Beardstown does its citizens proud
Ole Beardstown, you done us proud today.
One of America’s young and strong soldiers died while serving his country; he left behind a loving wife and three young children.
Ole Beardstown, you done us proud today; you shared a hand, said a prayer, and shed a tear. Our streets, roadways, and square were filled with flags, salutes, and hands held over their hearts as this young Marine was carried to his final resting place.
