  1. The Last Roll Call

    Here we stand in formation
    To honor a brother who served his nation
    One by one our names are read
    As the tears begin to shed
    His name is called there is no sound
    Just solemn faces all around
    Three times in all his name is said
    But he cannot answer for he is dead


    He will never shoot another round
    His rifle sticks in the ground
    I see the boots he used to wear
    They’re empty now he isn’t there
    I’ll forever remember the day he died
    I’ll remember today when we all cried
    So on this day we say goodbye
    But in our hearts he’ll never die

    01/27/1940 – 12/08/2011

    Richard – You were my neighbor and my friend.
    I will miss you dearly.
    I can only trust you are in good hands – for you are with
    God now.
    Until we meet again – Rest in Peace!


    The memories are all that we have now,
    We do go on..only God knows how.
    A New Year comes as midnight arrives,
    Our Angel’s still a big part of our lives.

    If only we could trade the presents we receive,
    For one more day with those whom we grieve!
    But nothing can bring back our beloved friends,
    Loved ones and family, their time here ends.

    They are together in a much better place,
    Watching us cry..touching our face!
    Although we miss them on Holidays to share,
    Be assured their loving presence fills the air,
    At home, in church, at New York’s Times Square!

    So celebrating the Holidays are now hard to do,
    But always remember they are thinking of you too,
    Wishing you happiness and showing their love,
    Not on this Earth, but from Heaven above!
