To those who do not know me

I'm a husband, father, brother and son.

I accepted the call of my country

Now my race is run.

I died an angry death

Lying on foreign soil.

For my family and my country

In hope a terrorist, I might foil.

To the mother of my children

I hope you'll remember me.

As a good and loving husband

Just as I tried to be.

To my children Karen and Jacob

I hope you'll remember me.

As the dad you could always turn to.

I loved my family.

To my brother and my sister

I hope you'll remember me.

As a good and decent man

The way a brother should be.

To my mother and my father

I hope you'll remember me

As a loving, trusting son

Proud of me, I hope you'll always be.

To the Country that I served

I hope you'll remember me.

As a soldier, as an American

Who died for liberty.

Fear not your loss

For this I guarantee

I'll see you all in heaven

and I hope you'll remember me.
