"It is 5/21/07 1848hrs. I just met Mr & Mrs Frye today while delivering furniture to their home. Mrs Frye showed me Jason's room and all his Marine Corps items she has to remember him by. I am also a Marine and fought during the 1st Gulf War.
Jason I did not know you but you are a brother. We shared a common bound, which all marines share. We stand and fight when nobody else wants to. We stand for those who can't stand on their own and sometimes we give our lives for those people. Some believe what we do isn't right. To those people I say, Freedom is never free and sometimes we have to draw a line in the sand. Jason you gave your life for this country and all of it's people. I would gladly stand beside you and defend it and our beliefs. Semper Fi my brother.
From the halls of montezuma
to the shores of tripoli
we will fight our countries battles
in the air, on land and at sea.
First to fight for right and freedom
and to keep our honor clean
you will always find us on the job
the United States Marines.
Our flags unfurled to breeze
from dawn to setting sun
We have fought in every clime and place
where we could take a gun
In the snow of far off northern lands
and the sunny tropic scenes
you will always find us on the job
the United States Marines.
So here's health to you and our corps
which we so proudly serve
In many a strife we have fought for life
but we never lost our nerve.
So if the Army and the Navy every look on Heavens scenes.
They will find it's streets are guarded by Jason Frye A UNITED STATES MARINE.
Mr & Mrs Frye it was and honor to meet you today. My heart and prayers are with you and your family. Semper Fi

Angels Gather


In Memory of Jason Frye


Angels gathered round that day as they listened for Gods voice
Awaiting here beside me for to bring me to His throne
For in life I gave my self to Him .....that was my choice
And never did there come a time when I felt I was alone

Now I stand in Heaven, so close here to His side
And know that there are tears for me and hurting deep inside
God knows how you long for me and of every tear you've cried
And His love reaches out for you to pull you to His side

Every moment there with you was carried in my heart
And never once forgotten, never once cast aside
And until that day will come when we no longer are apart
I know that God is there for you,His love will be your guide

Remember me in love each day as we wait to meet again
Knowing all your love for me, I held so closely til the end
And now it's carried with me for in my heart has always been

Angels gather round you now to comfort through Gods' touch
I know that He'll hold you close and soon the pain there will subside
Just know that I too am with you for I love you so much
In spirit I am with you,for there in your hearts my love will forever abide

WE LOST OUR SON LAST YEAR IN BALAD,IRAQ. GREGORY AND ESPECIALLY: JASON! HAS NOT GIVEN HIS LIFE LIFE IN VAIN! CONSIDER THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF AMERICAN'S. AN JASON IS THE ELITE OF ALL AMERICAN'S. ANSWERING THE CALL TO SERVE HIS COUNTRY! UNSELFISH RISKING EVERYTHING FOR ALL AMERICANS! THAT IS A SIGN OF TWO THINGS: ONE JASON COMES FROM VERY LOVING AND AND ACARING FAMILY. THAT RAISED ONE AMAZING SON! TWO WITHOUT QUESTION: AN AMERICAN HERO! JASON HAS TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF SO MANY. THOSE HE TOUCHED; ALL HOLD VERY PRECIOUS MOMENTS THAT JASON SHARED WITH THEM. AN JASON ANOTHER REASON OF THE MANY REASONS. YOU WILL NEVER EVER BE FOGOTTEN! ALL YOUR BORTHERS AND SISTERS SERVING APPRECIATED YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY AND TO THEM. I KNOW MY SON GREGORY, HE DIDN'T KNOWN EVERY SOLDIER. YET, HE CONSIDERED YOU ALL HIS BROTHERS AND SISTERS. TELLING ME; YOU NEVER NEED TO WORRY DAD. WE ALL HAVE ONE ANOTHERS BACK. AN IF; JUST REMEMBER I WAS A SOLDIER! JASON YOU ARE A SOLDIER AND I SALUTE YOU. TO YOUR FAMILY WORDS ARE WORDS TRUE. AN WE ALL DEAL WITH OUR LOST DIFFERENTLY. MY TEARS NEVER STOPPED FOR GREGORY, AS IT DIDN'T FOR ALL OUR FALLEN SOLDIERS AFTER HIM, NOR WITH JASON. EACH ONE I FEEL I LOST ANOTHER SON AND DAUGHTER! AN AS MUCH AS THAT HURTS ME! I KNOWN WE HAVE TO HONOR THEM NOW! SO I SUGGEST YOU REACH OUT TO YOUR COMMUNITY AND POLITICAL LEADERS IN YOUR COMMUNITY TODAY. JASON DESERVE'S TO BE HONORED; WHAT BETTER WAY THAT A STREET NAMED AFTER HIM IN MEMORY OF HIS SERVICE TO HIS COMMUNITY, COUNTY, STATE,AND COUNTRY. IT IS THE LEAST HIS COMMUNITY CAN DO FOR HIM TODAY. TOMORROW COMES LATE FOR WWI, WWII, KOREAN, DESERT STORM AND ETC. WE ARE JUST HONORING THEM NOW. WE CAN NOT ALLOW THE FALLEN OF AFGHANISTAN-IRAQ TO WAIT ONE DAY LONGER; NEVER EVER PUT OFF WHAT? YOU CAN DO TODAY! FOR TOMORROW COME AND YOU MAY NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO. JASON GOD BLESS SOLDIER!"
