You have never been forgotten and never will be.
I think of you every single day.
I wish you had made it home.

Hard to believe it's been 35 years.
I still think of you every single day.
Oh how I wish you had made it home.

This Memorial Day 2005,
as on every day,
my thoughts are of you.

September 12, 1968
Thirty-seven years ago, and still I think of you.
So briefly in my life,
but forever in my heart and mind.
I wish you had made it home.

Still, after all these years, my thoughts are always of you;
Never forgotten, you are always in my heart.

As always ... thoughts of you.

27 Mar 2008

Just thinking of you as always. Went to the battlefield in Viet Nam. I had to see what you last saw. The rubber trees are still there. Some crater holes are still in the ground. Perhaps from mortar rounds. I found myself looking for you. It has been so long. I wish you had made it home.

The point-of-contact for this memorial is
a friend.
