To the Family of Cpl. Aaron Ripperda
I wish I had the right words to say at this time, but I know there are none. I grieve for the loss of your beloved son and I know that I cannot fathom the pain you must be feeling. Your son will not be forgotten and what he did to help protect our homeland and our freedoms. It was his life that made him a Hero. It was his noble path that made him an American Hero. It was his ultimate sacrifice that made him a Fallen Hero. May God carry him to Heaven on His precious wings and give him a palace to live in. I pray that our Heavenly Father above will grace you with His love, His comfort and His peace. Heaven's Gates now has a new handsome Marine standing guard. Amen.
You have our deepest sympathy and most heartfelt sympathy on your loss of Aaron...and our pledge to remember.

the glory of being a "MARINE" is what most young boys dream about. all the pomp and sircumstance that goes with it. they never think about death, just standing on that wall so we do not parrish as a nation. freedom don't come free, ohhhhh how i wish it did. you paid the ultimate price, marine; made the ultimate sacrifice for love of country. we, as a nation, thank you for your love of country and fellow man, wish you GOD'S SPEED, and hope your sacrifice was not in vain.
