I am so very sorry for your loss, I myself just lost my best friend of 26 years, he was in the Marines and was serving in Afghanistan! Stand strong and just remember they died as true American Heros! Words can't explain the hurt we feel right now but time heals all wounds, I just constantly think of all the amazing memories I have and that's what keeps me going! God Bless you and your family, and I thank Jonathan for serving our country so proudly!

Sometimes when there are not words there are memories. And when memories fail us or are too painful, there are tears. And when tears, too, fail us we find the courage every day to let the light of our lost loves shine through us. It is then that we have not lost them. Peace.
