Thanks Archon, for going and the description.

Just hearing Taps in my mind (again, dangit) brings tears to my eyes......

Much thanks from the Southeast for representing the club in time of this great loss. I was reading it aloud to my fiance and had to srop and read to myself with tears in my eyes when reading of the awarding Bronze Star and the Purple Heart

I know that there are many here that would have attended, and wanted to be there, given even the slightest chance. I wanted to give a good description, to try to fulfill that desire. To do even better, finally only of the local stations had a decent report. Chad has been over-shadowed by President Ford'* funeral. Be sure to watch the video on the right.

I didn't know if I would make it to post on here tonight because I was in bed right when I came home and didn't get to work tonight because of a migraine that is still nagging a bit. I'm not going to say too much but thank you to Archon for posting the video, I thought of doing it but I'm so tired and really am at a loss of words... the funeral really hit me today. I realize even more just how much I truly loved Chad and would do anything to have him back. Nothing is more painful than driving away with the view of Chad'* casket waiting to be lowered into the ground by fellow soldiers one of which was his best friend who told me he begged Chad not to go because he had had a dream of something happening to Chad. My mom told me the Ford family sent 4 floral displays to Chad'* family for the service because they didn't want him to be over looked. So rest assured it was a beautiful service and Chad would be so excited to see the expressway shut down for him. Goodnight for now, take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

Love,
Melissa
