    My deepest sorrows go out to someone who had to die so far from home, and to his family who has to go on without him. I wish them all well.

    I'm so sorry to hear.

    Sobering. The lost of a hero. Puts all other matters in perspective.

    To learn of this the same morning of the London bombings makes it pretty clear why these brave men's service is vital.

    My deepest sympathies are with you Mrs. Hiester. Your husband was a brave, and good man. I’m glad you had the time with him you had and am sorry for the loss of him.

    May God bless you and your family now, and forever.
