  2. I pray that God will bring comfort to you as he has comforted my family and I. Your son as well as my son made an ultimate sacrifice for our country. Only time can heal our woound and it may take a long time but the blessing we have is the memories he left for us to remember them as they were and the blessing God gave us in sharing his creation and trusting us to raise them and live with them for the little time he granted us on this earth.
