In Memory


In loving memory and honor
of our son, Christopher E.
Cutchall (Staff Sergeant, U.S.
Army), killed in action September
29, 2003, Habbiniyah, Iraq.
Six years have come and gone
Since your life’s blood
Stained the Iraqi soil
And God took you home
To a soldier’s final resting place
A cool wind blows and scuttles
the leaves
About the brittle grass
A man huddles in his coat
As a shiver comes to pass
A woman takes his hand in hers
And looks into his face
Together they recall the things
That brought them to this place
A summer day, they said goodbye

To a young man they both knew
Their tears were filled with fear
and pride,
But he knew what he must do
He held them both and smiled
at them
But would not say goodbye
“I’ll see you soon” was all he said
As a tear fell from his eye
So now they stand together
And recall him as a boy
Delighted and delightful
He was so full of joy
Now all grown up a hero
He finally has come home
Back to the fields and forest
Which he in his boyhood
He would roam
The couple turn their gaze up
As the snow falls from the sky
Knowing that the son they love
Will always be nearby
They turn to leave as icy winds blow
The freezing rain, that coats
polished marble stone
That bears their soldier’s name

In loving memory of Goldie M. Henry on her 87th birthday on October 1: God looked around His garden And He found an empty place And then He looked down upon

Earth And saw your tired face He put His arms around you And lifted you to rest God’s garden must be beautiful He always takes the best He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain He knew that you would never

get well On earth again He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered “Peace be thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone For part of us went with you The day God called you home.
Loved and missed,
Sandy, Glenn,
Christopher, Jennifer
and great-grandchildren

You will never be forgotten

Alive within my heart
Mom and Dad
