Hi there my wife Jane who passed away last November would have been commemorating todays 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings and in particular the brave young men and women who lost their lives in the 2nd world war conflicts,to day I would like to pay my respects to those people who died and to their partners,wives,husbands children who were feeling like I do now with the loss of a loved one.
One of our favourite poems from the film carve her name with pride(Virginia Mkenna) based on the true story of a brave young French resistance fighter Violette Szabo 26 who was tortured and executed by the Nazis for this poem used as a wartime code written by a man Leo Marks and I quote:
The life that I have is all that I have and the life that that I have is yours
The love that I have of the life that I have is yours and yours and yours
A sleep I shall have a rest I shall have yet death will be but a pause for the peace of my years in the long green grass will be yours and yours and yours.
I am sure it as been quoted on this site before but today I use it to pay respects and salute those brave people who died and mourned in the conflicts as would my dear wife Jane had she been here
