When Pop Walker sneaked out the kitchen door the other day, it affected all of us. He’s been a resident of the Rest of Your Life retirement home for several years now.
He still remembers who said what during combat in Europe, but has a hard time remembering if he’s had breakfast.

When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the Kings and the Princes are home,
