      The tide recedes but leaves bright seashells on the sand, the sun goes down but the gentle warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops & yet it echoes on in sweet refrains…..for every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.~~Sydney Meyer, Louisville, Ky.

      A life well-lived does not end any more than the music ends, it echoes through time with whispers of beauty and grace. If we listen, we can hear the encore with our hearts, for the song plays on, just as love lives on. Just remember that grief cannot take away the happiness you shared, that sorrow will fade in time, but love remains forever.–Clara Langley, Louisville, Ky.

      Remember me in your hearts, your thoughts, and the memories of the times we loved, the times we cried, and the times we laughed, for if you always think of me, I will never be gone.

      Love and Gratitude….The agony is so great and yet you stand it. Had you not loved so very much, you would not hurt so much. But goodness knows you would not want to diminish that precious love by one fraction of an ounce. You will hurt, and you will be grateful to take the hurt, for it bears witness to the depth of your meanings, and for that you will be eternally grateful.–Irene Richmond, Louisville, Ky.

      There was no love more genuine than mine; in giving and receiving it was pure. Grieve not, for my legacy is love, pure and true, each memory a gift that will endure, returning you to moments fair and fine.

      Think of me as one at rest, for me you should not weep. I have no cares, no troubled thoughts, for now I am asleep.–The living breathing me that was, is now forever still, and time goes on without me as time forever will.–Those of you who liked me, I sincerely thank you all, and those of you that loved me, I thank you most of all.–It matters not if time began or if time will ever cease. I was here, I used it all, and now I am at peace.

      The Soldier Poem–I was that which others did not want to be. I went where others feared to go, and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing from those who gave nothing, and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness…..should I fail. I have seen the face of terror; felt the stinging cold of fear; and enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love. I have cried, pained, and hoped…..but most of all, I have lived times others would say were best forgotten. At least some day I will be able to say that I was proud of what I was….. A Soldier. —
      Deepest and most heart-felt sympathy–Nikki Coan
      Louisville, Ky.

      There beside a grave she stands, a folded flag clutched in her hands. A silent teardrop on her face, her brave young child has entered grace. She does not hear the sermon said, just memories run through her head. The child she held so long ago, the child with faith she let go. The child who heard the nation’s call, and in the end gave it all, without fear or thoughts of self, thoughts of freedom and little else. The bugle sounds TAPS in the wind, a mournful song it does send. A reminder to us all, that for freedom this, this price was paid, and her sweet young to rest was laid.~~Thank you
      Staff Sgt. Bolander for fighting for Freedom and America.~~To his family and friends–May GOD bless you–with bright stars in the sky when in doubt–with smiles when the road seems long–with sunshine to warm you when the world seems cold–with love to greet you when each day is done.~~
      Norma coan, Louisville, Ky.
