It was a very short time that I have known you but it seems like I have
known you forever. I just want you to know that you are always in my
thoughts. I wish many times that I would have traded places with you
so that you can be with your family.

My Son, it has been almost 2 yrs. since you gave your
life in service to our country and the wound to my heart is still as
fresh as it was the day I received the news. I just want you to know how
very much you are missed and loved. Your birthday should be April
20....you should be 28 that day. Instead, I will be lighting a candle in your
memory.... sitting and reliving some of my wonderful memories of you
as a sweet, funny and loving little boy who grew up to be an honorable,
respectful young man.Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and
shed tears for the loss of my baby boy who was always so very special and
dear to me.I have always been proud of you and shall continue to be,
as you are a true hero. I love you, My Hero, My Son.

I didnt get the privilage to ever meet michael, but i
feel I knew him as I worked with his wonderful mother, Vicki. She
talked about him every day and was looking forward to his coming home. But
his life was taken just days before he was to come home. Michael is
truly a hero. he certainly is one of mine. He and all the others who have
given their lives so that I may live in the land of the free!
SSG.Michael Dickinson will never be forgotten.

I love and miss you bro, you were the brother and friend a person could
ever have! I miss you everyday your pictures and accomplishments are
displayed all over my home and Recruiting office! Some people have told
me having pictures displayed of a fallen soldier in a Recruiting office
is too much! I reply by saying why it's reality Great Men and Women
die each day for Our Ungrateful Nation! I love you bro and where ever I
work or lay my head down you will always be displayed because you are My
Brother and My Hero!
Love Always Your brother 4-life
