Fallen Soldier Table
The rose stands for the family with faith and love for those who serve,
They're held with the highest respect for that's what they deserve.
A yellow ribbon is for the loyalty waiting for those serving abroad,
As we pray that they're watched over and kept close to God.
An inverted glass represents that the fallen can no longer toast,
They cannot be an honored guest or such a gracious host.

A Soldier's Prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep,
And hope my dreams are thoughtful and deep.
I pray that tonight I’m not awaken,

And wish that the next day will be blessed.
All I want is to sleep through the night,
So that tomorrow I’m ready for another fight.
