I do not fear an army of lions, if they are led by a lamb.
I do fear an army of sheep, if they are led by a lion.

Rudolph, life goes on and many changes have taken place.
The constant is wishing you were here to grow old with me and see your sons and our grandchildrn.

I still pray for us, and I always turn to the one scripture that carries me through...

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding."

We miss you so.

I remember my Uncle
and miss him very much even after all these years.

"Soldier's Prayer"

Lord I thank you for those brave men
and women who have unselfishly given their
lives so that we may have peace and security.

Who put us before themselves and endure
the hardship of war so that we may enjoy
the benefits of Your good grace.

It is an honor to our nation that such as
these have been given to us in these times
of trouble.

Yes Lord, bless them and their families
that in the Day of the Resurrection they
may all be at the Roll Call of Eternal
Life recieving a true hero's welcome.

I have never seen my grandfather. I have seen so much love that the family has for him, I've seen his loved ones miss him, and I've seen my dad and uncles cry. I've wished I could have seen him because I know my dad and uncles would be different men. I've looked at all the pictures and cried many times. I will always have my grandfather in my heart.

From his grandson,
Rudolph Nunez III
