George Smith

Case Manager   United States Veterans Initiative  *

Smiling through your pain

God dam it, I miss you George

My loss and your gain

You tried to let us all know

Your death still came as a blow

  1. A serious issue. Sad.

    Well written and fine choice of subject.

    Too young to go. My sympathies on the loss of your friend. This makes for a lovely homage.
