Hi Son, I am sure that you and Lee Ray are having a wonderful time running around together. I would love to have seen his face when he first caught sight of you!!! He had cancer really bad, and after two operations the vet pretty much told us that there was no other treatment except 'dog chemo and radiation', which we didn't think was fair to your dog. We had a hospice vet come to the house to put him down, and mom and I held him and kissed his sweet little face while he left this world and moved to you. I can't begin to tell you how much I miss that dog. It is like another little piece of you went with him. You boys run and have fun together and look for us I love you bud, more than words could say Dad.

We go through life with little 15 minute memories. Often we forget about these memories, but I remember this particular one. My boyfriend at the time, Jonathan, and I were at a restaurant, a little bar, getting it set up for his Dad's retirement shin dig. His father was retiring from the National Guard and while we were sitting around waiting for our food, you walked in. Smiling as ever with just a radiance about you. I think it was because you were in your element, around other servicemen in a bar, celebrating. You sat with us and told us about what you were doing and how you were doing. You told us how happy you were to see us. It was a brief greeting, I think you were being polite since John and I were stuffing our faces. But I remember it so clearly now... you were most excited about what seemed to me, the goals you were setting for yourself. I am proud of you, proud to have such a rich memory. A memory filled with self-respect and happiness. Our world needs more men and women like you. May you and your family be filled with Peace and Everlasting Grace in the presence of our Lord. I love and miss you and very much think about you. Cassy

Buddy,, I had the greatest times with you. I can't tell you how much I miss you. One of the best times was when you jumped from the building roof into the swimming pool, I thought your dad would pass out when he saw you do it. We all still laugh about the time when you were about 3 years old, and I called you a girl--you immediately showed me your "proof" and said, " Does this look like a girl to you?" Needless to say I never ask that question again! You were one of the sweetest little boys I ever knew. I love you very much and thank your family for sharing you with us. Hope you are having fun and giving all the other angels a hard time. Hope to see you again someday. Love you, Patty

John and I visited your grave last weekend and took the weedeater and trimmed up the cemetary. We brought you a Bud Lite and had one in your memory. Just a few more days and it will be 3 years since you left us. It just seems like yesterday that we were going to ballgames and going to the store for mom. I really miss you Homer, you're my heart. love, dad

I can't help but think of you each time I see the dusting of snow. It takes me back to the morning I took you to one your dr. appointments. I am sure you remember too. After expressing how beautiful I thought the snow was and what a wonderful morning it was for most likely the 100th time you looked at me with that no nonsense expression of yours and said " I think I got it now". I've regretted not letting you skip school that day and have wished many times we had spent the day together like you ask, but acting on fear of what your parents could do and would do to me I chickened out. Sorry Bud, I wish I had, and looking back I am sure we could have taken on both of them. I know on many occasions I pushed the limits by making you stand still so I could hug and kiss you, I'm really not sorry, I wish I could do it all again. Thanks for the memories Love you kid Drema

I have a million memories but I love all of the beach-y ones. Throwing each other off jet skis, shopping, hanging out together. Mostly getting along- haha- You are a wonderful brother and always kept me entertained. And you always made me look like the good child =) I miss you everyday. You are such a special boy and I wish we could share our lives together as we grow up. I hate that you'll never be older than 20 to us. I miss you and can't wait to see you again. =) Love, Woobie

hi bud, i am missing you tonight so much i can't hold it together. mommaw walker and i were watching 'forrest gump' and i remembered how you and jenn used to tease me about being like him............... precious memories, but very painful too. i miss you more every day. it gets worse and worse all the time. i had to have the third back surgery in december, and i am still not getting better. they put me in the hospital last week and drained two places that were full of blood, and that helped for three days, but now am back again . i am sick of being sick............... the boys of b bty got home a couple of weeks ago,and we were so glad to see them and hug them, but i kept looking for you to get off one of the buses. i knew you wouldn't , but couldn't help myself from looking for you................... brian and phil brought all the boys home with them.......i am sure you already knew that, but i wanted to write to you about it anyway. they did a good job, and had a ceremony in iraq where they buried some aritfacts of yours that they took with them . wayne,andrew,brian, phil, and some of the other boys you were close to had a ceremony and buried some of your stuff in the desert. it was very touching . they missed you so bad, they kept a seat for you on the truck every time they went out. it was your seat, and no one used it for the whole year. they are truly your comrades, and carried your memory with them into battle. annie and joe's baby, ellie, is a delite. she is so cute and smart and loving, she would have been your girl just like the others. ellie looks so much like joe, mom calls her 'jojo'................it's really cute, and she is a doll. i love you son and miss you more than words could describe. hope i see you soon. love

I'm Sgt Carl McCauley, formally Cpl McCauley. It saddens me that I had to meet Homer that night vs meeting him on the beaches or on the battle field. To the Graham's, no words can say how sorry I am for your loss. It's been over two years and not a day goes by that Homer's life doesn't still live on with me. And to his fellow Soldiers, I am sadden as well for your loss of such a fine young man. It's never easy to loose a comrade at home, I know. Continue on with his fighting spirit, and take the fight to the enemy for him.

Graham, was the type of soldier that made you proud to be a soldier. He always showed you professionalism of a soldier that keeps you on your toes. His dedication to the FDC section and the unit will be miss, also as a good friend to me, my memories of Graham is the reason why I'm proud to wear the uniform.

Graham came to our unit a young, dedicated, and hard working soldier. He was a joy to be around and brought much laughter to myself and others during Annual Training 2007 in Mississippi. During AT 2007 when the days were long and tough and I was running low on Grizzly Long Cut Wintergreen, he was always there with a spare can until I could pay him back. He always had a smile on his face and was a joy to be around. Being the Battery Cdr's driver is a tough job and I watched him mature and develop into a fine soldier. Without the laughs I had with him, Pigg, and Beheler, AT 2007 would have been a long three weeks. Homer, I'm gonna miss ya bud. Keep an eye on us down here and guide us through the tough times that we may face in the future.

Where to start? There are so many great memories of the man I referred to as "Graham." He and I met in Wadesboro, at the National Guard Armory. We spent quite a few weekends there, preparing to go to Boot Camp. We finally shipped off to Oklahoma together, and although we were in different MOSs, I saw Graham several times. Then, regular drills. Homer was a unique and special man, a great soldier, and a truly loyal friend. Always ready to help, and never failing to brighten everyone's day, he will be missed until the day I join him. Love you, Homie.

Buddy's Song When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not there to see;If the sun may rise and find your eyes,all filled with tears for me;I wish so much you wouldn't cry,the way you did today,While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me,as much as I love you,And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too;But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,That an angel came by and called my name, and took me by the hand,And said my place was ready, in heaven far above, and that I'd have to Leave behind, all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye for all life, I'd always thought I didn't want to die, I had so much to live for,So much yet to do, it seemed almost impossibl, that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays,the good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while, I'd say good-bye and kiss you, and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized, that this could never be, for emptiness and Memories, would take the place of me. And when I thought of wordly things, I might miss come tomorrow, I thought of you and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow, But when I walked through Heaven's gates, II felt so much at home, When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden Throne, He said,"This is eternity, and I've promised you." Today for life in earth is passed, but here its starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last, And since each day is the same, there's no longing for the past. But you have been faithful, so so trusting and so true. Though there were times you did some things, You knew you shouldn't do. But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free. So won't you take my hand and share my life with me? So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, For everytime you think of me, I'm right there in your heart.

My First Christmas In Heaven I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the tear For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear But the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here. I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring, For it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing. I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart But I am not so far away, We really aren't apart. So be happy for me, dear ones, You know I hold you dear. And be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above. I sent you each a memory of my undying love. After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold. It was always most important in the stories Jesus told. Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do. For I can't count the blessing or love he has for each of you. So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

Being my first drill back with the unit in 4 years from another unit in Gastonia,I met Buddy, and was instantly felt like I had made another great friend. He was the last person i got to see that day as I pulled out of the parking lot at B Battery,the last smilling face of a long weekend , I will miss him. All my prayers go go his family. also, a tribute to Buddy was done Saturday, December 1 at the "Red Leg Ball" in memory for Buddy, a big toast and a "Hear, Hear" for our friend.
