When I think of you, and it is often I do,
I see your smile always so ready and then do I turn and smile at another,
I hear your laughter, Oh! it came from so deep within you,
I think of your courage, the kind for which medals aren't given.
There are those who will say that you died without ever living.
If I cry in the sorrow of missing,
"Peace to the soul of dear Skipper,
Eileen Sweeney Cubarney (cousin)
Our family has never forgotten, we miss him still.
Dear Cousin Skipper,
Love always from your 2nd cousin,
You are extremely respected and admired by people who don't even know you. May you rest in peace and always be remembered as someone who died for your country.
