From Hartville, Ohio
26 December 1946 - 12 September 1968
You have never been forgotten and never will be.
I think of you every single day.
I wish you had made it home.
Hard to believe it's been 35 years.
I still think of you every single day.
Oh how I wish you had made it home.
This Memorial Day 2005,
as on every day,
my thoughts are of you.
Still, after all these years, my thoughts are always of you;
Never forgotten, you are always in my heart.
As always ... thoughts of you.
Just thinking of you as always. Went to the battlefield in Viet Nam. I had to see what you last saw. The rubber trees are still there. Some crater holes are still in the ground. Perhaps from mortar rounds. I found myself looking for you. It has been so long. I wish you had made it home.
