Dearest Elke,
You have our sincere condolences. Robert was a precious boy who grew up to be an exceptional man. It pains us to know what you must be going through. We know you will never understand the need for him to be taken so soon. Know that he will never be forgotten. He will live in the heart of everyone who had the honor of knowing him.
We love you,
Aunt Cindy, Kim and Katie

To Robert's family and friends-
My family and I are praying for you and your family during this difficult time. We send our deepest empathy as we lost our Marine on 11/30/05 in Fallujah. We are comforted to know that our Marines are serving their country with such honor and bravery. We are so proud of our Marines and all of our other service men and women for all that they have done and continue to do to keep us safe and to give us the freedom we have that so many take for granted.
They are true Heroes and need to always be remembered for their selflessness and sacrifice to better our world. We will forever be united in the loss of our heros. We are so sorry for your loss and hope our words will ease some of the pain, and maybe fill some of your emptiness.
Yesterday, Today, Forever – Semper Fi - Marines!
Our sincerest gratitude for their bravery-

Although our encounters with Robert were few, the impression he made was great. Clearly, Robert was an outstanding young man who was devoted to his country and the Marine Corps. We share in your loss and will remember you all in our prayers.

Condolences to the Family of Cpt Robert Secher:

I am deeply saddened to see that another soldier has been KIA in the Middle East. Our family wants you to know that we grieve with you over the loss of another precious soul such as Michael. I know from first hand experience what you are feeling and what you must be going through since I lost my son in Ramadi, Iraq on December 1, 2005, SFC Brent A. Adams.

I know there is nothing I can say at this point in time that will ease your pain and sorrow over the terrible loss of your brave and courageous son Michael. We know your hearts are broken and devastated and there is now a void and deep sadness in your heart that will never be filled. It is like a scar that will always remain with you. May it help you to know that there are others who share your pain, your agony and your sorrow over this terrible loss. While the pain will probably never leave but lessen some with time, we pray the Lord gives you comfort, peace and strength to help you cope with this earth shattering loss no parent ever wants to experience.

This is an extremely difficult time, but hold on to those wonderful memories of your brave soldier….the ones that make you laugh and remember with joy the moments that you shared. The laughter between all those tears is one of the ways that will help you work through your grief. Michael is a hero (a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities) and even though we were not fortunate enough to know him we pray for you and all your family and for all those men and women serving our country so valiantly. Our children have made the ultimate sacrifice and they will always be honored and never forgotten. Unfortunately these tragic events have bound all of us together and changed our lives forever. God Bless you and all those who mourn the loss of OUR FALLEN HEROES and thank you for the courageous service your soldier preformed for us all. We wait for the day we can be reunited once again with our loved ones in the Lord’s House. You now have your own guardian angel to watch over all of you. If you feel the need to talk about your son we would be glad to listen and hear more about the life of your loved one. It may help to talk with someone else who has lost their brave soldier too.

Sometimes words aren't enough to express ones sympathy for such a loss, but I pray you find comfort in your memories of Robert. I remember Robert coming into my office the day before his 17th birthday he could hardly wait until the next day. He had such a strong desire to become a United States Marine. His mother and father wanted him to sleep on it and if he did not change his mind then they would sign for him to enlist in the Marines and fulfill his life long dream. To Robert that was just a small technicality because he was not going to change his mind. He enlisted in the Marines and stayed in the Delayed Entry Program until it was time for bootcamp.
Robert was very focus for a 17 year old. He specifically wanted to join the infantry and then apply for a commission after his first enlistment. Even though, Robert could have stayed at Marion Military Institute and received a commissioned in the United States Army upon graduating (this is something only family and friends knew), he chose the Marines. Robert was just born to be a Marine officer.
Even though it has been over 16 years since he walked into the office, I still reminiscence (with great joy) with my family about the day he joined the Marines. Robert will surely be missed but rest assured that when St. Peter calls his name he’ll reply, “Captain Robert Secher reporting for duty!” Our prayers go out to his family.
