Rest in peace, Carole Lombard (October 6th, 1908 - January 16th, 1942) 

"She left a trail of laughter when she walked 
Across this world which needs a laugh so much.
She did not care when pompous people talked
About her lack of dignity and such. 
For while her work was make-believe, pretense 
could never touch her gallant, generous heart 
And she was quick to help her flag’s defense 
And glad to know that she could do her part. 
She did not wear a uniform, it’s true,
 but she died none the less for freedom’s sake. 
You men shot down at Guam and Oahu, 
Ghosts of the Philippines, Midway, and Wake, 
Admit another soldier to you troop 
For she should march through time with your brave group!” - Ruth Arundel Piercy

Rest in peace, Carole Lombard (October 6th, 1908 - January 16th, 1942)

"She left a trail of laughter when she walked

Across this world which needs a laugh so much.

She did not care when pompous people talked

About her lack of dignity and such.

For while her work was make-believe, pretense

could never touch her gallant, generous heart

And she was quick to help her flag’s defense

And glad to know that she could do her part.

She did not wear a uniform, it’s true,

but she died none the less for freedom’s sake.

You men shot down at Guam and Oahu,

Ghosts of the Philippines, Midway, and Wake,

Admit another soldier to you troop

For she should march through time with your brave group!” - Ruth Arundel Piercy
