Many a day has passed
but never has Hollie left my heart.
John died one night off the front gun turrent while on guard.
Tears from heaven, John...

I remember your memorial service, John.
I remember how you saved another sailor's life when he made a grave mistake that night.
I remember you being my final hero of that war.
John, I remember, always.
