Kit was my cousin. We were good friends when we were young, but lost track of each other as adults. I am saddened by his loss.

Hi there. For those of you who live far distance I want to share with you where your friend Kit is laid to rest. The cemetery is surrounded by acres of protected land. Right where his grave is, there is a beautiful lake, rich in rushes and full of wild life. The birds that live and fly the sky's appear to own that space and protect it. All of the tomb stones are decorated with a wreaths. His next door neighbor is Leroy Grooms. It is such a peaceful place.

Hi there! Yesterday was a perfect day. The sun was shining. The air was crisp, no clouds in the sky. The guns were fired. The taps were played. The flag was presented. The passage of time was read. We all held hands. There were more prayers but I zoned out. The green marble urn was gently returned to earth, in a beautiful setting, waterfront no less. Peace and harmony surrounded us. Grief is love. Soon smiles will replace our tears again. That's what he would want.

God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.

He wrapped him in his loving arms and
whispered ‘Come with me.'

He suffered much in silence,
his spirit did not bend.

He faced his pain with courage,
until the very end.

He tried so hard to stay with us
but his fight was not in vain,

God took him to His loving home and
freed him from the pain.
