I'll ever remember them...
How can their memories fade...?
When each morning sun
Recalls their smiling faces,
Pleasant hours they made
'Neath stars in far off places...
I'd be a shrew to forget those
Who gave their All
That I may live...
Longer....until my call...

                                             Ben J. Owen,
