You are not forgotten
Poetry from Joe's mother affectionately known as "Mom" Heltsley
Friends who visit the Vietnam Memorial and then call to say,
"I saw your son's name written there."
It's like having Joe's voice saying
Angels in uniform were singing,
Golden bells were ringing,
As Jesus walked through Heaven's door,
The veteran in his arms wouldn't hurt anymore.
