Farewell William (Bill) Tingen - 101st Airborne
#4

Sorry to see we have lost another WWII vet. Of course it happens every day across the globe, but it is brought home when you read something like this. I'm glad to have reminders like this because it reinforces the idea that every death has its own story and people who it affects. The poem does that better than anything - it is a window into what he felt for the last 3+ years. May they both rest in peace in the grace of God.
