I started the day working on some earrings ...and then came some very bad news....a loss so horrible I can not begin to imagine. My dear girlfriends son was killed in Afghanistan. I still can not comprehend this family's terrible loss. Eric was 20 years old...the same age as my son. He was a gunner in the Army and was killed while on mounted patrol, his vehicle hit an explosive device.This was his first tour and was expected to come home in two weeks. My thoughts are filled of him as an infant, toddler, and young boy to a vacation we spent together at the beach. God Bless Eric and his family and we thank him dearly for his bravery and serving in the United States Army to protect our freedom. It surely gives us pause at what is most important to us.
out of sadness you reach for what comforts you
