I do not know your family. But I am so thankful for your husband's and father's work. Everyday my life is going to be different because I have encountered Paul's story. As a fellow Missouri resident, I can look upon the beautiful trees change color in the autumn and enjoy the white blankets of snow on the valley because of Paul and the other soldiers. Paul is a hero.

To the family of Paul, My sympathy for the pain you are going through I know your hearts are broken and the pain is one that unless we walk your shoes we have no idea. My name is Betty Nielsen the founder of Freedom Quilts I make quilts for fallen soldiers families for the parents and spouse we are sending you a quilt we just hope it will go to the right address. We thank you for bringing into this world a hero that has given his all to protect this country. Without heroes we would be like the third world country so thank you and God bless. My website is www.freedomquilts.net and if you wish to contact me my email is debeniel@ncn.net We are trying to make sure all our fallen soldiers are not forgotten. We Americans are very proud of your husband and pray every day for God to give you comfort and for our soldiers to all be safe.

”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

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

Sgt Brooks Family:
My husband is in Iraq now with the NCARNG 30th HBCT...My deepest sympathy for your family...
I would like to share with you that the federal government has decided to pay for college education for each child who has a parent who died in the line of duty while on active duty, this became effective 8/2009. Please see "Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry" scholarship information...it is part of the GI Bill now....Hopefully, this will be of benefit to your children.
God Bless you and strengthen you, may he watch over you and your children.
Sincerely
Eileen

Sgt Brooks Family,

I just want to let you know that I am praying for each and every one of you. I did not know Sgt Brooks personally but have heard stories about him from my husband who was deployed with him. He was a great soldier and you guys should be proud. May God bless you and keep you in His hand. Thanks to you and Sgt Brooks for defending and protecting our Country. Your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
