Day is done, Gone the sun,
from the lake, from the hill,
from the sky.
all is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.
for all that knew this man, these words must be said:
Blue skies, open canopies, soft landings, rotor in the green airborne all the way, green beret. Take the high ground.
Well done Soldier. We’ll see you when we see you.

All our love, Tommy & Sharon
