Killed in action September 29, 2003, in Habbiniyah, Iraq, in the Sunni Triangle. Leading a convoy in an unarmored humvee, a remotedetonated IED was exploded directly under his vehicle. Ten long years have come and gone since your life’s blood stained the Iraqi soil and God took you home to a soldier’s final resting place. No greater pain is ever felt than when a father and mother must bury their child. And we remember with great fondness, the young man we raised every night when we turn on your memorial light. We are left with bits of metal and ribbon in the medals you were given, a piece of cloth as a folded flag, old pictures and the memories you left. The winds of time have changed many things in these past 10 years, but it has not dimmed the ache of your loss to us. Our oldest son, a soldier’s life you chose. God, country, duty, honor and sacrifice, just words to most, but words with true meaning to those who choose to stand between the monsters of the world and the weak. Love forever Son, Dad and Mom CUTCHALL
I can’t forget that fateful day, you had to leave, you went away. A sadness filled me up inside, emotions that I could not hide. Tears, they came, sadness, too, all my emotions, just for you. Time will heal, so I was told. But time could never fill this hole. Here in my heart there is a place, you’re always there, keeping me safe. It’s filled with love and happy times, it’s never dark, your light it shines. In heaven now you do reside, to watch over me with love and pride. I know one day we’ll meet again, until we do, just know how much I miss you, and you are always with me always. With all my love always, Your Mrs. J In loving memory and honor of our son, Christopher E.Cutchall, Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army.
In loving memory of Larry L. Johnson, October 3, 1937 – April 16, 2011:
