Tiny, it has been 4 years since you left us, and you are not soon forgotten. This year they finally added your name to the wall in DC. You are missed my brother.

It has just dawned on me that a couple months ago you welcomed one of your children Home. I know she was so happy to be there and to see you again. You guys take care of each other and look out for us here as we will always need your love and guidance. We still miss you Tiny and our hearts are still broken over the loss of you. The loss of this dear precious child just broke our hearts more but realizing you were there to welcome her has made my heart heal just a little.


May 13, 2012

I can't believe it has been two years since the horrible day that you left us. Our hearts have a hole that will never be filled. The guys that have taken your place in our schools (and it has taken at least two) will never fill your shoes. They try but one of them just doesn't have the heart for the families that you did. The other one tries and he comes kinda close but he isn't you. I don't know of anyone who will have the heart for our families that you did. I have tried to "fill in" with the one family you helped so much but there is no way I can do all you did for them. They loved you so much. On the day of your memorial the mom grabbed me in the hall and just cried, "I have lost my best friend" and that's what you were to her. No one will ever take your place with that woman and her kids. However, as I am sure you already know, the young lady will be going on a "Discovery Tour" for modeling in the fall. I am so proud of her and I know you are too. That child would NEVER have had the courage to step out like that had it not been for you and the things you did for them. They will never forget that and neither will a lot of other people, including me. Having to tell my daughter that you were gone was a very hard thing to do that day. We were in the doctor's office and she absolutely lost it when I told her. The whole office was disrupted because of her reaction. I realized at that point how much you meant to her. She was devastated. I know you are in heaven and I know we have had to go on with our lives but it is not now nor will it ever be the same. Welcome Sgt. Chapin from Chattanooga and know that you are still sorely missed. We loved you.

Your heroism and service is honored today. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

Rest In Peace and I'll see you on the other side.

My Dearest Family and Friends

Somethings I'd like to say but first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from Heaven where I dwell with Our Lord above. where there's no more tears or sadness just eternal Love. Please don't be unhappy because I'm out of sight, remember that I'm with you every morning,noon and Night.

The Day I had to leave you when my Life on earth was through God picked me up and hugged me and He said I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again, You were missed while you were gone. As for your Dearest Family they'll be here later on.
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan. Theres so much we have to do to help our Moral Man.
Then God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do, and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you.
I'll be beside you everyday and through out the years, And when your sad. I'm standing there to wipe away your tears.
When You lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight God and I are close you in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on Earth and all the loving years, because your only human they are bound to bring you tears.

Please don't be afraid to cry, it does releive the pain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned, But if I were to tell you You wouldn't understand.One thing is for certain, though my life on Earth is over I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.

To My many Friends, Trust God knows what is best.I'm still not far away from you I'm just beyond the crest.

So, If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain.
And now I am contented that with my life. it was worth while,Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
If you meet somebody who is down and feeling low just lend a hand and pick him up as on your way you go.
When Your walking down the street and you've got me on your mind just know Im walking in your footstep only a half a step behind.
And if you feel a gentel breeze or wind upon your face thats me just giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.
I will always love you from the land way up above We'll be in touch again soon
PS God sends his Love.

Tiny, how I miss your smile and laughter! I needed to talk and you were always there. Thank you. Right now I need to talk, and there's no one. Thanks for giving to our children. Debra, James and Jessica are so proud of you! They are such great people. Again, Tiny, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are so missed.
