90 Years Ago The Guns Fell Silent

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.*

* 4th verse of Laurence Binyon's 'For the Fallen'


  1. What a beautiful tribute for a great man! Reading ther verse brought literal tears to our eyes. It is too bad some of his descendents didn't have the pleasure of knowing what a great guy he was - it looks like it will be the obligation of those of us who spent some one-on-one time with him to keep his memoty alive. Thanks again, Bob.

  2. Well said Dad, I second it all and add only such a great man could have such a wonderful daughter.
