Today... We Honor You

Day is done,
gone the sun,
From the hills,
from the lake,
From the skies.
All is well,
safely rest,
God is nigh.

Go to sleep,                                 
peaceful sleep,
May the soldier
or sailor,
God keep.
On the land
or the deep,
Safe in sleep.

Love, good night,
Must thou go,
When the day,
And the night
Need thee so?
All is well.
Speedeth all
To their rest.

Fades the light;
And afar
Goeth day,
And the stars
Shineth bright,
Fare thee well;
Day has gone,

Night is on.

Thanks and praise,
For our days,
'Neath the sun,
Neath the stars,
'Neath the sky,
As we go,
This we know,
God is nigh.

In loving rememberance of my sister-in-law ~ Iris U. Paschedag & to all who have served.

United States Army (Retired) ~ Served For 21 Years
Desert Storm & Bosnia
Date of Death ~ January 27th, 2006 ~ Age 50

We thank you for allowing us to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave! 

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies...

Be kind every day ~ Thank a Soldier!
