    This soldier was from a town only ten miles away, I just read this in my local paper:

    There is only one thing I can think to add; 'Welcome home Ralph, and thank you'.

    A SIMPE SOLDIER

    He was just a soldier is what we read.

    A good man has gone home today.

    A soldier has died is what was said.

    He has gone home with God, to stay.



    God bless his family a special way

    I know the pain that they must feel

    .
    It hurts us inside to watch them grieve.

    It will take some time for them to heal.



    There’s a special corner for brave men.

    A corner in heaven is where they’ll be.

    God set it aside a very long time ago.

    A peaceful place with all people free.

    Good Morning America has said they will include coverage of Sgt. Carlson's funeral last Saturday as part of their 4th of July broadcast.

    We spent about an hour yesterday morning at our area's Military cemetery, for my Mother-in-Law's commital service. (National Cemetery of the Alleghenies)

    We went back last evening to view her gravesite, and so an out-of-town guest could have a last visit with her before he headed back home.

    It is truly humbling to walk among the stones, and read about the service members resting there.

    This Independence Day weekend, we all need to send thanks, and prayers to all who have served, so we can be live the life we choose to live, not one forced upon us.

    Thank you,
    Russ-in-Pa
