A LAST GOODBYE FROM
CAPTAIN GEORGE FLAVELL
I remember Carroll Jones very well,
he was a fine pilot and an enjoyable
crewmember to fly with. I last spoke
with him when he was a Douglas
Aircraft DC-10 Captain as was I.
We accidently crossed paths on a
layover in Lagos, Nigeria when
we discovered our mutual positions.
He was leaving the next morning for
London and I was leaving for

The Final Flight
© By Patty L. Hamon
I watched a shooting star
as it raced across the sky.
I was awestruck by it's beauty
in the darkness of the night.
Surrounding it like diamonds,
like tiny twinkling lights,
a million shining brothers
witnessing it's flight.
Sometimes in the evening
I will stand outside my door
and admire the peaceful heavens
and I'll glimpse a shooting star.
I'll wonder at it's glory
and the nature of all things,
at the silence of it's dying
and sweet sadness, it's death brings.
When the angels look down on us
as we go about our lives,
to them, a fleeting moment
like the shooting stars, we spy,
will our passing go unnoticed
into the darkest night?
Will we be a brilliant beacon,
like that star on it's last flight?
Lord, I want to shine that brightly
and like moths drawn to a flame,
bring others to Your mercy
and honor to Your name.
And when my days are finished
may You look upon my life
like a glorious shooting star
as I take my final flight.
