Public Invited



Not human or beast
but as a soldier he stood
Serving our country
and protect us, he would.

As age brought him new life
Filled with unconditional love
He will now always protect us
From the heavens above.

He may no longer be here
On this world that we stay
But his memory and soul
Shall be with us each day.

With his time on Earth
He did his part
Leaving his memory in our home
And his love in our heart.
