The golden harps are ringing Sound celestial fills his ears Millions now in Heaven singing Greets his joyful entrance there We miss the father from our home; We miss thee from thy place A shadow o’er our life is cast We miss thy smiling face - We miss thy kind and willing hand Thy fond and earnest care. Our home is dark without thee, We miss thee everywhere.  A friend.

Memorial services with full military honors will be held Saturday at 3 p.m. in the Billings High School gym for U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Kevin Wade, who was declared dead by Marine Corps officials Tuesday morning. Wade, 33, a computer technician stationed in Okinawa Japan, was swept into the Pacific Ocean June 16 and is presumed drowned based on the length of his disappearance, said 1st Sgt. B.A. Vendergriff with the U.S. Marine Reserve Training Center in Springfield. The body of Lance Cpl. Johnson, no first name available, of Florida, who was also swept into the ocean with Wade, was found floating 11 miles out at sea the day after the accident. Wade's wife, Pam, told the Springfield News-Leader that her husband and others were playing volleyball during a get together. Several of the Marines decided to go swimming when Wade and another Marine got too close to the current of a drainage ditch and were pulled in. The ditch empties into the Pacific Ocean, she told the paper. The Marine Corps Judge Advocate General will conduct an investigation into the death and the investigation could take up to four months, Vendergriff said. Wade was a star baseball and basketball player at Billings High School, which he graduated from in 1975. The Wades have two sons, Kasey, 10, and Jon, 8. Attempts to reach the family for comment were unsuccessful.
