Today is full of memories
of a BROTHER laid to rest
and every single one of them
is filled with happiness.
For you were someone special
always such a joy to know
and there was so much pain
when it was time to let you go.
That's why this special message
is sent to heaven above
for the angels to take care of you
and give you all my love.

"Since Lawrence loved poetry I thought I share this..A Prayer for Soldiers

Brave warriors, should fate find us in battle, May our cause be just. May our leaders have clear vision. May our courage not falter. May we be triumphant an earn victory as we show mercy to our enemies.

May our efforts bring lasting peace. May our sacrifice be always appreciated by those we serve. May we return to our loved ones unharmed. Should we be harmed, may our wounds heal. Should we perish in the struggle, may God embrace us and find for us a place in His Kingdom."

"Wow, really don't know where to start. I may not have met you, but, from everything my husband has told me you really are a true angel not only in his life but in many. You will never be forgotten, and I know that someday I will have the true privilege to meet you someday. Heaven has gained a wonderful angel that has truly earned his wings. God bless you and your beautiful family."

"Lawrence I remember the day we first met, you and Denise were in your matching cowboy boots and hats.  You all were both smiling from ear to ear and it was wonderful meeting you and seeing the love that you and Denise shared.   I enjoyed the visit I had with you both in AZ as we were celebrating our December birthdays.  Although we all miss you we know by faith that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord and we know that one day we will all be united again in eternal life.  So until that time hold things down SGM until we meet again!!!"

"I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing. SGM Campbell was my boss in Korea and he is one who taught me to follow my dreams and am most thankful for that for I wouldn't be who am today without his guidance. I often searched for him on Facebook and other social media and haven't been successful. I'm sorry that I never had the opportunity to thank you for all your mentorship and guidance."

"SGM Campbell was one of the my greatest inspirations in the military. He taught me to hold my head high even when all the odds were against me. I will never forget SGM LITERALLY being the first call I rec'd after I had my oldest daughter even though he was deployed and it meant a lot to me. He showed me that the Army was not so bad and everyone in it wasn't either. Such an awesome person!"

"I didn't know Lawrence, but i'd like to express my sympathy to his family & friends. I've lost many in death and i'd like to share the comfort that i received. In the bible, Jehovah God promises,through his son Jesus, to awaken all those asleep in the memorial tombs-and bring them back to life on a paradise earth-just as Jesus did when we he walked the earth. Take comfort in Jehovah."

"You never said I'm leaving You never said goodbye You were gone before we knew it And only GOD knows why A million times I needed you A million times I cried If love alone could have saved you You never would have died In life I loved you dearly in death I love you still In my heart I hold a place That only you can fill!! Love you Always!!"
