They have been called from our midst, and gone to report to the Commander of all.  
 
We honor the memory of our fellow post members who offered their life in the service of country and who has now enrolled in that great spirit army, whose footfalls cause no sound, but in the memory of mankind, their souls go marching on, sustained by the pride of service in time of war.
 
These fellow legionnaires have been ordered to that realm in the West, beyond the twilight and the evening star, where beauty and valor and goodness dwell forever with the unnumbered multitude.
 
We realize how futile are mere words to express our deep and abiding sympathy to the loved ones of our departed post members.  Surely there is an afterlife for all who have been loyal and true, a life to which light and peace shall come, where the burden shall be lifted and the heartache shall cease, where the love, the hope and the fulfillment that escape us here shall be given to us, to be ours forever.

Farewell to our friends, legionnaires and comrades.

Those remaining salute you.

 
 
 
 

In our hearts, we all know that death is a part of life.  In fact, death gives meaning to our existence because it reminds us how precious life is.

The loss of a loved one is life’s most stressful event and can cause a major emotional crisis.  After the death of someone you love, you experience bereavement, which literally means “to be deprived by death.”

 
 

Remember-It takes time to fully absorb the impact of a major loss.  You never stop missing your loved one, but the pain eases after time and allows you to go on with your life.
