Major Roy James Blakeley (December 10, 1928 - July 22, 1965) - USAF (KIA)
When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play
No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye
- "I Still Can't Say Goodbye," Performer: Chet Atkins

Happiness lives for those who cry,
those who hurt,
those who have searched,
and those who have tried,
for only they can appreciate
the importance of people
who have touched their lives.
