Stories

Today is April 14th, 2008. Several years ago a friend of mine died and today would have been his birthday. He was a talented man, cared for his family. He is missed. Somehow this reminds me of John. No one knows how much time they have on this earth, no one should waste time. I say to the family of this young man that he is not alone, not forgotten and time waits for no one. Tell everyone you Love that you Love them and as often as you can. Love never dies, but we do. May special Angels be assigned to guard over John's family in the name of Jesus. November 1967 was a tragic month. So many were lost in South Vietnam. ( Many sons, husbands, brothers and fathers. ) I am leaving John virtual memorial flowers to thank him for his dedication. God Bless this fallen hero. April Dayns RN Southeast Iowa
