UNITED STATES MARINE

                                                                                                            By: Katina Prickett

You see him standing there, you know you do.

He's lean and mean, a real fighting machine.

He's tough, he's proud, he'll knock you down.

He's a United States Marine.

 

To see him now you would never guess that just

a few months ago he was one of the best.

He's fighting his battle all alone, there's nothing

you can do but watch him go. How is it possible,

how can it be, our marine is turning the key. To

 heavens door soon he will see. May God bless him

and hold him clolse to his heart, for our hearts are

crying from watching him part. Go with God marine,

walk free from your pain and know that you are

loved each and every day. You fought the battle

with all of your might, but God has made his decision,

and go with him you must. Don't be afraid, walk

toward the light, reach your hand and fill with

delight. The angels are waiting to carry you home.

Your battle is over, you'll feel no more pain. We love

you, dear, as you can plainly see but your place is with

the angels and not with thee. Take your pride and

your courage with you and be all the angel that

only you can be. I miss you already although you're

not gone. But take pride in knowing that your family

loves you and honor you for your courage and strength,

and for the loving man you've become. May God bless

you in your hour of need and make you an angel to watch

over your family forever more.

 

We love you, Thomas Benjamin White and your

legacy will live on through us. I only hope we

don't let you down. You're one tough act

to follow.
