(Many have herd it played--Few know the words )
Day is done, gone the sun,
From the hills, from the lake, From the skies. All is well,
God is nigh.
Go to 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.

While Memorial Day is a time set aside to remember the members of our military that gave their lives in battle, I believe it is a good thing to remember all of our service people that are no longer with us. So I'd like to post the shield of the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command in honor of my wife Rebecca's uncle Kendall Whaley. His funeral was on Memorial Day last year. He was a SAC B-52 radar navigator and served on the front lines of the Cold War with his finger literally on the nuclear button, as well as in a very "hot" war, flying numerous bombing missions over Vietnam. His service, and that of countless others, paid for the freedom we enjoy today and we should always be thankful....

I believe all Americans owe a debt that we can never repay to all of the men and women who have given their lives for this nation. I am deeply grateful for their sacrifices. This is a time to remember their families also .
