To the family of Captain Secher:
I am a mother who lost a son, while he was in the service. The death, of a child, is the worst tradgey that can happen, to any parent.
May God grant you the strength and grace to carry on. Your heroic son would want you to do this.
Be assured that you will see him again, in God's own time.
It has been several years since my Christopher died and I feel the pain every day ... BUT, I have heard from him!
He loved to play the drums, in his spare time, and he was very good at this. One night, as I lay in bed, crying, it started to thunder, very loudly.
I knew immediately that this was Chris, playing his drums, from Heaven. This silly, (to some) experience, has helped me bear my pain. Everytime I hear thunder,I smile and know my son is thinking of his Mom!
Pray for a sign and some day it will happen. Mine was a long time coming or rather it took me a long time to recognize this gift, but well worth the wait.
I used to think that the call of the loon was the most beautiful sound in the world, but now it is the THUNDER!
I hope this little narrative and my prayers for you will help somewhat.
God Bless you and God Bless America.
