I'm sure it will and I meant to write, having but it came out haven't. The pain subsides but the memories are what you make of them. ((((((HUGS))))) to your wife.

You're right. The memories that I have, although few, are what keeps me going. I'm happy that he is where he is and that he isn't suffering or anything. He's whole and that's all that matters to us. Of course we would have liked to have our son with us but sometimes God creates a child so perfect that he decides to keep him for himself. Thats what another Marine told me. It brought tears to our eyes but they were joyous ones.

Whats up people. I have some good news. I've put on 7 pounds of muscle and I'm almost at my desired weight of 180 lbs. thanks to the P90X workouts and the local Y. I'm all smiles. Happy drinks all around!

I was in a rush the last time I viewed the posts in this thread...Im sorry for your families loss mate..reading about it just knocked me back some.
Best wishes to you and the family... Marine.
Fitting words escape me.....but remember....its all part of a master plan.

From the post you have made and the PMs we have exchanged...I know you are strong of mind.

Once again....my sympathies to you and yours mate
