My Best Friend

Pvt. Paul Varner, 20, of Wildwood, Missouri. Died in training before deployment to Afghanistan.

No blogging for awhile.

For Ninja


(Allen Collins - Ronnie VanZant)

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.

Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I can't change.
But please don't take it badly,
'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't change.

I'm sorry to hear that DD. He'll be in my prayers.

This is awful news. I hope that he is at peace.

My sympathies.

I live in a heavily military area. I do not know someone who has not lost a close loved one. I know what you are going though. My condolences.

OMG! I am so sorry! There's alot of guys to show him around up there--and probably a few close friends and family. My heartfelt sympathies to you and Paul's family. All of you are in my prayers, DD. May Paul rest in peace and I'm sure God has already blessed him on arrival. (No check in needed there!) Hang in there, y'all.

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that you and I have something in common. Paul was my friend too. He has been on my mind a lot this past week...his birthday was July 5th. He would have been 21. He was a remarkable man, as I'm sure you already know. He really is missed, and there isn't a day that goes by that he isn't being thought about by someone who knew him.
