To the family of PFC Sergio Abad,
I wish to express my condolences for your loss. I know the pain you and so many families of Chosen Company are going through now. I lost my son from Chosen Company’s second platoon in January. My son was proud and honored to be able to serve with the heroes of the 173rd. Their legacy will live on with their brothers-in-arms, family, friends and a grateful nation. Today in the prayers of our church we prayed for Matthew and his recently fallen comrades. Though all of this pain, I can imagine a joyful reunion of these brave men in heaven.
“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” Kahlil Gibran
Sincerely,
Colleen Kahler

To the family and parents of Segio I want you to know that you are not alone in the grief you are feeling. I too know what you are going through and what you will go through in the coming weeks and months ahead. You will have many questions as to why? You will have many things to get ready or go through and that should be done in time. Sometimes it just can’t be faced and that’s ok, for you will know when the time is right for you. There is no right or wrong way to grieve it’s an individual journey that unfortunately we now have to take. I ask that God give the comfort, strength and courage that you are going to need. When and if the time is right for you please contact me. You can cry, vent, or just talk as only another person who has been where you are can really know what you are going through. May God continue to be with you and heal you.

To SPC Abad: You were an amazing Soldier, and I was proud to have been your first squad leader. You helped me a great deal when it came time to train the rest of the squad. Thanks to your eagerness to continually improve in everything that you tried to do, our gun became the fastest, most skilled Mortar Team in the 173rd ABCT. Thank you for serving our country. It is because of brave young men and women such as yourself that it is such an honor to serve in the Armed Forces of the United States! You will be missed forever, and I will see you at the Great Drop Zone in the Sky. Sky Soldiers, All the Way, Airborne.

To the family of SPC Abad: My family and I are truly and deeply saddened by your loss. It was an honor and a privilege to serve beside Sergio. Whether I was acting in the capacity of his supervisor or his equal, he always showed the proper respect. I will always remember Sergio zooming down the hallway of the barracks in his rollerblades and on his bike. He was excellent at entertaining his fellow Soldiers, and he always put others needs before his own. He would gladly give another Soldier his meal when food was short, even though, many times, that meant he had little to eat. He gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, so, therefore, if you need anything, please let me know at the e-mail address below and I will do whatever I can to get help for you

Sergio, you were such an amazing person filled with so much light and passion. Through our light encounters in high school and unexpectedly celebrating the new year with you, I have kept you in my thoughts. You were one of those people that are hard to forget. It's unfair what happened; but the fact that you've made such an impact on so many people's lives shows how much of an amazing person you were. Let the world know how much we all care for you.
