    I send my sincere condolences to the families and friends of these Heroes.

    Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on.
    Cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone.
    Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,
    for as long as there is memory, they live on in our hearts.

    Accepting a loss is truly difficult, but is just another test of faith. God only gives us trials lesser than our strength and assistance beyond our eyes can see. I offer my deepest condolences to these true American heroes.

    It is with the utmost respect that I offer my condolences to the families of true American Heroes. May you all forever rest in the knowledge that your duty was well done and you have the gratitude of an entire nation for your sacrifice and your service. I know that each of you will now be in the company of your fellow veterans who have gone before you and who will welcome you at Heaven’s Gate upon your arrival. Stand down now and know that we will carry on your legacy of freedom for all our citizens. To each family I ask that God comfort them now in their time of despair and remain with them as they adjust to their loss.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    RIP Hero's. Each of you have made the ultimate sacrifice for the nation and left behind families who mourn your passing each and every day. Thanking your for your service and sacrifice seems so little for you who have given so much. Hopefully, the nation you left behind will live up to the expectations you had for it when you took the oath to serve. I for one will do everything I can to assure this country remains the best example for the remainder of the world to emulate. Rest In Peace
    George,
    Your humble brother honored to be standing for you.
