Paying a soldier a visit

A couple of weeks ago, I had reason to be up in Killeen. I had a little bit of time before I had to head back towards home. I hadn't taken the time the other times I'd been in Killeen since last June to stop by, but I really wanted to pay Kile a visit. It was a quick stop, and I didn't bring anything for him.

I found myself up in Killeen again last week. This time, before I went to visit, I wanted to pick up some flowers. I decided on carnations, because I know they tend to last better than roses and such. When I saw the purple ones, thought they were perfect, all things considered.


I'll be up there again later this week, and hope to stop by again, with flowers again, if I can take the time to pick some up.

Miss Lady Bug, Thank you so much for visiting my son, opening up your e-mail this morning brought tears to my eyes. I appreciate you taking the time to go to the cemetery to see Kile and keeping him and the other soldier’s memories alive, it means the world to me.
Sincerely, Nanette West
