Run for the Fallen in Milwaukee August 24, 2008

We were honored to attend the Run for the Fallen on the last day - August 24, 2008 - in Milwaukee, in honor of our Beloved Eric and all of our Fallen Heroes - from Wisconsin and nationwide. What a fitting tribute to our heroes.

Here is the link to the web site from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published on August 25, 2008.

May God Bless our Troops,

It was such a wonderful, comforting experience for Herb and I to meet all of you at our gathering this weekend in Appleton. To be surrounded by others who have experienced the same painful loss as we have is so comforting to us. We could just be ourselves and not worry about what anyone else thought of our actions or words - you are all amazing - Herb and I are honored to be a part of this family.

God Bless you Judith and Joe - you are both truly Guardian Angels for us… Continue

Two years have passed - time is speeding by

There is not one day that I do not shed a tear

I miss you so much my sweet beloved son

But I feel that you are near.

I know you are happy now that you are with HIM

My comfort lies in knowing that we will meet again

I know you will be waiting to greet me at the Gate

And for that reason honey I will continue to wait.

Until we meet again, My Hero, until we meet again.

I love and miss you… Continue

To my son Eric on the 2 year anniversary of his passing

Hello Son

I can't believe it's been two years
Your loved ones still shed plenty of tears
I firmly believe had you known your plight
You'd still have signed up and joined the fight
You proved me wrong and you were right
And even though we weren't real tight
I know you'll be there to greet me in the Holy Light
God Bless You Son
You are and always will be my Hero
All my love,
