Inscription.  
Montgomery County remembers our own eleven
September 11, 2001

William Edward Caswell • Dr. Gerald Paul Fisher • Capt. Lawrence D. Getzfred • Michele M. Heidenberger • Angela Marie Houtz • Teddington Hamm Moy • Lt. Darin H. Pontell • Scott A. Powell • Todd Hayes Reuben • Patricia J. Statz • Ernest M. Willcher

Love is longer than death,
Memory deeper than anguish

You have been our strength
And our past.

We will be your future.


Life brings tears,
smiles, and memories:
the tears dry,
the smile fades,
but the memories live forever.
George Bernard Shaw

"Don't look for me here
I wouldn't be here

Why cry for me
I will be flying

Look for me
when the time is right

You will find me
I will be there

Just do not look
for me here"

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Carry on, you will always remember
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
Now

Live as though
you will die tomorrow,
but learn as though
you will live forever.

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of
intelligent people and
the affection of children;
to appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to leave the world
a bit better…
This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am carrying on
a great project
and cannot go down.
Nehemiah 6

To everything there is
a season and a time
for every purpose
under the heaven.
A time to be born,
and a time to die;
a time to kill,
and a time to heal;
a time to weep,
and a time to laugh;
a time to plant,
and a time to reap…
Ecclesiastes

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred,
let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair; hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
St. Francis of Assisi

The proper function of man
is to live, not to exist.
I shall

not waste my days
in trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.
Jack London

What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now forever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind…
William Wordsworth
