A Period of Grieving

So many tears have been shed, so many happy memories and bonds remembered. Yesterday the world lost a most amazing man in a firefight in Afghanistan. A true solider, a loving husband, a spitfire spirit, and an all around valuable human. We've been in touch with many of our military family and we're praying for the family and wife of this fallen hero.

The whole loss has had me thinking about how little the American public is exposed to the ongoing conflicts overseas. We know and focus so little. Please continue to keep all our soldiers and their families in your prayers and lift some extra support out of your hearts for our gal Maggie and her family.

In the coming weeks, if possible, we all hope to make it to the stateside funeral....

Words can't express the sadness that comes from the loss of such a wonderful man. His life is being remembered the world over.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. What a difficult time for his family. You are all in my prayers.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. That is so sad. I do think the American public has sort of been desensitized from the losses that continue to occur over there. :(
