7. In memory of James E. Lovin, Sr.
1931 - 2001
I was what others did not want to be. I went where others did not want to go and did what others failed to do. I asked nothing from those who gave nothing and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness should I fail. I have seen the face of terror, I have felt the sting of fear and I have enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love. but most of all I have lived times best forgotten; at least, I am able to say that I am proud of what I am. A veteran who served his country.
This marker is one of many that has been dedicated by family members of our veterans.
