You, your son, and your extended family are in my thoughts and prayers, both for comfort in this time and for a speedy recovery for your son's brother-in-law. I am so sorry.
May GOD bless and comfort you all.
My condolences, thoughts & prayers.
Words of comfort often fall helplessly to the ground. May you and yours expierience peace.
It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.

More thoughts and prayers from North Texas.
I'm at a loss to say anything that hasn't been said already, except that I always hate to hear the sadness that visits some of our members. When it's "just someone else" it's easy to shrug it off. When it's one of you, I think we all hurt right along with you. All the best to your family, especially your son.....

Services were held at 10:00 a.m. yesterday morning for Ashley. It was the most beautiful service that I have ever seen. Letters from family were read, several poster picture boards were there to show her passage through life. Several awards were presented from the Ga, Air Nat. Guard. She had been chosen as Airman of the year, but had not been yet notified. She had finished in the top of her class,network security. Some very good singers to sing some of her favorite songs, and to play the flute which she loved. A 21 gun salute, and a presintation of the flag to her husband,and her parents. My son, is doing as well as can be expected, and I'm trying to stay strong for him. We are on our way to visit his sister and see my grand daughter which neither of us has seen yet. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. Philip
Times like these words just aren't enough. All I can do is offer my condolances and prayers.
"[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
They are left in full possession of them."
Zacharia Johnson (speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention,25 June 1778)"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." ~Alexander Hamilton
Philip - that must have been a very sad and yet proud event too.
Indeed, stay as strong for him as you can - it is perhaps the only option open that really helps. My heart bleeds for you all.
I meant to post another poem for you but only found it a day or so ago - so let me add this, in case it adds just a small morcel of comfort. I find it very inspiring.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush of
quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
FYI, the poem was written in 1932 by Mary Frye.

i know i am late here but i can not express my sorrow for your family's loss. Such people seem to be getting harder and harder to find. I hope the best to you and your family.
The services were actually Friday, that's what several days and nights with no sleep do for you. One positive aspect of this it brought her family and mine closer. But that was the kind of girl she was. Her marriage had transformed her from a outgoing teenager into a wife with direction and goals. She became her mom's best friend, seeking advice and doing projects at her new home. She defiantly left this world at the top of her game. Surprisingly to me the few times I had to take her and spoil her like my own, had made a lasting impression on her. Her mom has told me things that she had said about me in our short times together. They make me so sad that they were so few, but at the same time it just assures the feeling that I had for her.
