Wesley Garren was killed in action on Dec. 8, 1944.
To some the war is over, but to others it will never be. Our loved one, killed in action overseas, will ever live in our memory and we thus honor him with a tribute.
On that December morning, when the ground was snow-covered, the 326th Inf. was in battle and men were falling. And when the battle had ended, and soldiers gathered again, Wesley, like many others, had perished in his country’s service.
His body now lies in a lonely cemetery may miles away. How we miss him each day our words cannot express. He was kind and dear to us and we all loved him dearly.
But we must go on, though we will not forget his smiles, and precious memories of him will ever linger with us. And some sweet day we will meet him on the golden shores of heaven, to live forever there where there will be no more wars.
His sister, Elsie Lee Wilburn
