[Southwest face]

Those loving Heroes
good and kind
Beloved by those
they left behind
Forget them; no we never will
While life shall last
we,ll love them still.

[Southhwest face]

Death is swallowed
up in Victory

[Northwest face]

Greater love than this
no man hath. That a man
lay down his life
for his friends.
