Sgt. Simpson,
On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

By William Butler Yeats
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

never forgotten

St. Michael's sword darts through the air
and touches the aureole on his hair
As he sees them stand saluting there,
His stalwart sons:
And Patrick, Brigid, Columkill
Rejoice that in veins of warriors still
The Gael's blood runs.
And up to Heaven's doorway floats,
From the wood called Rouge Bouquet,
A delicate cloud of bugle notes
That softly say:
Comrades true, born anew, peace to you!
Your souls shall be where the heroes are
And your memory shine like the morning-star.
Brave and dear,
Shield us here.

The wicked fleee where no man pursueth, but the righteous are bold as a lion.
Proverbs 28:1

May God be with you and all who mourn you. May he give them the strength to carry on. You are in my thoughts and prayers

To his kids: Just wanted to let you guys know that your dad is a hero, now and forever. He will never be forgotten. He loves you now and always. You are in the thoughts and prayers of many.

Its crazy, i talked to you for an hour in the operations room 5 hours before the crash. You talked about how "your getting to old for this sh**." You made fun of half the people that walked into the room. You were yelling about how your never gonna cut your friends lawn again because all she does is complain, even though you were still going to do it!
Then the next time i saw you, i held the door for your wife and kids at Temple Hospital. To this day the sad whimpers from them as they observed a sight no family should ever have to see are stuck in my head.

Your funeral was one of the hardest days of my life.

As you would have wanted, we then celebrated your life at the benifit as we got the sad news about P/O JP.

God bless you and please watch over us..especially in the 24 and the 35.
