COINS LEFT AT A SOLDIERS GRAVEThese coins have a meaning when left on the headstones of those who gave their life while serving in America’s military, and these meanings vary depending on the denomination of coin. A coin tells the deceased soldier’s family that someone has visited the grave to pay respect.A penny means that you visited. A nickel that you and the deceased trained at boot camp together, a dime means you served with him, and quarter, means that you were with the solider when he Died.

I had a long chat with your sister today - the conversation was very therapeutic for me. She told me how deeply you cared for me and how often you spoke of me to her (I became choked up hearing this). I told her we truly loved each other, but things went so wrong and we were too young and inexperienced to know how to "right" them - I told your sister about the letter you sent me and how you wanted us to find our way back together again when you came home. I told her about the night you asked me to go away with you and marry you and my not knowing why I refused (I know now it must have been fate). I told her that I needed to seek closure somehow for the pain of your death that has come back on me after all these years. I know I will someday find my closure and get over this again!

Wishing you were here again today! I know now that I MUST find my way out of this mental turmoil that has come back after being buried all these years. Why did the pain return? I am not sure, but I will seek therapy to find the "closure" I never had. Perhaps if I had answered your letter sooner, you would have received my response in time rather than my letter being returned to me unopened after you had left this world. By waiting so long to answer, I know now I was being stubborn and angry when I had no one to blame but myself. There are so many things I wish.... most of all, I wish I could return to the night you asked me to marry you. Only God knows the real reason I turned you down when I know that I really DID WANT to marry you! Maybe it was fate intervening and perhaps I would refuse to go away with you again, if we could re-live the past. Who knows? But at the time, I did not know what was going on in your personal life until it was too late - if only you had confided things in me as I learned later that you confided in Nettie, I believe my decision would have been different. If only... if only is so futile, I know! But I also know this - "I've been loving you too long to stop now" and if there is such a thing as people who loved each other being able to re-unite in the afterlife, I know "someday we will find our way back together again" as we both wanted to do. Until then, sleep well, my love! And may God dispatch his heavenly angels to continue to watch over and protect our soul!

Thinking about you again this morning after 43 years! I had buried the pain and now I am trying to discover why it refurfaced after all this time. It is still hard to believe you are gone; it seems just like yesterday when your handsome smiling face walked this earth. It is still so sad to think how all the plans we made in high school never materialized - one day I hope to forgive myself and get over the foolish mistakes I made when it came to you. No matter what - I DID love you!!

I post this in memory of you, my first true love! After all of these years, it is still difficult to understand what happened between us and why you, of all people, had to go! I realize it was fate that you went..... and truly fate that you did not come home and we did not "find our way back together again" as you wanted us to do. Forever Rest in peace, my love!

"I've been loving you too long to stop now!" No - I do not know why the pain and sad memories returned after so many years, but I have decided to just let things run their course. Oh, if only we could return to 1965 and start over again or re-live the summer of 1968 so that I could make a different decision or at least return to April 1969 so that I could answer your final letter before it was too late. Perhaps one day, this unexplainable pain will pass over again as it did before and I will be able to say my final good-bye.

Yesterday, February 28, was "our" birthday. I am 65 and you would have been 66. Oh how the years have flown! I am growing old but you are forever remembered as young - the tall handsome and kind young man who never wanted to hurt others. For the first time in the years since your death, I was overwhelmed yesterday on our birthday and thought of not writing this - but I decided to write it anyway in the given name that you knew and loved me as. I had come to grips of sorts with how I treated you when we were so young, and I had come to terms with the emotional suffering your death caused me; but the pain came back in full force last year (I don't know why!). It's strange how it took your death to truly wake me up. I will always regret the foolish decisions I made regarding you even when you were trying to forgive me for all I had done. If only I would have been wise enough to answer your final letter before it was too late. But youth is so blind!! May God forever watch over your soul as you rest in peace! Yes - I did love you, and I am so sorry I did not show it back then!!

Another year has passed, and I am thankful to the Heavenly Father for it. Of course I will always wish you were still here while forever realizing fate is beyond human control.

Each day I miss you more and more. I wish I knew why this is happening to me after 42 years! But only God knows - maybe it is my punishment for making wrong decisions. If we could only go back into time .....

Only God knows why you are the only soldier from Naples who did not make it back home from Viet Nam alive, especially since you were clearly the nicest person around. Oh fate, your sting is never understood!

Rest well, my dear friend! You deserve heaven's embrace. I believe the minor sins you committed in your short life will be forgiven. My only regret is that you did not enjoy the gift of life for a longer period of time and did not come home to find the happiness you were seeking and deserved to find. You will find that happiness in the next life.

I so desperately wish you were still here on earth. You were such a good person, never really wanting (or knowing how) to hurt someone. You did not deserve this, but I know you are at peace and pray God keeps you in his embrace!

I just found out that you thought I did not love you. I "wish" I could tell you in person that I DID love you! I just did not know how to show it back then. I "wish" I could tell you in person that I DID want to marry you - I have no idea why I turned you down (youthful fears maybe or perhaps simply fate - as it was not meant to be); but in the end, you did the honorable thing. I wish I had answered your final letter in time enough for you to receive it - as usual, I was being too stubborn. The pain of that has never left me after all these years!

I will forever love you; and if we could only re-live the fall of 1968, I would have gone away with you. Please forgive me! I wish we had known about Canada!
