Prayer for the Fallen

I have been extremely busy this last week. I was looking forward to getting back on schedule when I was taken down by the plague. When I returned to the bloggosphere, G-Man told me that Z over at geeeeeZ! had suffered a personal loss. Her husband recently passed. I do not personally know Z, nor did I know Mr. Z, but both were readers of my humble blog. Z has posted many comments here, has been supportive of a newish blogger, and I have come to think of her as a close blog friend. The loss of her husband diminishes us all. I have read several of his postings on her site, and feel that though I did not know the man, I know he was a comrade in arms. I do not know if Mr. Z served in this great nation's armed services, but I know that he served his nation well with his poignant writings. I once wrote a prayer for a friend who died serving his country in the military, and feel it appropriate to dust it off and post it here in tribute to a good man who has fallen. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and yours during this difficult time Z. God bless.

Fear not brave soldier, for you the battle is done. For you brave soldier, we will fight on until the war is won.
May the good lord lift you into heaven. May he take you unto him and welcome you into his arms. May he hold you close to his breast and sooth all you mortal hurts.
Rest now brave soldier, for you we will carry on. In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.

May I tell you that your comment on my dear Mr Z's passing left me speechless. Thank you, RWE.
What an amazing sentiment.
May God bless you beyond your wildest dreams.
