I was in Iraq when the shooting was goin on. We were gluedd to the tv and in awe at what was goin on. Only months before, we were in that some building, we even talked with the civillian that was killed Mr. Cahill. I never knew SGT krueger, but to me we are all brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces. She will not be forgotten. She gave the Ultimate Sacrifice, along with the other fallen.
June 04, 2010
Amy, you were my best friend, you will never be forgotten. You have affected so many peoples lives in the years you were here. From this step foward I will look to live life with both my heart and yours. miss you and love ya forever.

to amy's family~i just want you to know that your daughter was a battle buddy of mine during a deployment to afghanistan in 2003. she was one of my very good friends there and we dont forget those that we care about when we deploy. it really hit hard knowing that she was taken from us. i refused to believe that it was her until i saw her picture in the news. my husband mentioned that he recognized her from a few of my pictures and i stood there in our living room, frozen in time. she will be missed but her memories will live forever. she was a wonderful soldier and a very dear friend. when we deploy to the sandbox, the people we are with become our family and she was loved as a sister. she was my sister in arms and stood beside me throughout the deployment. she was there to hold the US Flag when i reenlisted and stood at attention when i was promoted to NCO. there were three of us that were always together like family. she will be missed.
January 26, 2010
Her sacrifice for her country will not be forgotten! God bless all her friends and family.

to amy's family-i want you to know that I was very sorry to hear about your loss.

Hood tragedy. I pray that you find comfort in the love that Jesus Christ has for you. He offers Hope for you in the midst of deep sorrow.

I am so sorry to the family for this tragic, loss. I hope you can draw comfort in a verse in the Bible where it tells us that God is not the cause of our suffering at Job 34:10 where it says; "...Far be it from the true God to act wickedly. And the Almighty God to act unjustly!" Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.

I had the pleasure of knowing Amy....and this is what she taught me.
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets…so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance… take it. If it changes your life…let it. Nobody said life would be easy… they just promised it would be worth it. And for those of us who knew AMY … we were truly blessed! She was an amazingly strong, courageous woman who loved life, her family, her friends, and her country. She always had a smile on her face and she loved to laugh…she enjoyed life! She will be SADLY MISSED but more so, she will be FOREVER LOVED! R.I.P. MY DEAR FRIEND, AMY!!!
My deepest, heartfelt sympathy to Amy's family.
November 16, 2009
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this time of need.Although I am a complete stranger but You are a hero and will be missed greatly.Thanks for fighting for our country.

Our Loved One's has follow
God's lovely rainbow in the
sky;

All the way to the end of the
sky.

That leads all the way to the
other end of the Lord's
house in heaven,

So just keep on praying and
trust that God will send us
that same rainbow in the sky;

Where Our Loved One's are
waiting For You and For Me at
the end of the rainbow in
heaven.

A Reminiscence

YES, thou art gone! and never more
Thy sunny smile shall gladden me;
But I may pass the old church door,
And pace the floor that covers thee.

May stand upon the cold, damp stone,
And think that, frozen, lies below
The lightest heart that I have known,
The kindest I shall ever know.

Yet, though I cannot see thee more,
'Tis still a comfort to have seen;
And though thy transient life is o'er,
'Tis sweet to think that thou hast been;

To think a soul so near divine,
Within a form so angel fair,
United to a heart like thine,
Has gladdened once our humble sphere.

My heart is just broken for your entire family! Keep God & the Angels close in the coming days, weeks, & months.
November 08, 2009
Remember

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

By Christina Rossetti

November 08, 2009
Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
