laugh too when he related one of his million and one stories or jokes.

He was such a brave boy, who believed that nothing was impossible and in his naiveté and enthusiasm, took risks very few of us would even consider. A very loving child, he was never shy about expressing his love both physically and verbally, to his parents whom he loved dearly, his family and friends. Leron, for allowing me to share your life and your love, I thank you. The honour was and remains mine. I will always love you; you will be forever in my heart.

Aunty Jenny.

Dear Little Edgar,

I’m sorry that I could not be there to tell you goodbye. It has been such a long time since I’ve seen that devious, wicked-looking smile on your face.

Real soldier that you are, you would not want me to shed any tears. I cannot promise that! Anyhow, you went down like a real trooper, with your darn boots on.

Big Edgar, granddad, would be proud of you. I too am very proud of you.

The gates of heaven have just been opened wide to receive you. The sentries are at Present Arms. Rise up Little Edgar, and return their compliment. Rest in Peace Little Edgar, Rest in Peace.

To the family and friends,
I would like to extend my deepest sympathies. Losing a loved on is the hardest thing in life. I am writing to not only express my sorrow for you but to let you know about a memorial I am working on. I am creating a quilt to honor the fallen soldiers from the New York City Area. Each soldier will have a panel created. I am inviting the friends and families to get involved. If you are interested or would like some more information please contact me at nycfallensoldiers@yahoo.com

I know you wouldn’t want anyone to mourn over your absence but it’s just not the same knowing you’re not coming back. But I know you’re watching over us and deep in my heart, you’ll always be around. In a heartbeat you were taken away, no time to say good-bye. How could it be? You were so young, so innocent. The question is why? But God only knows why. My heart still aches in sadness and these secret tears still flow hoping that this will still be a nightmare that how I’d wish to wake up soon. There are times when I wish you were here but Heaven has called you home safely away from the pain and sufferings that you will no longer face. Memories of your voice makes my soul weak, through my heart your love continues to guide me to where I can find peace that you’re in a better place now. I know you’re shining that big “kool-aide” smile down upon us. I still remember like it was yesterday, the first time I met you, your smile was such an unforgettable sight. Your laughter filled with pure joy and happiness. That’s how I’ll remember you, one who’s left footprints within the soul of my heart. Your amazing charm will surely be missed. I still recall our late night beach walk and how you’d say you were coming back to enjoy Hawaii’s paradise once again. We were just talking about our plans for when you return just the day before this all happened. It was something to look foward to and I still can’t believe how in an instant life took a wrong turn and you left so soon, too soon to even experience what life has to offer you. At least you were able to do what made you happy. Thank you for the great memories you've left behind. I'll always treasure those moments spent with you.

I miss you.
September 21, 2007
I did not know Le Ron but I know someone who knew him. I would like to extend my condolences to his family and hope they will someday find peace in his memories.
September 20, 2007
I will like to sincerely thank everyone who has submitted comments to this Guest Book regarding my Nephew Pfc. Le Ron Wilson.

For those who did not know him personally, you have missed an opportunity to meet an incredible human being.

Pfc. Le Ron Wilson was born to exceptional parents, namely Mr. Lawrence Wilson, my brother, and Ms. Simona Francis on the twin islands Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, in the West Indies. Their love for him is unlimited.

Le Ron was the type of rare individual who had such presence and humility that he can walk into any room and light it up. His Karma and Life-force was that extraordinary.

He was charming and loved to make everyone laugh and comfortable. Le Ron was at ease with everybody irregardless of their station in life.

As a child, Le Ron was fearless and obedient, and loved his parents and family dearly, and we loved him.

He grew up to be a man who knew what he wanted in life and sought to achieve it. He loved serving his fellowman and making them happy.

Le Ron always wanted to continue serving humanity, and he saw his opportunity in his adopted country of America by joining the Armed Services. It was while serving in Iraq he was called for another mission on 6th July 2007 by the Almighty God.

When I initially heard the news of his passing, the pain was unbelievably excruciating. It still hurts every time I think of him, which is every quiet moment. He has left us too soon, but I console myself in the knowledge that the Almighty God has called him home for a reason.


Rest in Peace my Nephew.

I love you and miss you.

In one fell swoop is lost a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew, a comedian, a classmate, a colleague, a brilliant mind, a prankster and a friend.
We remember you, Le Ron, for all the the joy, the fun and the love that you brought into our lives, even in the very short time that was spent.
September 19, 2007
I'm really glad that we got to know each other and spend some time together when you came home on vacation.
We sure did have a lot of fun as cousins hanging out together.
Miss you, LeRon!!
September 19, 2007
I still cant believe it. Le Ron was supposed to be immortal. I remember my last conversation with him. I begged him to hide when he heard gunshots and to never volunteer for anything dangerous. He kept on telling me he would be okay, how he would be back. I told him he had to be back with both hands so that I could beat him in Halo. He told me he would be okay and laughed. The last time we saw each other, which was back in 2005 we cried like babies because i think our souls knew it was the last time we would see each other. Le Ron you were not just my cousin, you were my big brother and someone I always looked up to. I would do anything for Le Ron to be back but I know that there is nothing i could do. So now I just live my life right so I could see my brother again. I even entered a national videogame tournament and won for Le Ron. I really believe he was there with me during the tournament and he was happy and proud that i did it for him. We will never play Halo in this life, but one day i hope that i will meet my brother in heaven and we could play up there. I love you Le Ron, can't wait to see you again.
September 18, 2007
Le Ron was like a son to me and I will always love and cherish the memories I shared with him.
September 18, 2007
Every day that I wake up the first things that I see are your pictures and think, I can't wait for you to come home, then I remember and say to myself that I'm still having this terrible nightmare. I still can't believe that the little boy who used to make me take his asthma medicine lol, run into the counter constantly hitting his eyebrow and come up with the craziest schemes but can always put a smile on your face won't be coming home. I miss you so much. You and your cheesy smile. Dude what am I going to do now who is going to call me out of the blue making things all better? Who is going to be my date when I have to dress up and look like a 'pretty little girl'? One day I know that I will wake up and everything will be better and you will be there to play fight and keep me tough. I love you so much I wish there was something I could do to bring you back. Your memory is printed in my heart and Dude I'm going to let everyone know how awesome you are because I know that you are definitely indestructible. MUHAZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!
September 18, 2007
I want to thank your son. For his act of becoming a member of the forces that keep us free and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memory of all those who knew him.
"No greater gift has a man than one who lays down his life for another!"

May GOD be with you
September 17, 2007
I would like to extend my condolences to the Francis and Wilson family for the loss of their loved one LeRon. I know that you are missing him very much, but know that he is now in God's arms and looking down on you all. You should be very proud of this young man for his selfless sacrifice and bravery. I did not know him but I am very proud of him. You raised a wonderful and strong young man. Rest in Peace Angel (that is what he is now)

If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane, all who loved you, whom you touched with your friendship would have walked right up to heaven and bring you home again.
Oh death, be not proud.

WE LOVED YOU, BUT GOD LOVED YOU MORE. REST IN PEACE IN GOD'S ARMS

Dear Wilson Family,

I know I should have written sooner for that I apologize.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I am the mother of SPC Thomas J Graham who served along side with PFC Wilson. My son was in the turret when the IED detonated their humvee. He did survive but lost both of his legs below the knees and is now recovering at WRAMC in DC.

My son speaks very highly of PFC Wilson. He says he was one of the greatest guys he ever had the honor to work with. He also misses him terribly, and hopes someday he can meet your family.

God speed PFC Le Ron A Wilson
September 15, 2007
...He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Peace to all who know Le Ron A. Wilson
September 15, 2007
Dear Wilson and Francis Family,
Please accept our condolences and prayers. Our daughter had the pleasure and honor of serving with your son, Le Ron, in the 3rd ID in Iraq. She said that he was not only a Good Soldier, but an awesome, fine young man. Know that our family continues to pray for your family.
Bless You all,
The Cabral Family

To PFC Le Ron Wilson’s family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
September 13, 2007
Many days and nights have passed. I did not know Le Ron but this is for his family the ones still crying themselves to sleep at night, he is not forgotten. I keep all of the names of our fallen soldiers printed out on my refrigerator and add to it when necessary. This is my daily reminder, to pray and always remember. I am still praying for all of you.
September 13, 2007
Words cannot express just how much this loss has affected a lot of friends and family members that knew Le Ron. Although I had not seen or spoken to Le Ron since high school, the news hit hard. I still thought of him when reflecting on the days gone by. He was always that bright spot and never a dull moment occurred when he was around. Le Ron will always be remembered as a true friend and an exceptional person. I feel honored to say that I was a friend & got to know such a wonderful, compassionate and caring gentleman.
September 13, 2007
"No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness."

Personally, I was never given the chance to know Le Ron but from what I've learned from those that cared about him, he was fun-loving and caring and an exceptional friend. His presence will be missed but his soul will forever continue to live in the hearts of all those that he has touched while he was here. I'd like to thank him for his sacrifice and offer my condolences to his family and friends.
September 12, 2007
To the family and friends of Pfc. Le Ron A. Wilson. I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you. There are no words to take away the pain you feel. Just know that others share your pain and sorrow. R.I.P.Pfc. Le Ron A. Wilson you are my hero and you will never be forgotten. - connie

Private First Class Wilson, soldier, hero.
To serve is a soldiers' sacrifice.
Heroes all, soldiers mission,
Some will die for freedom's sake.

Duty to serve, duty to risk,
to run the gauntlet, his life for country.
He paid the price for our security.
The ultimate cost for freedom's sake.

Families pride though little solace.
Sacrificed... their son for country.
His parents are home-side heroes.
Their hearts are torn between grief and pride.

Patriot lives cost, born America.
Fallen soldier joins freedom's greats.
We citizens grieve each price of life.
Patriot life paid to secure the USA.

In the long and honored history of America
There are names that shine like beacons in the night
The Patriots whose vision gave us meaning
Who kept the lamp of freedom burning bright

In the long and honored history of America
There are those that paid the last and final price
Who were called upon by chance, or desperate circumstance
To make the ultimate sacrifice

A grateful nation bows its head in sorrow
And in thanks for guaranteeing our tomorrow
The last full measure of devotion
That's what they gave to the cause

The last full measure of devotion
And though they cannot hear our applause
We honor them forever and keep alive their story
Pay tribute to their lives and give them all the glory

The last full measure of devotion
Beyond the call of duty were their deeds
The last full measure of devotion
They gave themselves to serve the greater need

And for those who did survive
And came back home alive
They join in praise of comrades who were slain
And highly resolved, most highly resolved
That these dead shall not have died in vain


On this the sixth anniversary of the reason for the war that took you away from us all, I would like to say thank you for being courageous and brave enough to want to do your part. We honor your commitment to freedom and your sacrifice for us all. We know you served with the best of the best. We honor your last full measure of devotion. Please believe that your sacrifice was not in vain and we will never forget you or what you stood for. You are greatly missed each and everyday. You will never be forgotten.
September 11, 2007
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten . You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives.
September 10, 2007
Your loved one has left this world
And has taken that Heavenly flight
It's supper-time there in Heaven
Where there's no parting nor night.

It was difficult to say "good-bye"
To the one you loved so very much
Trust in God and His divine plan
We hope you feel His gentle touch.

We pray God will Comfort you
And send Angels from above
Giving sweet peace within your heart
Surrounding you with Eternal Love.

We are sorry for your deep loss
There's so little we can find to say
You are in our thoughts and prayers
As we grieve with you today.

With Our Heartfelt Sympathy
September 10, 2007
You passed over to a special place
where you can kiss my nannas face
And you will be never again alone
because my grandad welcomes you home

You left me here, but i'll not cry
because i know this isnt goodbye
Its simply freedom from lifes pain
until the time i can see you again
September 10, 2007

Le Ron'
The words I want to say are so hard to come out, but you know by now how much you are missed and the Great message you have sent to all who met and knew you in your journey in your life. You are talked about as a great soldier and your time in the army you made a very great impression of who you are and have touched a lot of hearts. Your Mom could not have been more proud. There is a great void in her life without you and I know at night in silence she speaks to you and weeps for you. God will be her strength for she too has given herself to everyone needs and share her heart to everyone in her reach. May God Bless and keep you. May his light shine around you and give you peace.

Love Always

To Le Ron's family I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the sacrifice you have given. It seems unfair that you had to lose so much. I hope and pray that time has and will continue to heal your pain.
September 09, 2007
Your loss is felt by many whom you do not know. I hope it brings comfort to realize that your loved one and the tragedy that led to his death will never be forgotten.
You are in our thoughts and hearts forever. To lose a love one is the most difficult thing to deal with. Please remember that our prayers and love go out to you everyday to help give you strength and to know you are never alone.
September 08, 2007
Hi Baby,

It took a while for me to be ready to do this.

You always told me about my good deeds. I remember you saying to me one day, "Mom, one of my teachers told me that for each good deed a person does, God gives them a piece of wood towards building their house in heaven. I think your house is completed."

Now baby, I think I know why that house was built, I believe it was for you to have a home in heaven where you can wait for me when I get home. I can hardly wait until we meet again, my loving son.

Love always,
Mom.
September 08, 2007
Hi Le Ron,
I miss you so much. I will always love you, big brother.

You are my Hero!!!

Love,
Nick
September 07, 2007
The Nation will always remember who you were
We know that you were met by Angels at Heavens door
Although we think it was not fair that you had to die
We will always remember your courage sweet hero of our time
Buried in the land that you vowed to protect
Your dedication and bravery we will not forget

WHAT HEROS GAVE

Each donned their uniform to be
Defenders of our liberty

Their mission sure, their spirits bright
Guard freedom’s home, be brave to fight

One final day each faced their call
Each gave their best enduring all

We’ll never know what they went through
But know they loved this country true

Deep down inside we should all feel
What heroes gave, their cost so real
We must stay thankful, grateful of
The gift of freedom through their love

Their loved ones bore the gravest pain
What we can’t know, some now sustain

To God I pray their pain will cease
And each will find long-lasting peace

Remember this from year to year
What heroes gave – shan’t disappear

We’ll never let their special day
Their time for honor slip away

These brave fought for a nation free
If not for them, where would we be?
September 07, 2007
True Heroes Never Die

Everyday leads to another
Each one different from the other
Sometimes life don't seem fair
It's a game of do or dare
But true heroes never die
They just leave before good-bye
Hi Ho Silver away
We'll meet again someday
Legends live on and on
You were the unknown phenomenon
It's funny how time slipped by
Like the blink from a teary eye
I see you face in the full moon
Sometimes your voice fills the room
You are my true hero
Your light forever glows
September 06, 2007
we weren't prepared for you to go
you were too full of life to be
taken away from us so soon
it's still hard to believe

how much we'll miss your smile
and your laughter in our ears
your absence leaves a hole in us
we're filling with our tears

you taught us how to be our best
to in the moment live
to never hold a grudge for long
and loyal friendship give

we didn't get to say goodbye
we're devasted that you are gone
we would have done anything to keep you here with us
right here where you belong

we didn't know life would take
such an unexpected path
that you'd be separated from us so soon
heartbreaking reality we struggle to grasp

and bitter though our losing you has been
and so profound is the pain that we bear
We're sadder still at no chance for goodbye
no final expression of our deep love and care

yet believing that you are not too far away
that your spirit still lingers quite near
we'll say our goodbyes in our words and thoughts
trusting that each one you'll hear

first, know that you are loved in the truest of ways
so deep that only our hearts can give expression
you'll be forever surrounded by our love
for we're sending it straight to Heaven

please know that you'll be cherished by each one of us
for your example and kindness we'll treasure
we understand now how your life was a gift
that was meant to bless us forever

and though we'll miss you terribly
we want your Spirit to be free
free to enjoy the wonders of Heaven
not bound to us in grief

so watch over us with happiness fror Heaven. . .

Rest in Peace Le Ron.

OUR GIFT TO THE FALLEN SOLDIER

For each soldier that has fallen so that many may stand
We honor their spirit as they pass to God's hand
For without their sacrifice we would live forever in fear
We pray for their loved ones and provide a salute and a tear
God help us heal the wounds of hate and the misery of war
That is our gift to our fallen heroes that are amongst us no more.
September 05, 2007
The Lord bless you and keep you...the Lord make His face to shine upon you. My deepest gratitude for the ultimate sacrifice for our Country's freedom. You are truly a hero and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
September 05, 2007
I wish to express my deepest sympathies to you and yours. Please know that there are people out here who do care and your HERO will never be forgotten as he is our HERO too. Hold tight to your memories.
September 05, 2007
Though I must leave you for a little while
Please do not grieve and shed a tear
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near
And never, never be afraid to die
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
September 05, 2007
When I come to the end of the day
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we once shared -
Miss me, but let me go.

For this journey we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all a part of the Maker's plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me, but let me go.
September 05, 2007
We grieve for you in silence
And try so not to show.
But what it meant to lose you
No one will ever know.
You wished no one a farewell
Or even a goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why.
A unselfish heart stopped beating
And you were laid to rest.
Gog broke our hearts
to prove to us
He only takes the BEST.

REMEMBER ME

Remember me as your son
When you used to doctor my bumps

Remember me playing in the dirt
Remember me crying when I would get hurt

Remember walking to get my diploma
Remember arguing and saying I'm gonna

Remember me as a man doing my job
Remember me and please don't sob.

I did what I had to do no matter what
I was heavily trained and I fought

No regrets as I am in a wonderful place
Remember me when you look at my purple heart in your glass case.

As this poem says just remember Le Ron, remember all the good times. He went doing exactly what made him happy, it was his "dream job". Being a Soldier was one of the things he most wanted.

Always in my prayers
August 31, 2007
I STAND BEFORE YOU

I stand before you all today
But not one eye can see my way

My time arrived, to leave this earth
A fact so planned, to every birth

It happened where I had to go
My torch for life was so aglow

I transferred while in uniform
Protecting freedom, through a storm

Should I resent I died for you
Not on my life, red white and blue

Please help my family through each day
Tell all my friends, try not to stray

And of the country I did love
Do think of me, through God above

Your memories, brought forth this day
Send love to us, who could not stay

Le Ron, not a day goes by that you are not thought of. Never to be forgotten. Your memory will live on.
August 31, 2007
Sometimes it seems as if the pain will never end, but it will dull one day, in the meantime hold on to your memories of Le Ron. Remember he is up above looking out for all of you and waiting for the day you will all be together again.
August 31, 2007
I did not know your soldier and I do not know you but I feel your pain. I want to thank you for your sacrifice.
August 30, 2007
Each time I hear that someone has died I feel a pain so deep inside I feel so bad all I do is cry... and I keep asking myself why? or what if ....could I have made a difference, yet with all this doubt, and pain I know nothing will ever be the same however; I have no doubt they are all in heaven up above also with them goes all our love.......
August 30, 2007
There is no greater loss than a child taken too soon. My prayers are with you. Celebrate his life and the time he was here. Never foget him and keep his memory alive. We will always remember those who were lost.
August 30, 2007
Thank you brave soldier for your selfless sacrifice for the freedom of others. I am deeply grateful and profoundly humbled by your courageous service to our great nation and others in need. May God bless your loved ones and bring them peace and comfort. Your courage is a mark on our hearts forever.
August 29, 2007
To the precious family of Le Ron specially to his mother;
My heart goes with you, I know your pain. It will not be easy but it will be better. Our condolences to your family for your loss. I know that life isn't fair, That's a hard thing to find out, but sooner or later everyone does, Still I always feel sad and disappointed when someone like you or me has to face such a difficult time. You didn't cause it, you didn't deserve it., and there's no easy way to fix it. you simply have to live through it., I know, because I've been there and still there. What happen to you, to us, isn't fair, But, I believe someday you, we , will discover there's a meaning in it, a meaning that will have a purpose in your, my, life you can't even imagine right now. Hold on to this thoughts untill then. Know that those who care about you will be right by your side. GOD blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Matthew5:4
Even as you read this words, many prayers are said for you. Prayers that the one that you loved so much will find rest in heaven... and prayers that you and your family will find peace and healing in your own time. May GOD's peace be with you and your family as you mourn.
Le Ron, my Hero. Thank you for the services and sacrifices you have given us and this country. Without you guys, who are we, and where are we/ What will freedom means? Thank you.

To those who knew PFC Le Ron A. Wilson,

I read all of the tributes to your fallen son and loved one. I recommend that all who come here take a few moments to read everything about PCF Le Ron A. Wilson.

I never knew your son, but I will think about him and pray for him.

Thank you, Mike Kowalczyk

Wilson,

Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I can honestly admit life would not have been the same if I hadn’t met you. You have been an amazing friend and an amazing person and for that I thank you so much. I know we had our ups and downs, mainly for extremely stupid reasons, but knowing that we put all that behind us and continued to keep a great friendship is more than I could have asked for. I owe you so much for everything you’ve done, and being there for me. Thank you so much for the memories. We’ve done so much together, football, road trip to PA, hanging out at school, and just doing what we do best, being teenagers. I’ll never forget you bro, you will always be in my heart and you will always be by my side. I know you’re in a better place now and I’ll definitely see you soon. Love you Duster, R.I.P.

-*Merlin*

Ms. Francis, Mr. Wilson, Nicky… and to all of Le Ron’s Family,

No words can ever describe how much this has hurt all over us, and I am very, very sorry for your loss. Just know that he is in a better place looking down on all of us and still watching out for us like he always did. Ms Francis and Mr. Wilson, I just want to say Thank you for raising such an amazing son and I know you both are very proud of Le Ron. He was and will always be a hero to all of us and it was a pleasure being able to become close friends with him. Just know if there is anything you need I am always here.

Love,
Corey

I have always been taught that all things happen for a reason. After all these years after September 11, 2001, I still do not see a reason for this. I do know that God is still in control of ALL and someday we will understand it better. May we always look to Him for our guidance. May He continue to bless your family and all Americans.
August 28, 2007
The bible tells us that to be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord. Therefore we live with the hope that after all the toils and strifes of life are over, we will live with God forever.
August 28, 2007
We will never forget & you will forever be in our hearts. I pray every day for the ones left behind and although I did not know your loved one personally, I share your pain and loss.
August 28, 2007
I don't know if anything can ease the pain you all must feel after losing your loved one. Try and take comfort in knowing how many people have your family in thought and prayer. God Bless you all.
August 28, 2007
Rest in Peace. May you family find peace in the memories of you.
August 27, 2007
To the family and friends of Pfc. Le Ron A. Wilson. We were so saddened to hear of the loss of one of our own American Heros. Although we did not know your loved one personally, we still feel for your loss. God Bless him always for the courageous battle that took his life here on earth. We as Americans, will forever be proud of our serviceman.
August 27, 2007
Thank you for your service and for your sacrifice. You are truly an American hero, and will not be forgotten. May God give your family peace and understanding.
August 27, 2007
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. May you find comfort in knowing that Le Ron's bravery and willingness to serve his Country will never go unnoticed. Because of him, and many other soldiers, we are able to live the "American Dream"...FREEDOM.
Thank you for raising such a brave and wonderful young man.
August 27, 2007
Thank you for your service to our country and keeping me and my family safe, secure and free - You paid the ultimate price for my freedom with your life and I am forever grateful - A simple thank you seems so little at a time like this. God Bless you and all who knew you.
August 27, 2007
Another fallen soldier;

I want to say first of all how proud of this young man I am and I'm so very sorry for his family's loss. I want the family to know that I am very proud of each and every person who fights for our rights here and gives us the freedom to live like we live.

August 25, 2007
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family of Pfc. Le Ron Adrian Wilson. His strength, thoughtfulness and life are a reflection of the type of person that Simona is. She raised a man in a world that is hard to live in today. When you think of Le Ron remember all the great times as there were many. I cannot realize the pain that you and Lawrence are in due to the loss of Le Ron because only another parent can realize that pain, but my heart cries every night for you both. He is a special person and will forever be missed. We will never forget you Pfc. Le Ron Wilson. You touched more lives than you can ever know. Hope to see you on the other side.

Love Yanique
August 25, 2007
To the family of this fine hero, my prayers are with you and your family during this time of sorrow.
Rest in peace Soldier
August 25, 2007
We are so sorry for your loss and want you to know we are keeping you in our prayers. Le Ron was a hero and will always be remembered and missed. God Bless you and your family.
August 25, 2007
My friend, you are truely a hero, not because you died the way you did, you are a hero because of the way you lived. We miss you bud, I know you are still flying with us all. A great one is gone, but not forgotten, I will see you again....
August 25, 2007
I did not know Le Ron but my God-Brother, Justin was very good friends with him. I just want to say Rest in Peace Le Ron and may your family find peace in your memories as time goes on. You are greatly missed I am sure. Thank you for your sacrifice.
August 25, 2007
My grief for the loss of you son is felt, as I know what it's like to lose your child in war, as my Step-Son; Robert Thrasher, was killed on 2/11/07 in Iraq.

Your tears will turn from sorrow, to frustration to anger.

And you may blame or wonder what if…

But it was God’s will and whether Le Ron had been there or somewhere else it would have happened.

One day hopefully you can let go of the past and move towards the future (something I still can’t do yet) and tell yourself that Le Ron is gone, but not forgotten.

And thanks to his friend; Althea Barrett, he won’t be. As she took a moment to introduce me to him, and he is now a person in whom although I never met, I can now never forget.

And I only realized that as she took time to think of my Step-Son.

You see no matter how many tomorrows we have, every day someone will think of Le Ron’s yesterdays.

Thank you for allowing me to see what a truly remarkable person your son; Le Ron A. Wilson, truly was and will always be in our memories.
August 24, 2007
My Brother they are not Afraid of Who or What we are,But of What we will Become.....R.I.P. Brother Le Ron A. Wilson.

May God be with you in this time of sorrow. We are all very proud of our troops and will NEVER forget the ones that gave their life for our country. Thank you for raising a boy to be a man that would go to fight a war for our cause and others rights and safety. What a handsome young man
August 24, 2007

To the family of Le Ron Wilson. He gave the ultimate sacrifice and will be held in the hearts of Americans forever. I cannot and will not let our fallen heroes be forgotten. My deepest sympathy to you. "Some gave all."

Your family chain has been broken and nothing seems the same;
But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.
May your family and friends find peace until you meet again.

Rest in Peace Le Ron.

The future Godparent to my kids as I was to yours.

We went through so much didn't we? I will never forget the sound of your mom voice when she called me that Saturday morning. It was suppose to be the luckiest day. It wasn't.

I know your up there watching over us. I know your in a safe place now.

I am a stranger but I want to write a THANK YOU for your brave warrior who stepped forward to make a difference in our continued freedoms. I am sad you have lost you precious, handsome and brave child. Thank you for having shared him with the world.
August 22, 2007
As a humble American I would like to thank Le Ron and his family for the ultimate sacrifice you have so unselfishly made on behalf of all Americans. May God be with you all as this American Hero returns home and is crowned a hero while being laid to rest. It is my prayer that not one day will go by that you remember there are millions of Americans who will be eternally grateful and will not forget your son's or your sacrifice and are honored and proud to have men such as your son defending their freedom. May the many thoughts and prayers of all grateful Americans raise you up in the future days to come. God Bless American and especially the military and their families.

August 20, 2007
You were such a precious gift from God above with so much spirit and love. You touched my heart in so many ways. That special smile so bright that brought so much happiness even on those bad days.

You heard God's whisper calling you home, I'm sure you didn't want to go and leave us here all alone knowing our world would feel empty without your presence.

You were loved by so many while promises were made for your safety home. You must of held on tight till all the strength was gone and you could no longer fight no more. Though I wished you didn't have suffered that long for you did not deserve any of it.

It broke everyone's hearts to lose you, yet you did not go alone. A part of us went with you, the day God called you to heaven.

You left us peaceful memories that will always be treasured in our hearts and through your love, you'll be our angel shining from above.

Although we cannot see you, I know you're always at our side. It's like our chain has been broken the day you were given everlasting peace in the eternal world. Nothing seems to be the same no more.

But as God calls us one by one, that chain will link again and eventually we'll be reunited once more. So until then, we'll live in your honor for you have laid your life for us.

We all miss you back in Hawaii. Love you always....

My heartfelt condolences goes out to all his loved ones. May you have peace and comfort in your hearts to get through this difficult time.

"We go through life so often,
Not stopping to enjoy the day.
And we take each one for granted,
As we travel on our way.

For in your pain and sorrow,
An Angel’s Kiss will help you through,
This kiss is very private,
For it is meant for only you.

We never stop to measure,
Anything we just might miss.
But if the wind should blow by softly,
You’ll feel an Angel Kiss.

A kiss that is sent from heaven,
A kiss from up above.
A kiss that is very special,
From someone that you love.

So when, your hearts are heavy,
And filled with tears and pain.
And no one can console you,
Remember once again.

About the one you grieve for,
Because you sadly miss.
And the gentle breeze you took for granted,
Was just an Angel’s Kiss."

We Remember Them

In the rising of the sun
And in its going down,
We remember them.
In the blowing of the wind
And in the chill of winter,
We remember them.
In the opening of the buds
And in the rebirth of spring,
We remember them.
In the rustling of the leaves
And in the beauty of the autumn,
We remember them.
In the beginning of the year
And when it ends,
We remember them.
When we are weary
And in need of strength,
We remember them.
When we are lost and sick at heart,
We remember them.
When we have joys we yearn to share,
We remember them.
So long as we live,
They too shall live,
For they are now a part of us,
As we remember them.
August 17, 2007
As we offer prayers for your family in this time of sorrow, we will also offer prayers of thankfulness for the work and sacrifice of your loved one.

Dear MS. Simona Francis,

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear son, Le Ron. It is with a heavy heart that I write this entry to a book that I can only hope gives you some comfort during the very difficult days ahead. We too lost a young member of our family in combat so very far from home. Though we are proud, as you must be, we grieve as you do. We are joined together by our pride and our grief. At times the grief is foremost. I will not be trite and thank you for your son's sacrifice because the days ahead are bound to very hard... as we try to get accustomed to life without our loved ones. I pray that God helps you find the strength to make it through and to cope with such a loss. We are with you, grieve with you, and pray for you.
Althea Barret signed my nephew's guest book and told us of your loss.
Simona, though we have never met, please accept my deepest sympathies; I am so sorry for your loss. He sounds like a great kid. May your memories of LeRon and your love for him, help you find the strength to live life without him.

Best Always, Stella
August 16, 2007

“It took a Hero”
By Sgt Jeff Burney
2BCT 3ID

It takes strength of character and drive
Love unending and the devotion to survive
The will to embrace instead of disregard
Power to overcome when it seems too hard

I guess that’s why it takes a hero
To make us all see
That’s why it takes a hero
To make us all believe
When that bugle calls
For sacrificing all
We remember
It took a hero

It takes compassion to lend a hand
To persevere and to take a stand
Direction when all is lost
Undaunted to pay the cost

I guess that’s why it takes a hero
To make us all see
That’s why it takes a hero
To make us all believe
When that bugle calls
For sacrificing all
We remember
It took a hero
August 16, 2007
I am saddened by the loss of your child. I extend to all of you my deepest sympathy. I cannot imagine the sadness of losing a child. I pray that somehow God takes you through this. I pray the Lord comforts you, sustains you, and strenghtens you during this time. Your child has been a blessing to all. May he rest in peace.
August 16, 2007
I salute your bravery and your service to your country. You stood head and shoulders above those who would turn coward and run and hide when called upon to serve a cause as much larger than yourself. Le Ron, you have shown yourself to be a man of character and commitment. Your's was a very tough job, but you chose to stand to it stoutly. Rest assured that the Almighty God has a special place for you in heaven. I offer my deepest condolences and sympathies to your Mom and Dad. I can only imagine the depth of your feelings and loss and sadness. I ask God to give you the strength to get through this. May you rest in eternal peace and confort, Private First Class Le Ron A. Wilson.
August 16, 2007
As I read the stories of Le Ron my heart goes out to his family and friends. I look at this young man and become happy. He should be a shining example to the youth in the world today. Much respect to Le Ron, may your soul rest in peace. To Ms. Francis and Mr. Wilson, be strong and stand proud, you did a wonderful job in raising a strong and confident young man.
August 16, 2007

My heart goes out to this little hero's family and friends. May his soul rest in peace.
August 16, 2007
I'm saddened to hear of Le Ron's death. My prayers go out to the family. I know that it is difficult to lose a child. . .but I must say that Le Ron was a mature and dedicated 18 year old. Le Ron died protecting his country and fighting for what is right. I am proud of him and may God bless his soul.
August 16, 2007
My sincere condolences ot this soldier's family. May his soul rest in peace.
August 16, 2007
Finding joy in remembering, sharing happy memories, smiling through the tears, one day finding peace, you will get through this.
August 15, 2007
It was just 10 years ago, when I met Le Ron with his father. He certainly wasn't shy and had plenty of questions to ask when he learnt I was not from Trinidad. He was bright.

Finding out the news about his death, was unbelievable. The 7-8 year old little boy I met way back when is gone. Never even got the chance to see him again after all this time.

However, in speaking to your Dad, you achieved a lot and made your family proud.

Rather than mourn the absence of the flame, let us celebrate how brightly it glowed.

Le Ron will always be in our hearts.

Something about his face has stuck with me since the first time I saw it. It is a face of love, confidence, wisdom, and life. I never met Le Ron and I feel like I missed out on knowing one the greatest people that walked this earth. To his parents, family, and friends may GOD be with you all. I will NEVER forget PFC Le Ron A. Wilson

I never knew your son, but I know so many like him, strong and proud. I am deeply sorry for your loss. He left this world too early and with so much to offer. He will be truly missed.
August 15, 2007
When I read the stories of your son's sacrifice I cried as if he was my own son. The pain I felt for the lost of such a young life in a war that seems to have no end is too much to bear. I pray and hope that it will end very soon and that no more young men like your Le Ron will have to pay the ultimate price. Be very, very proud of him, because I am. May his soul rest in peace and his memories live on.
August 15, 2007
Thank you for Le Ron's service to our country and the sacrifice he made. You should be very proud of him, that at such a young age he knew what he wanted out of life and went after it. He is a Hero to us all.
August 15, 2007
Thank you Pfc. Wilson for your service to our country. I am forever grateful. To your family...I am sorry for your loss. Another TRUE HERO! I promise not to forget.

I want to express my condolences in the untimely death of your son. This is a "time to weep," says the Bible (Ecclesiastes 3:1,4) and surely the loss of your son brings such a time. Yet through prayer you can recover from this with the wonderful memories of your son always in your heart. Prayer simply makes us feel better and also will provide you with "power beyond what is normal," (2 Corinthians 4:7). Please be comforted knowing that God's holy spirit, or active force is with you.
August 15, 2007
God is cradling your son in his arms right now. Thank you for raising such a fine young man who was willing to lay down his life for his country. Bless you all.

A child who loses a parent is called an "orphan",
A husband who loses his wife a "widower" and
A wife that loses a husband a "widow"
But there is no name for a parent who loses a child.
Your child is suppose to bury you not you buring your child.
So sorry for your loss, may his soul rest in peace.
August 14, 2007
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.

Our lives are like a blade of green grass that are green today, and unexpectionally tomorrow it withers and fades away.Only our heavenly father can restore our grass again through the resurrection as John the fifth chapter verses twenty eight and twenty nine says. May this scripture bring some comfort to the family.
August 14, 2007
I am so sorry for your tragic loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow and lost. Please, know that I am thinking of you all and wish you the best. Again, I am sorry. In peace, love, and friendship;

August 13, 2007
To the family of PFC. Wilson,

We understand what you are experiencing and feeling. No amount of words can ease the pain of your loss. We know firsthand there are no words of comfort at this time. We lost our only son 9~3~2004 at the age of 19 and it fells like yesterday. Just know that there are Marine families across the USA who is experiencing your loss and pain.

May he rest in peace knowing that he was loved and remembered by those who knew him as well as strangers who admired his courage and sacrifice? My deepest condolences, sympathy and prayers go out to the entire family. May God grant you peace, strength and comfort. I will keep your family in my prayers along with all the families of our American Hero’s. Another Fallen Hero ~~ Thank you.

LeRon, My family and I are thankful for the Bravery, Courage, Determinination and Service to fight for our country (our freedom), from you, my son and all the others in our armed forces for the sacrifice made for us. You all will not be forgotten. We also have a Marine daughter and Marine son-in-law. We are proud of all of you.

I still fly my Marine flag and have my Marine tag and sticker on my vehicles because I'm PROUD of my SON, my DAUGHTER and ALL THOSE Service MEN & WOMEN out there. I will always be a MARINE.

Once a Marine, Always a Marine!
Yesterday, Today, Forever – Semper Fi - Marines!

I too lost not one but two dear friends in this war. My heart goes out to all of Le Ron's family and friends who carry this terrible burden. I will never forget any of these young men and women who sacrificed so much for their country. Thank you for the entry on Ron Winchester's website. I'm sure that Ron and JP were at Heaven's Gate to greet Le Ron. Peace and blessings.

Le Ron, I know what kind of man it takes to join the military and have the courage to do what you did and what you did is not only honorable and couragous, but it was part of your Legacy. It shows the kind of young man you are and I am so proud of you and I hope that you and my son have met in heaven, as, I am sure you will be looking over your mother and father and family just as my Michael does. You will never be forgotten or appreciated. I would like to thank your mother for being so thoughtful to reach out to another Mother when her own pain is so difficult, but she must kmow that my heart goes out to her and to your family because I endure the same loss. But we are so blessed to have such wonderful sons. We will honor your memory in strength and not let weakness hurt us. You young men tought us so much about courage and now it is our turn to show you our courage, as it is a battle every day, but like you, we will prevail and know that you are waiting for us at the gates of heaven. Stand tall and proud, and we will do the same for you all, Love, proud mom of Corporal,Michael J. Halal
August 10, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in these hard times. I can truly say I know how you feel since my son was killed in Iraq on Sept.25,2006 at age 21 nothing has been the same. I know our kids died defending our freedom which should ease the pain a little but unfortunetly it is not working for me and I don't think this pain will ever go away no matter how many years will pass. I pray for you and your family that it will get easier for you.
August 10, 2007
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
August 10, 2007
God bless you and your family
August 10, 2007
Thank you for the kind words left on my husband's legacy page (Army Staff Sgt. Brian S Hobbs K.I.A 10/14/2004), they were absolutely beautiful! God bless you and may the Lord bring you strength and courage through your grief. Also check out T.A.P.S the grief seminars are awesome!

I stare at the casket;
Draped with the nation's cloth.

I'm momentarily startled;
As the guns go off.

Another fallen soldier;
Being laid to rest.

I struggle to breathe;
For this tightness in my chest.

The bugler so smooth;
As he hits every note.

It is hard to swallow;
Because of this lump in my throat.

Tears fall like rain;
As I look to the sky.

No matter how many times I hear it;Taps still makes me cry.

The bugle now silent;
As we pray for the dead.

I gather myself;
As I bow down my head.

Lord bless these heroes;
Who have given their lives.

Comfort their children;
Their husbands and wives.

Let us not forget;
They have given their all.

Let the bugle be silent;
Let no more soldiers fall.

Hey Le Ron,
I saw Mom and Nick on Tuesday, 8/7/07 and she is doing great, smiling while we talked about you. She is missing you like crazy but knows you are with her always. She gave me a cup with the picture of you, Justin, Joel and Derrick - a gift I will always treasure.
Well gotta go. Keep watching over us all.
August 09, 2007
As we offer prayers for your family in this time of sorrow, we will also offer prayers of thankfulness for the work and sacrifice of your loved one.
Thank You PFC Le Ron A. Wilson.

Please accept our sympathy for your loss, and our prayers that God sustain you in this time of sorrow. We are ever thankful for the work and sacrifice of your Soldier and will honor his memory by keeping him and your family in our prayers.

When I was younger I would have this reoccurring dream. I was running through grass fields up and over a hill. The sky was gloomy and dark gray. My white dress flowed behind me leaving a flashing white streak in the sky. Once I got to the edge of the hill, there was a cloud of mist and all that was left was a sword staked in the ground.

I had a wonderful imagination as a child. I always pictured I was a princess in another life. Never did I think that it was a piece to a puzzle of which life is.

Life has many paths, I believe that now more then ever. I fulfilled my destiny, which was to fall in love with my soul mate have a child and live in his honor. He left his mark on this world, his name will never be forgotten and his HEROISM will always be remembered.

My husband SPC Jose Ruiz KIA in Mosul, Iraq 8/15/05 was a swordsman. He had only 3 weeks to come home to his family. He only saw his only daughter once on his two week leave, when she was 2 months old. I buried him with his sword but before I placed his sword in his hands. I knelt before his grave and prayed to our Lord in heaven to embrace him in his arms and protect us. That was the sword, I saw in my dreams as a child. Now, I understand. Love, Honor, Respect!!!

Although there is a piece of you’re puzzle missing. See your best to still SEE the bigger picture.

Your son will never be forgotten; he is a TRUE AMERICAN HERO!!! You are blessed and have an angel on your side.

Some people come and leave this earth, without even knowing what their purpose is. Your son is a prince in my eyes, because he selflessly gave of himself. I salute him and your family.

Love always Lady Ruiz
August 09, 2007
My condolences to your family and friends. Although we never met, I learned a little bit about you from the media. In my eyes you are truly an American Hero. I praise your parents for raising such a wonderful human being and I cannot thank you enough for your service to this country. I was deeply saddened when I heard the news and was moved when I learned more about the person you were and what you lived for. I cannot say more than Thank You and God Bless
August 08, 2007
Father we entrust our brother Le Ron to your mercy. You loved him greatly in this life: now that he is freed from all its cares, give him happiness and peace forever. Welcome him now into paradise where there will be no more sorrow, no more weeping or pain, but only peace and joy with Jesus your Son, and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
May God hold Le Ron in the palm of His hand. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My deepest sympathy.
August 08, 2007
To the family of my best friend,

Le Ron was a very good friend, he was always there wher you needed him, he may have been late sometimes, but he was still there. I'm going to miss him alot. We we're suppose to retire from this job together, all 4 of us. I hope you know that I will always be here for you guys, your like a second family to me. Le Ron will always be with us, but now we'll never know when hes late.

May the Light of our Savior Jesus Christ forever shine upon you. Love always.

Your son and mine were bonded together as soldiers in the army. They also have one other thing in common in that they were doing something they wanted to do, and both left this earth on the same day doing this.
Your family and mine are now both bonded as one in the Gold Star Family.
We feel your pain, jsut as you do ours and we will pray for you and your family to get you through these hard times.

I don't pretend to know what to say that would bring you peace in this time of need, but I will pray for your family. I pray that Le Ron's smile, his voice as he laughs at a joke, and his spirit which still lives, brings you comfort in the weeks, months, and years to come!

Rest assured Le Ron will not be forgotten.

The memories of your son are treasures you will carry wherever you go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They will give you comfort when you think you are alone.

Yes, you have memories in your pocket, like so much other stuff you keep there.

But of all the treasures you have, it’s the memories of your son that are the most precious.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning, that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
August 07, 2007
So very sorry for your loss. May God Bless you and keep you in his care.
August 06, 2007
Sometimes we ask ourselves why? why? did this happen and the only one that can answer that is God, he knows why and one day you will know too but until then you will just hold on to the memories you have of your Soldier
August 06, 2007
I am so very sorry for your loss. I pray he will always be with you when you need him in your thoughts and dreams.

My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
August 02, 2007
My heartfelt sympathy to the Wilson and Francis families in the loss of Le Ron. I did not know Le Ron, but my heart is broken and I am saddened for your loss of such a fine young person and hero.

I send each of you a hug from the most inner part of my heart.

We thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new.

We thought about you yesterday
And days before that too.

We think of you in silence
We often speak your name.

Now all we have are memories
And your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake
With which we’ll never part.

God has you in his keeping
We have you in our hearts.

Three weeks past since the heart-breaking news revealed that another fallen soldier’s lifelong dream came to an end. Till this day, I refuse to believe that this all has happened. His youthful soul did not deserve to go too soon. Still a child, who went out into the battlefield to fight for what he believed in. This young soldier who we thought was coming home has instead received his wings to fly off to where there is no war, no pain and no suffering. A place where there is only love and light for he shall be our angel to guide the loved ones he left behind. He will now spend everlasting peace in another world where he will continue to fulfill his dreams. The wonderful memories he left behind will keep his spirit alive within all of us. He fought for our country while making the ultimate sacrifice to put his life on the line only to fight for what he believed was right. A true hero to us all and forever we’ll be grateful for his selfless acts of bravery.

Le Ron, thank you for all the great memories spent in Hawaii. You shall never be forgotten, you’ll always be missed, loved you always were by family, friends, especially me. Your humble heart gave way to greatness and you’ve made such a difference in the many lives you’ve touched even with the simple gestures you do. I’m proud of you for all you’ve done and I thank God for your presence in my life even if it was in a short lifetime, you were surely one of a kind. A loving soul that’s hard to find and simply impossible to forget. You had a heart of gold who lived every moment making memories as if there was no tomorrow. The world is not the same without your sweet smiles and unforgettable laughters. This shall not be a good-bye for I'll see you later.
July 29, 2007
I'm so sorry. My deepest sympathy go out to his family and friends. He will be missed.

July 27, 2007
Rest in peace and may God keep you wrapped in his arms.
July 27, 2007
Thank you for your willingness to defend the United States of America and all that we hold sacred. Though tears can never bring you back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that you made and our sorrow at your passing. You are truly a HERO and your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Your mission on earth is complete. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the heroes who have passed before.

Le Ron not a day goes by that I do not think about you, I still can not believe that you are gone. I read all the papers, I saw you in your casket and I saw them put you in your final resting place but my heart and mind still cannot believe that you are gone. Your passing felt like I lost my own child because you were like a brother to Justin. I know God had his reasons for calling you home but did he have to do it so soon. I will forever be grateful and feel blessed for having the pleasure of meeting and knowing you, I am just sad that I didn't get to know you better. I will say so long for now.

TOO SPECIAL TO EVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

Today is the tenth day since they laided him down and twenty days since he moved on, and yet still the grief is still heavy on my heart, God hear my cries....I will do anything to go back in time and change things, and although we all know that this is in God's plan...it still doesn't stop the pain...and I will never, a matter of fact, I refuse to recover from this, I refuse to move on...God give me strength.
July 26, 2007
Rest in peace. Gone too soon but will never be forgotten.
July 26, 2007
You left too soon, but GOD needed an ANGEL, so he took you home to reside with him and look after us.
July 26, 2007
Thank you for your sacrifice young man, it will always be remembered as will you.
July 26, 2007
Young HERO, I want to thank you for your courage and bravery in standing up for what you believe in. May your soul rest in peace.
July 25, 2007
I didn't personally know you or your family, but saw this terrible news in the online paper and felt compelled to say something! - Thank you for your service to our country and keeping me and my family safe, secure and free - You paid the ultimate price for my freedom with your life and I am forever grateful - A simple thank you seems so little at a time like this - I pray for the family and friends you left behind and hope that they can somehow find peace at this very difficult time - God Bless you and all who knew you.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I had to ask why, when I heard what happened to LeRon...
But someone responded...why not? A blessed soul like LeRon's, could dwell no where else but in heaven...the soils of this earth can harm him no more.
I love you LeRon, my baby cousin...may you rest in peace!

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

July 18, 2007

Please know how Deeply Sorry I am, for the loss of Pfc. Le Ron A. Wilson. As a parent, who has lost a daughter suddenly and having lost a brother to war...
I am aware of the deep and devastating pain that you are experiencing. The overwhelming heartache, that seems to surface through our shock, as the time passes.
Please hang on to your Faith and know that you will get through this.

May the memories of your Brave Young Soldier, remain in your heart always and give you strength through the difficult days ahead, and may Le Ron Rest Safely now, in the Loving Care of God and know that he Will Never Be Forgotten.
I pray that the Peace of God will be with the Wilson family.

I am the sister, of such a 19 year young Hero, who made the Ultimate Sacrifice in Vietnam, many years ago.

"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee."
~ Psalm 55:22 ~

I sincerely hope that you can feel the thoughts of caring and support that surround you today and in the days ahead, as this Grateful Country Mourns with you, for Someone Very Precious to you, Who Is A Hero to all of us.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

As the mother of a son (my only child) who is in the Army and deployed; I want to send my condolences.
July 09, 2007
To the Family and Friends of this Soldier:
I will stand in grief with this soldier's family to honor him. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life, but I promised Brent that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.
We lost our son SFC Brent A. Adams on 12/1/05 and it seems like yesterday. I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero.
God Bless this soldier and family who gave all and God Bless legacy.com for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.

Though this soldier is not yet known except to their unit or families, my grief for the loss of you son/daughter is felt. I know what it's like to loose your child in war as my son was killed in action too. It feels that your heart has been ripped from you and you don't understand why this happened to your child. I've felt all you will feel in the coming days and weeks and though I’m not close in relation to area, but I am very close by email. I offer any support to you and your family that I can. It's with the Grace of God that I've gotten through each day and with His healing love and comfort that I've been able to once again sleep at night and not cry each day. Believe me I do know how hard it is. May God continue to heal you and your family and contact me when and if you are ever ready, even if it's to vent or cry.

Know in your heart that you are a true hero and will never be forgotten. All gave some, some gave all. Rest in peace. You will be missed by everyone’s life you have touched.

To the family, 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, friends, and all Americans for the sacrifice of one of your family members for our freedom. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May you find comfort in the loving embrace of our Heavenly Father.
