Laid To Rest-Mourning Rose

You gave America your youth

innocence

valor

courage

blood.

You gave America an oath

of true faith

allegiance

obedience.

You gave America your duty

loyalty

independence

fealty.

You gave America your willingness

to defend

protect

and liberate

innocence across the world.

You gave yourself to America.

You are now

Fully and eternally

committed

to

America

terra firma.

You are home now

Soldier.

You have given more than enough.

America receives you completely.

    • His wife’s name was Rose as well Paulette. 🙂 I love the story he told me of meeting her. It was a beautiful story. I feel like I can never do nearly what he and others like him have done, the least I can do is respect them and their stories. He was a charmer. 🙂

  1. The rose is meaningful and a fitting tribute to one who gave more than a lot of people EVER will for their country. Hugs to you and thinking of him, too.
