I threw them up into the sky,
You turned around and shot and hit,
the targets though they did not die,
but I knew then that you were great,
a Marksman truly you were an Expert,
I saw you at your very best
Then and now forever in my heart
you are a Hero! in God's Kingdom
Rest In Peace.

This is his niece June L. Aguon, daughter of his brother Felipe Q. Aguon. My Uncle Joe died when I was only 6 years old but I do clearly remember his funeral. I am in contact with his second son Joseph D. Aguon who resides in Citrus Heights, Sacramento with his lovely wife Yolanda. Finally they are planning to go to Guam this December 2006 after 38 years being away from Guam. My parents Felipe and Anita L. Aguon, Aunts Josephine A. Sanchez, Brigida A. Gofigan and Uncle Frank Q. Aguon visited Uncle Joe's children (Joseph, Johnny, Cathy, Tony) and of course some of the nieces and nephews in Sacramento 2001 and which was a very lovely reunion but also a tearful one since we have not seen his children for over 34 years. The rest of his kids are Benny, Michael and Linda who were not able to be there but they are always in our hearts and minds and wish them well since we are not in contact with them at this time. Hopefully one day we will be able to meet all of them at one time in the future ... that is one of my wishes for my family.
