Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

Col. Thomas E. Parsons, USA Ret., was interred at Arlington National Cemetery yesterday.
Good-bye, my old friend. If there's anything waiting for us, pick out a trail and we'll go hiking when I get there.
