~I am Deeply Sorry for the Loss of this Young Hero~
We are Proud families...those of us who see our Young Warriors off, to serve in the Armed Forces, of this Great Country, we live in.
And we are Anxious as parents and loved ones, for their safe return.
All of them giving up their youth and the pleasures of home, so that our ability to live in the comforts, we have been accustomed to, is not interrupted.
Some of them...Too Many, Too Young, Give All of their Tomorrows for ours.
As a parent, who has lost a daughter suddenly and as a sister, who has lost a brother to war, I am aware of the deep and devastating pain that a loss such as this, brings. the overwhelming heartache, that seems to surface through our shock, as the time passes.
The never ending void, that is passed on to us... Accompanied by an American Flag, Honorable Medals of our Hero's accomplishments, plus a multitude of memorials and remembrances. All given in honor of our loved one.
What our young son, brother, sister, husband, father or brother-in-arms, has left us, is a Legacy to be passed on through generations....An Overwhelming sense of Pride, A Treasure of Loving Memories and the knowledge that there is, in each of these families, A True American Hero, to be Honored and Remembered through every generation.
May we Remember Always, the Sacrifices made, for our Country, by each of these Young Warriors. Those who have "given some" and those that have "given all".
May the Peace of God and the memories of your Brave Young Solder, remain in your hearts always and give you each, comfort and strength through the difficult times.
The Sacrifice that Kevin has made, will not be forgotten.
You are in my thoughts and my prayers.
As President Harry S. Truman said, "OUR DEBT TO THE HEROIC MEN AND VALIANT WOMEN IN THE SERVICE OF OUR COUNTRY, CAN NEVER BE REPAID, THEY HAVE EARNED OUR UNDYING GRATITUDE. AMERICA WILL NEVER FORGET THEIR SACRIFICES"
