On this Memorial Day I wanted to send a note of thanks. I was there the day Cpl Abad went home to be with the Lord. I carried the very stretcher he laid on. I offered prayers for the whole family because I knew there were going to be tough days ahead. The images are still imbedded in my mind and I pray God has embraced your heart with his comforting Holy Spirit during this Memorial Day weekend. There are not enough trees to make the paper needed to write the words of appreciation for what your son gave for the lives of others. I count it a privilege to have been his chaplain.

May God be gracious to the entire family of Cpl. Roberto Abad.

As a proud Marine mom of Staff Sgt Abe Twitchell 1978 - 2006, just wanted your family to know there are lots of us out here who share your pride in your loved one as well as your loss. They died keeping the battles out of our own back yards and for that, our country will forever be indebted to those who have given all and those left behind.

I talk to you often Abad. I am sorry that I was not there this time, but you know that. You always had a thing for cleanliness, a perfect hair cut, and a squared away uniform. A lot of the guys are still in, whippin it on. A couple of them in the Drill Field where I know you would have been next. We all miss you. I am sure your little one is getting pretty big by now.
You were and honorable Marine and you will live forever in the stories that we tell our families.

Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.


The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”


I did not know Roberto, but I am remembering
his service. He is my hero. !

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

To the father of Roberto:

Dear Sir,
I read Roberto's Guest Book, and I was deeply moved. I grew up in a family of seven. My youngest brother died many years ago from a prolonged illness. I remember my father saying that there is NOTHING that can compare to losing a child! I cry for you, but I also thank God because "...Roberto will never know pain and suffering again". I thank God because "...He has wiped away all tears from Roberto's eyes..." God is the "giver and taker of life" and I thank him for Tania and the fact that she was having your son's child so that his line will continue.

I have been in the Ministry since 1979, and in 2004 God Blessed me with a "Personalized" tape ministry for our Troops. I will pray for Diego and trust that God will have his Angels forever encamped around him protecting him from seen and unseen danger!

I will FOREVER "Salute: Cpl. Roberto Abad!

Sorry this is not one of the listed fill in the blank tributes. You did me the honor of protecting my family, I will do you the honor of writing directly to you. I am a Grenada Veteran who saw my friends demise. I just wanted you to know that my son will always remember your face, my family will always remember your sacrifice, and I will always be honored to stand in your ranks. I thank you, I honor and respect you and my family will always consider you a true american hero. It is because of you I can write this. I thank you for your honor.

If this person can stand in battle to ensure my freedom, then I will stand in grief with his/her family to honor him/her. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guest book for the rest of my life, but I promised LE RON A. WILSON (a dear friend KIA 7/6/07, 18yrs old) that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.

Shinihg Words

The joy of the Lord is your strength.
God in me is infinite wisdom. He showa me what to do.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy path.
I can do all through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Naught can disturb me, for Chriat is my peace and my poise.
All things work together for good.
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.
Faith is the strength of the soul inside, and lost is the man without it.
The greatest teaching ever giver is--- "Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Col. 1:27).
God is my help in every need.

I am Florence McSween-Elkins, mom of Petty Officer 1st Class Joseph Adam McSween (EODMU-11) KIA 04-06-07 in Kirkuk, Iraq. I am sure Adam and Roberto are looking down on all of us now as well as telling us all is well with them and all the fallen heroes. I am sure they know how proud we are of them and the tears we shed are for our lost and the fact we miss them so very much and look forward to the day we can all be together again.

To the Family and Friends of this Soldier:
I will stand in grief with this soldier's family to honor him. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life, but I promised Brent that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.
We lost our son SFC Brent A. Adams on 12/1/05 and it seems like yesterday. I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero.
God Bless this soldier and family who gave all and God Bless legacy.com for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.

I believe that any1 that sacrificed their life for our country is a born hero. When people think of heroes they think of Martin Luther King or Harriet Tubman but no one really thinks about the heroes in Iraq. I really salute those who are brave enough to fight in a war for America.
May 28, 2007
I want to thank Cpl. Roberto Abad for his sacrifice for our freedom and the freedom of those in Iraq. He has paid the ultimate price and given the greatest gift to mankind that one can give (his life). I will continue to keep you all, his family in my thoughts and prayers. Please know that there is nothing that will take away your pain. However, peace and solace can come knowing that he is one of the chosen people in God's kingdom and rests in better place now. He is in God's paradise reserved for special souls like Roberto Abad.

We are sorry it took us so long to post an entry for your family member. We are trying to catch up after locating this website. God Bless Legacy.com for allowing us to honor these heros.

We can't imagine what you have been going through since being notified of the death of your young Warrior. The Military and families all over the USA and world are grieving with you and praying for you. What a very brave individual you have in your family that would give up a life for their homeland and its people so they can remain free. Your Freedom Fighter has served the Country above and beyond the call of duty, let no one ever tell you different. With the mission now completed your Warrior has been redeployed to Heaven to sit on the right hand of the Supreme Commander and Chief. The Father above has Roberto in his arms and will give him peace as well as eventually easing your pain and suffering. God speed to you and Cpl. Roberto Abad, our HERO. We are so proud of them that are willing to sacrifice for this great Nation, THANK YOU.

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.

Roberto - My family and I are thankful for the Bravery, Courage, Determinination and Service to fight for our country, (our freedom) from you , my son and all the others in our armed forces for the sacrifice made for us. You all will not be forgotten.

May he rest in peace knowing that he was loved and remembered by those who knew him as well as strangers who admired his courage and sacrifice? My deepest condolences, sympathy and prayers go out to the entire family. May God grant you peace, strength and comfort? I will keep your family in my prayers along with all the families of our American Hero’s. Another Fallen Hero --Thank you.

To the family of CPL. Roberto Abad I want to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. We lost a member of our family in November of 2004 and one of the good things that came out of that loss is that my 6 year old knows that he was a hero and will tell anyone who wants to listen that all soldiers are heros and I wanted you to know that Roberto was also a hero! I am very sorry for your loss. I wanted you to know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
