KEVIN:Thank you for your service to our country.
Losing a child is one of the worst things a parent can go through no
matter how they die. We are not put here to have to bury our children.
Norma, he was your child from another mother and the loss is at times
unbearable,but you will get through the tragedy and even though you have
to remind yourself to even breath at times the days continue to pass
and it is amazing that you still have him in your heart and always will
and no one can take that away!!!!
