Dear Sarah,
Beautifully said. I, too, think of the Sims family often, and I didn't know them at all. This is why it's important for you to write, Sarah. You are our voice; you convey the message to the Sims family and all the families who have lost loved ones, saying things to them that we feel, but never have the opportunity to say to them. May God bless all of our military families today and everyday, those serving and those at home. Yes, we will remember.
Your Mama

I am not your mama, but I am certainly proud of you, and of your way of saying what so many of us feel.
You may not know, but you were in my mind in much the same way all the while you waited for your husband. I remember WWII and my uncles and cousins were away in the war. I know what you went through, as much as anyone could imagine it. Thanks, you too, are a hero. Ruth

Whatever words are in your heart, you must speak them.people need to hear or read them. They want to know that there are people that are grateful for the sacrifices made by love ones that are no longer in this world.As a daughter of a retired
Air Force services member and the mother of a 1AD
Soldier stationed in Germany, I never go through a day without thinking of those that gave the ultimate gift, so that I might have a life of Freedom and Happiness, and always, always, their families are right in the middle of my thoughts.
I can't really call them thoughts, they're prayers. Prayer's of thanksgiving. I want them all to know how grateful I am that they lived and breathed and they made a difference in my life, even if they didn't know me. I know them and I know what they gave up, and I will never forget, not ever....Thank You........

You have said it very well for all of us. We Aggies find the sacrifices of our soldiers particularly inspiring to us. But it takes mostly the former students to recognize the tremendous sacrifice Mrs. Sims has made. (Something about marriage and kids makes that happen).

Mrs. Sims, you have our deep and undying affection, and our love for you and your family is strong. Sean symbolizes the "burning desire" to beat the hell out of tyranny and injustice in the world. And you are our inspiration for trying to do so. God bless you and Sarah for being who you are, and for giving us former students faith in the future of the country. Because we are always Aggies. Because we are always true to each other as Aggies can be. We're from Texas AMC.

You have my undying respect.

Class of '80
