Default Sad news..local Marine killed in Iraq

We learned today that a local Marine was killed when his HumV (spelling?)
hit a land mine. He attended the same high school as my kids did and comes from a wonderful family. Patrick joined the Marines two years ago, right out of high school and has been to Iraq a couple of times. Please keep the family in your prayers.

What a terrible tragedy for this family. They will be in my thoughts.

A young man who grew up on our street & went to school with my kids is in Iraq. His mother lives in Texas and when he was old enough he moved to the US to live with her. He had been in Army Cadets here in Canada since he was 12 years old and was thrilled to join the "real army" when he was old enough. He has had a couple of close calls. He's married to an American girl and they live in Georgia with their two kids.
All these brave young men and their families are in my thoughts constantly.
Nancy

This is sad news when our young die so early. My heart is truly heavy with each of these deaths.
I thank him for his service and hope God will hold his family close.

I cannot even begin to imagine the heartache and sadness each family who loses a loved one in war experiences. I'm so grateful to Patrick and to all the soldiers who serve this country.

I agree with ML. I have ultimate respect for those who have, do, and will serve this country.

My heart goes out to that family. I hope they realize how much of a hero their son is.

I am speechless when it comes to my feelings for patrick and his parents.
I look at all the friends and family I have lost in the past and hope they are all there to greet me when I pass.
