Today, I am wearing a black ribbon over my heart.
Late last week, my friend Melissa, lost her dear husband Jerry in Afghanistan.
My heart breaks for her and their three children.
I cannot even fathom.
I cannot even put into words and explain to you the devestation of his loss.
Day is done,
Gone the sun,
From the hills,
From the lake,
From the sky,
All is well,
God is nigh.
Rest In Peace Marine.
