In early 1972 my family received a letter from my brother-in-law, Lynn Biscamp. It contained a free-form poem which, after his death, was published in a local newspaper in the following form:
24 November 2003
Lynn, your mom passed away November 15, 2003, so now y'all will be together again. I will miss her a bunch but now she's not suffering. I miss you and think of you every day.

Lynn, it's been 32 years today and we still think of you and miss you every day.

From his brother-in-law,
We miss you so much and wish you could still be here. My mom, Jenny, misses you and so does Shelly and Grandma. I wish you could be here to see your 5 grandaughters grow up. We are all doing well. I sometimes sit and wonder what it would be like to know you, but I know you are at peace and you died defending your country and family. You are always in my prayers. WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU MORE EACH DAY!!!

It's been awhile but I think of you often. Things are going great for me, I got into a very nice college and I am enjoying life. Ashley, my sister, Jennie's middle daughter, is doing amazing in sports. Abby is doing ok, but please be with her and help her through out her problems because I cannot always be there for her. Mom, well she is doing ok, but she needs your guidance, please be with her. Gramma is doing alright, but please be with her. Love is the srongest emotion. She still can't talk about you or baby Lynn but I have contacted some people who I hope can help me get some answers.
Please be with me and keep me safe through out my college career, my long trips, and my rugby games. I know you hear my prayers to you. Please keep us all safe. We miss you and think of you often.
I Love You, Grandpa,
From his granddaughter,
Alyssa M. Klitz
He is our great uncle. We have never met him but we still love him.
From his great-niece and nephew,
It's been a long time. I still think about you and the guys sometimes - actually quite often. My family and I were in Washington, D.C. last summer and visited the Wall. We looked up your name and I told my wife and son about you.
I remember that day. I will never forget. I remember how you walked "point" ahead of us. I remember how you put the safety of your men ahead of your own ... guess that's why I am writing this.
It was an honor to know you and to serve with you.
Well, it's late - I work the second shift. Check you later...
Respectfully and Fondly,
Dad, Just wanted to take this time to say I miss you terribly and would give anything for you to be here. I have three wonderful girls, Alyssa, Ashley, and Abigail. You would be very proud of them. They are great kids. Mama and Papa got the chance to meet them one day when we went to visit you at Forest Lawn Cemetery. That was the last time that I got to see Mama. I miss the Biscamp side of the family tremedously. I think of you every day and value your courage for standing up for what was right. I am proud to say that I am your daughter, even though I did not get to spend much time with you. I look at your picture every day and also of baby Lynn. I miss you DAD!!! I know that you are watching over me, mom, and the girls. Please keep us safe and remember, YOU will never be forgotten.

Hey!! Dad, just wanted to say hi! You would be very proud of me. I have 3 beautiful girls. Alyssa is a sophmore at Wayne State University and plays rugby. Ashley is a sophmore at Byran High School and plays volleyball, basketball, and soccer. Abigail is a 7th grader at La Vista Junior High School and plays basketball and volleyball. They are all doing well in school and I am very proud of them. I also would like to let you know that not a day a goes by that I do not think of you and I miss you tremendously. I wish that I could just talk to you - face to face. I just sometimes would like to be able to get your advice and thoughts. Dad, I miss you soooo much. My heart will always be broken. I just wish that you could help me!!! I often think to myself what would dad do or say if he was in this situation. I, then, laugh to myself and see you standing there - I could only guess. Please watch over me and keep me safe. Dad, I am trying!!! Please help!!!!
