  1. God rest these souls. Light shines brighter from above now. Amazing accomplishments in the flesh all. Well done men.

  2. May the Lord grant the family of these young men peace and may their family’s be proud of the men they raised and lost too soon.

  3. You gave it all and your sacrifice will never be forgotten. RIP and God Bless. You and Your families are in our prayers.

  4. Day is done, gone the sun,
    From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
    All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

    Fading light, dims the sight,
    And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
    From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

    Thanks and praise, for our days,
    ‘Neath the sun, ‘neath the stars, neath the sky;
    As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

    Sun has set, shadows come,
    Time has fled, Scouts must go to their beds
    Always true to the promise that they made.

    While the light fades from sight,
    And the stars gleaming rays softly send,
    To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend.
