After They Are Gone

When someone we love passes away,
We ache, but we go on;
Our dear departed would want us to heal,
After they are gone.

Grief is a normal way to mend
The anguish and pain in our hearts;
We need time to remember and time to mourn,
Before the recovery starts.

Let's draw together to recuperate,
As we go through this period of sorrow;
Let's help each other, with tender care
To find a brighter tomorrow.

A man is not dead until he is forgotten. Go in peace and remember you are not forgotten while I am still on patrol.

Email Message: Hello, my 2nd cousin Jeffrey Jerauld Hein served in Delta Company in Da Nang, Vietnam. He was a Radioman. He passed away in 1970 and I'd like to find a patch of Delta Company or a photo of one as I'd like to make a plaque in commemoration of him and all my relatives who served.

Sorry for the slow response to your last email.

I posted your previous email on the Delta company patch hopefully you'll get a response soon.

I'm so saddened to hear of the passing of Jeffrey at the age of 20
I didn't get to meet him I Was in Bravo Company in 1968 & 1969.

I'm curious how you cousin Jeffrey Hein died in 1970. Can you give me some background information and possibly some stories and photos of Jeffrey. This would be greatly appreciated by me and all the members of the Association.

I'll post them on the 1st Recon Battalion Association website. So his teammates could respond to them. I'll send you a link to the web page for your cousin.
