Please know that just as your loved one remains in your hearts and minds; his sacrifice, and that of your family, remains with the people he died defending. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for his bravery and selflessness, or the heartache we feel for your loss. God bless and keep you always.

Dear Michael, Thinking of you as I always do each year at this time. I ran my first 5k seven years ago on this ominous day and so I never forget, I ran that same race this year too. The triplet are huge, 11 now.

Dear Melissa and Tim
This is April Michael's cousin and just a note to say that we are thinking of you both and Michael.
