Steve, you were a good friend. I wish that I could have done more on the night you died. I think of you always. 35 years ago and it seems like yesterday. I'm sure you have found peace where you're at.

Your bud forever

Steve Campbell,

I have thought about you nearly every day since you died that night in Vietnam. I was with you that night and held you in my arms until the chopper got there to take you away. You were a "Class A" soldier. We miss you and may your family find peace.

your friend always,

Doug Scott

I would love to hear from friends I served with in Vietnam. I was there from May 1, 1967 to May 1, 1968. I think of Steve Campbell and Billy Kelsall every day.

Child of Mine

"I'll lend you for a while a child of mine," He said.
"For you to love the while he lives and mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three,
But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and should his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief."

"I cannot promise he will stay; since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over in My search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love, not think the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come to call to take him back again?"

"I fancied that I heard them say, "Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay;
But should the angels call for him much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand!"
- Edgar Guest -

Steve, you will live in our heart and memories forever.
From your family...

Love ya,
Jackie Lane
