Charlie Brown - Pre Chuck
I want to say youwill be missed even though I never ahd the opportunity to meet you. I was able to keep in touch with you for a short time via email while in Afghanistan until you went on your mission. I prayed for you all the time that the angels of God surrounded you every day that you were away from my baby sister. She will greatly miss you as well as those beautiful children.
Love - Lisa (mojone)

Mr. & Mr.s Wyckoff -
I pray that God will give you comfort, peace and understanding about your loss. There are never any words that can take away your pain, if I could take that from you, it would be mine to keep. On the more positive note, please be assured that I have several people I am affiliated with from Washington state, to Colorado (my churches) praying for you and your family. May God bless you and touch your souls. Sincerley - Lisa Garcia (Erikas 2nd oldest sister)

Erika Garcia Wyckoff - I do not have any words for you. It pains me too much to see you in pain but I know God is with you, he always has been. You are a new wife, were to be a new mother (again) and you are now lef to be the strength for your family. God will give that strength but it will come in time. Your time is to mourn, to think, to rejoice, to be thankful, and most important, to not lose your sight in God. I love you very much, and I am here for you even though we are so far away. Love with all my heart - Lisa Garcia Torres (mojone)

Keep this Going!


If I get this 100 times, I will continue to forward it to others in the hopes that they will do the same. We must never forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be eternally grateful.
KEEP THIS GOING PLEASE



I watched the flag pass by one day,
It fluttered in the breeze.



A young Marine saluted it,
And then he stood at ease..



I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
With hair cut square and eyes alert
He'd stand out in any crowd.


I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil
How many mothers' tears?


How many pilots' planes shot down?
How many died at sea
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
No, freedom isn't free.

I heard the sound of Taps one night,
When everything was still,
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill. I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant "Amen,"

When a flag! had draped a coffin.
Of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.

I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea


Of unmarked graves in Arlington.
No, freedom isn't free.
