    I knew you as a little boy. You grew up to be a man any mother would be proud of. God let this world have you for such a brief time. But he needed you more in heaven. Watch over your family. They will need your strength to help them manage without you. From myself and my son, Sgt. Maj. Jonathan Clark, Semper Fidelis Marine.

    I went through corrections academy with Logan and ther was never a day that he didn’t have the class rolling in laughter. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without a ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well.

    from the book September.

    RIP Marine, your war is over and you fight no more. I weep for you and yours this day.

    You are forever “Semper Fidelis”
