Each years in longer lines they stand,
Whose shattered lives endured, then whispered out.
No calling back even to shake one hand,
Nor say one word of praise, expunge the doubt
That we remembered or could understand.
We thank them now, for none are more devout.
Please bring a framed photo of your loved one in uniform for our “Table of Honor”. I’m bringing my favorite one of my dad in his dress white Navy uniform ca. 1957. I hope he’ll have lots of company.
