Default FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW HIM (A LOSS)*Guestbook link pg 10*

For those of you who may know me you know who Chad is and that he left for Iraq in August of this year. I recieved news from his mom today that he passed away Saturday morning from a roadside bomb. I'm not going to say much because even though we had broken up before he left I'm still having quite a rough time handling it and right now typing this is taking everything in me. I'm sorry for the unpleasant news but I thought I'd let those of you know, so no one wonders where he is after a while. I will be attending all services for him and will post the info as I recieve it. Hope everyone has had a better holiday!

Oh my God...... not Chad.......

This can't be happening. I think I'm going to throw up.

EDIT: This is absolutely shocking... I don't even know what to think. This is the most terrible thing I can ever remember happening on BC. Melissa, I'm so sorry that you have to go through this. Good Lord.... I don't even know what to say.....

I feel the same trust me I know how the sudden speechlessness goes. I'm going to bed for now. I seriously feel like someone just came and ripped everything out of me... and I don't know what to do from here. This comes just a week after I hit a deer with my new car and after another friend passed away about a week and a half ago. This has by far hit me the hardest though. Cars can be fixed, Chad will never be able to hug his mom again and I can never say sorry.

Melissa, I honestly wish I could come and sit with you right now. I wish we all could. I don't think I can ever know how you feel, but I want so much to share your pain. This is an awful turn of events, and I want you to know my thoughts are with you, as well as the thoughts of all BC members when they read this thread tomorrow morning. Chad was a class act, and while I did not have the privilege of knowing him personally, I am confident he believed he was doing the right thing in Iraq. This feeling is horrible, and if there is anything that this club can do for you or Chad'* family, we will jump to it in a flash. This is a family, and Chad was one of us. I am so, so sorry. God, I wish I could do something more for you and his parents.

Stay with us, alright? We want to make sure you get through this.
