Stories

An inspiring author once shared some truth about the charater of Joy and Sorrow. I thought these emotions just took turns. Now I think they are inseparable, work together. Joy is your sorrow unmasked. Joy only has the room in us that our sorrow carved. The deeper our sorrow, the more our Joy. The person with loss is happy discovering seashells. The person without loss is much harder to satisfy. My sympathies to the family that has suffered the loss of this fallen hero. May great your Joys someday also be. Thank you Edward Leonard Greene for serving your country. by April Dayns RN Sacramento, California

Leonard Greene III ( Youngest son ) lgreene007@yahoo.com San Jose CA 95136 USA In memory of our fallen hero, Edward Leonard Greene. He is missed by all, especially his family he left behind. He is not forgotten, he is remembered as he was, when he left for his second tour of duty. I have three vivid memories of my father. I remember when he left, talking to all four of his children, with me on his knee, telling us to be good and listen to our mother. The other memory I have is the night the chaplin, a captain and another officer came to our house to deliver the news of his death. My final memory was at his funeral, the playing of taps, the flag being folded and handed to my mother. I looked at him in a half open casket, seeing him so peaceful and resting. It wasn't until later, as an adult, that my mother showed me his death certificate. It stated he died of friendly fire, due to navel gun ships firing on his position to repel an attack as his camp was being overrun. He was part of the MACV advisors assigned to a South Vietnamese company. He died serving his country, like those before and those that will come after. Rest in peace. Love your youngest son, Leonard. Written Mar 28, 2008 by Len Greene.

Today have I placed virtual memorial flowers at this site to honor this soldier and his surviving family. God Bless us everyone. Rachel Wong, age 21. ( Daughter of April Dayns RN. )

Love Never Dies " I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge -- hope always triumphs over experience -- laughter is the cure for grief -- love is stronger than death. " exert quote from Robert Fulghum.
