  1. God bless Ken/Ryan and his lovely family through this tragedy. You are all so brave. Stand tall and proud, and let his sacrifice be not in vain.

    We miss you!

  2. The White family has been in my prayers all week. May God's grace and peace keep filling you again and again. No doubt there are people alive today because of Ryan's (Ken's) service to our country. He deserves the highest honor and respect.

  3. God bless Ken and Brad and their families, and thank you both for your service to our country. You are true American heros.
