Last Saturday, my husband and I participated in our local "Run for the Fallen" event. We walked in memory of your son, Christopher Paul Abeyta. While we walked, we prayed for him and those who are still in Irag and Afghanistan. When we finished, we rang the large bronze bell in his memory and planted a flag for him. We are so thankful for his service and will think of him and his sacrifice each time we raise our American flag on our farm.

”Honor and Remember” - “Project Compassion” We love our Soldiers! We love our country and we cannot express enough love and compassion to the families of our fallen heroes. War does not discriminate – It breaks our hearts to see the faces of the fallen. We want to give this gift to the hero’s Mother, Father and/or spouse. We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization! Over 1,800 portraits have been completed and shipped to the parents and or spouse - at no cost as this is a gift from one American to another!
This is a gift! We have some wonderful sponsors who help with the costs, and only want you know that we care.
Contact us directly at Projectcompassion@manti.com or go to www.heropaintings.com . If you have already had a portrait completed, we pray that you are enjoying the portrait and God Bless You.
Sincerely and Respectfully,
Kenna

To the family of PFC Hardt, My deepest sympathy for the pain you are going through. No one should have to go through what you are going through right now. My name is Betty Nielsen with Freedom Quilts the founder of this non profit organization. We make it a point to try and make a free quilt for the parent and spouse of our heroes. Hopefully if I have the corrected address you should be receiving a quilt from us to honor a true hero that gave it his all.

Dear Brave SGT Christopher Abeyta,

The willow bends on God's green Earth, but its spirit is left intact. Sometimes it breaks and we mourn for something which was so fine. But in its loss we remember days spent in its shadow, sheltered from the hot summer sun. Though our time with you on this same Earth is now broken, those closest to you will always remember the days when you were young and strong and gave them the same comfort and memories as the willow which was so fine. Sleep well brave son of a grateful nation. May God always cradle you in His arms.
August 10, 2009
To thw family of Sgt, Abeyta I am sorry for your loss. I am sorry for our Nation's loss of another brave hero.Your wish that memorials be made to Spc Cain's family speaks in volumes about you and your son. Your son is buried in the same cemetery as my parents. I lost my Dad in Nov so I think your son is close by. Please get in touch with me I would love to honor your son when I visit my Dad. I think I met you at Cantigny in a troop support concert.I keep you and yours in my prayers. Your son will not be forgotten.

To the Abeyta family,

There are never simple explanations or answers when a parent outlives a child, even if the "child" is an adult, as your son was.

And yet his choice to wear such a clearly identifiable uniform to work every day will never be forgotten, nor will his and your sacrifice be ignored or dismissed by those who never had and never will wear such a uniform, such as myself.

May God bless your family and friends with strength during this time of sorrow!
May 15, 2009
To the family and friends of Sgt. Christopher Abeyta, I wish to add my condolences for the loss of Sgt. Christopher.

We would be honored to have you join us. God Bless You. Lynne O'Donnell, RN, MSN, ANP

To the Abeyta family,

I know there are no words to say, except how sorry I am for your loss. May you hold Christophers' memory in your heart and please remember he shall never be forgotten.

...For you every single soldier
Those who served so honorable
Your life was forever altered
While I’m home safe and free
I stand with grateful admiration
I stand respectful and so proud
I know I’m only a civilian
And I don’t even know if it’s allowed.

But I salute you; allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
Even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
My humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.
I salute you.

Prayer for Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen

Christopher, god bless you soldier and thank you for your service to a grateful nation, forever we will mourn you and all of our fallen heroes both before and after you. On 5/6/08 my nephew PFC Aaron J. Ward was killed in action in Iraq while on a routine patrol. My promise to him was that I would never forget him but also those fallen before and after him. When I made that promise to him the day we laid him to his final resting place I did not realize how often I would need to make entries on Legacy and it just breaks my heart knowing that so many other families have and will continue to feel the pain that our family has endured. Since the loss of my nephew I have written on every single legacy page of every fallen soldier and included a photo of my nephew. I encourage you to do the same to Aaron's page. I have done this to honor my nephew but to let you know Christopher is not alone and my nephew is with him and they are now in God's gracious hands waiting for us to join them one day. Abeyta family from the bottom of my heart please except my sincere condolences and may the memories of your Hero carry you through each day for he will never be forgotten!

To the parents and family, I want you to know that you are not alone in the grief you are feeling. I too know what you are going through and what you will go through in the coming weeks and months ahead. You will have many questions as to why? You will have many things to get ready or go through and that should be done in time. Sometimes it just can’t be faced and that’s ok, for you will know when the time is right for you. There is no right or wrong way to grieve it’s an individual journey that unfortunately we now have to take. I ask that God give the comfort, strength and courage that you are going to need. When and if the time is right for you please contact me. You can cry, vent, or just talk as only another person who has been where you are can really know what you are going through. May God continue to heal you as He gives comfort to you today and for the rest of your lives.

My deepest condolences on your tremendous loss. My son is in the Navy and I can't imagine what you're going through right now. Please remember you're not grieving alone, others share your pain. Without brave men like Sgt Christopher Abeyta, I would not have the freedom I enjoy every day. I feel it's my duty now to pay respect to him for his ultimate sacrifice. It's a small thing on my part but it's the least I can do. Christopher and his family have sacrificed so much. God bless you in your time of need and bring you peace.

Final Roll Call

Did you hear the sad news today?
A brave American Soldier, SGT Christopher Abeyta has passed away.
Called by the Supreme Commander over all.
Today he has made his final roll call.

Come Brothers-In-Arms; let us reverently bow and pray
For our valiant comrade, who has fallen this day.
We’ll drape his casket with a banner of beautiful hues,
Those glorious American colors: red, white and blue.

That star spangled banner he gallantly fought to defend,
Unyielding and undaunted, he fought to win.
He fought bravely and he fought his very best.
Now the Supreme Commander grants him, “eternal rest.

With dignity and honor, we’ll commit his body to the ground,
The bugler will sound “Taps” and we’ll fire the volley rounds.
The final military honors we’ll render somberly and ever so sadly;
“Old Glory” we’ll solemnly precisely fold and reverently give to his family.

Each Memorial Day we will recall Christopher’s name,
And attest that his supreme sacrifice was not in vain;
For this lasting legacy he gave to all generations;
“It’s honorable to respect our flag and to defend our great nation.”

So close ranks fellow warriors, for our ranks are thinning.
We must keep on fighting and keep on winning.
With pride and honor we’ll march and stand tall,
And we’ll proudly - proudly - salute “Old Glory”
‘til we join Christopher at our final roll call.

Farewell SGT Christopher Abeyta - Be At Ease; Rest In Peace
March 26, 2009
The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to SGT Christopher Abeyta our Brother in Arms. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Christopher. And to Christopher it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the ultimate sacrifice he made for his country while opposing enemy forces in Afghanistan. No greater love is shown than a man lay down his life for another. Christopher, you are a brave American Warrior, a true Patriot and a national Hero. With your passing, our Country has lost a National Treasure. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,409 members of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion in Shreveport, Louisiana, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Christopher’s family and loved ones.

I thank you as one military mom to another for your sacrifice.
