Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. I'm following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard Him call. I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay that day, to laugh, to love, to work or play. Task undone must stay that way. I found peace at the close of the day. If my parting left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with time of sorrow. I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much Good friends, good times, a loved one touched. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, but don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and share with me. God wanted me now, He set me free!' (Author Unknown) Jul 23, 2008
Eddy was my uncle, but more like an older brother, as he was only 5 years older than me. My mother, his sister, was 21 years old when he was born. It seems that if he wasn't at our house we were at his. I was so proud of him as we were growing up. My grandma and grandpa had a little farm and Eddie loved that lifestyle. I remember him proudly in his FFA jacket, always with a lamb, or cow or tractor. He would surely be living the life of a farmer or rancher, if Vietnam had not taken him from us. Eddie was special. Very kind, loving, hard working and handsome as well. Somehow we go on after a loss, but the void is never filled. I'll always miss him. Our family will always miss him.
I often wonder what he would be like now, what his kids would be like. His children would be about the age of my own kids. He would most likely have many grandchildren as well. All that should have been is so sad to think about. Even now.
You never get over this kind of loss. And to look at the wall and realize how many young men were lost...it's overwhelming. I hope people never forget the impact of Vietnam.

David Stafford email@example.com Grew up in the same neighborhood San Luis Obispo CA 93405 USA You're not forgotten Ed and I grew up in the same neighborhood, attended the same schools and graduated in the same high school class in 1965. Both of us were drafted on the same day in August of 1967. We were assigned to the same dreary hotel room near the induction center in LA, so we had a chance to talk about the Army and where it might send us and we also talked about Vietnam. Neither of us were particularly excited about going to war, but both of us agreed that if we were sent there we would do our job to the best of our abilities. After passing our induction physicals we were shipped off to 8 weeks of basic training, and then on the Advanced Individual Training. I think Ed was shipped to Ft. Bliss, TX for basic like me, but was assigned to a different training company, so I never saw Ed again. Ed and I served in the same general areas of Vietnam, but at different times. Ed went straight to Vietnam after training, while was sent to Germany before going to Vietnam. I'll never forget the day I received a letter from a mutual friend explaining that Ed had been killed. I think of Ed often and I will never forget him. He always had a smile on his face and I can still picture him driving up Augusta St. in his black '57 Ford Ranchero. Ed was one of 4 people that our high school class of '65 lost in that horrible war. May the memory of them always remain in our hearts.

David Taylor firstname.lastname@example.org Eddie was the brother of my Aunt. 204 Maui Court San Ramon, CA 94583 USA I didn't know Eddie very well. He lived on a farm in San Luis Obispo and was the brother of my Aunt Lorine. I stayed with Eddie and his family for a couple days one summer while visiting my mother's family in SLO. Eddie was a gracious host and I was welcomed into his family. I was with the Marines in Vietnam when Eddie was killed. Even though we weren't close friends, it was none the less a loss. I know he is missed. Thursday, May 04, 2000

Kathleen Marquis Clark email@example.com second cousin Eddie was the son of my Great Uncle Sam and my Great Aunt Cornelia.Although I never really got to know him well,I do remember him as being very sweet,handsome,and someone who dreamed of being a sheep rancher someday.Even though I was only 15 when he was killed,I think of him often but especially on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.I think about the dreams he must have had for his future that will be eternally unfullfilled and the fact that he didn't even survive 2 months in Vietnam.And I always think about what a waste it was to send him and so many other young men into a war that was so ill conceived.I am married to a Vietnam Veteran so I live with the reprecussions of the war every day.Eddie and all Vietnam Veterans are hero's because they did their duty for their country when it asked and put up with years of hostility and derision upon their return.As if they had had a choice about it all! Eddie is memorialized for all time on the Wall.I try to visit him there,when the opprotunity permits,but I'd give anything to be a visitor on his ranch instead of someone touching an etched name on the Wall.
