I am having the same problem seeing as you are, why do good guys like him die so young? Pray for him and his family.
Thanks for the photos....nice tribute to a great warrior and great American Hero!
I just finished his book American sniper did a little choking up knowing he was gone.
I got tears in my eyes
A couple of the Patriot Guard Riders crashed along the route, no info is yet out on the extent of their injuries. Hopefully they are minor.
Thanks for the news update at your link.
I have friends who live up and down the I-35 corrider from Dallas to Austin. The various pictures and videos they have posted on FB are inspiring. One of my proudest days of being a Texan.
My wife and I drove down to Austin from N. Texas last night and we kept seeing signs about a funeral procession on I35 and we could not figure what if meant. Now we know.
Any body know how to get this big lump from my throat?
What strikes me most is his smiles. What an outstanding young man, what a true American hero, what a waste his passing was.
