REMEMBERED… WITH LOVE
We are but a piece of sand in time; we were all once in our prime
We will meet them one day when we are old and grayed.
Until then my friends, our love we send.

Author’s Note: My role on the High School Class Reunion Committee is the keeper of the classmates contact information. In 2003, as we were making up the list of classmates, I came across the information of two individuals who were killed in Vietnam a year after we graduated (1967). I knew these two individuals and had remembered that they were KIA in Vietnam. When we made up the flyer for the reunion, I told the committee I would sponsor a full page to memorialize the two vets and any other deceased classmates. As part of the memorializing I wrote this little poem.
