MEMORIAL POEM

Veterans Day Tribute

In Memory of Virgil Webb

WWII Veteran

Loving Grandfather of Joy Owens

April 12, 2007


I Know A Man


I know a man who lives

His life with dignity --

He lives every single day

Directed by principles

For right’s sake for all to see…



I know a man with honor

And integrity at his core --

He gives generously

And he never keeps score…



Each day allows him

The opportunity to live

Life based upon values

Set within his heart –

It is for right’s sake

That for over ninety years

He has distinctly been set apart…



He recalls his years

Aboard the Willie B --

Each day he reminisces

And relives his years

In service to his country…



He was a gunner’s mate

In World War II

As he served his country

And he is a very present

Part of the freedom

Each day we see…



There are those

Like Virgil who live

With honor and dignity

And it is for right’s sake

That freedom is a part

Of each day we see…



As a young man

Virgil gave his all

With honor and integrity --

Let us always remember

That it is because of men

Like Virgil that freedom

Rings true for you and me…©

Thanks for this inspirational, patriotic piece. I praise God for the freedom we enjoy because of so many who sacrifice their life to make it happen. God bless you Juanita and hope all is well with you...Sing-cerely, Randy Gene
