The Amver family sadly lost three airmen from United States Coast Guard helicopter, CG-6017, from Sitka, Alaska when their aircraft crashed on July 7, 2010. You can read about the crew here.
This passage is for them. I saw it inscribed on a granite overlook on the Hudson River in New York City. The author is unknown.
Who can sail without wind
Who can row without oars
Who can say farewell to a friend
without shedding a tear
I can sail without wind
I can row without oars
I can not say farewell to a friend
Without shedding a tear
