William Penn Watkinson

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by J. Patrick Moran on December 19, 2006:

We have lost a true gentleman, great friend and a courageous warrior with the pasing of Penn. He is the truest of gentlemen and a great example of how to conduct your life. His life, actions and conduct definitely were ?Well Done!?. Time is the one commodity we cannot control and the sweetness of life, family and friends comes clearly into focus right now. He was the glue that held together our little E-1 group. i am sure his glue also held others tightly together. His passing weakens the fabric of our mortal life. But his example strenghtens our moral fiber. Hopefully, in times of need, I and others will be able to "Grip hands though it be from the shadows" with Penn and feel his strength. He was the best of men.
