Mother’s Day celebration

I am so sorry for both of your losses. Dear Mama…what you must be going through right now to have lost your sweet baby, and now your beloved partner and father of your children. I wish the world would stop turning for you while you grieve. I wish the words people said to you offered something for you more than hope and love. I understand only a small part of your pain… My husband and I are both Veterans, I myself suffer from PTSD and MST and our beloved daughter has been laid to rest in a National Cemetery as well, for three years now. I am lifting you in my heart…and here if you have any interest in reaching out to a Mama who understands a small part of what this must feel like. All my family’s love, Tamara

My heart goes out to you in your time of tragedy and loss. I am also a fellow Chief select and have lost too many brothers to suicide. Please know we are always here for you, and are united as a Navy family. I was recently nominated for the 22 pushup challenge but I chose to make a donation in honor of MAC Jason Andrews to Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), a great organization who that helps military families cope with loss. Instead of 22 pushups X 22 days, I donated $22/day X 22 days = $484, in honor of Jason. Please consider them as a resource, as well as me. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this absolutely difficult time, I am confident Jason is at peace.

Brother Andrews – your spirit will always be with your Brothers and Sisters of Class 123. I wished we had a chance to meet to get to know each other but I hope you have found the peace you were looking for and put your demons to down. Rest easy Brother – you stand relieved and as we will assume standing the watch.

I weep for your loss. You do not know me, but I saw the photo of Jason in the paper, holding his sweet baby girl, and it just broke my heart thinking of the loss of both of these beautiful, young people. A young man and his tiny daughter who were so very loved. It saddens my heart at such loss. We are reminded that this sinful world is not our home. We know that Madelynn has been at rest with Jesus for many years. Now, her Daddy has joined her and he is now enjoying a peace and joy that can never be found on earth. Those of you who knew and loved him can probably imagine his familiar and happy smile, that is now a permanent part of his new life.
I pray for the family that mourn their loss. I pray God’s peace that passes understanding in your hearts and minds. God is still good – and He loves you so much! And know, that even those of us who never knew Jason or you, we do care. May God bless you all as you carry on.

Sorry for the loss of your dear love one. Death is an enemy to us all. We can find comfort in God’s promise in the near future when no resident will say “I am sick.” The people dwelling in the land will be pardoned for their error. Isaiah 33:24 May your family find comfort in God’s promise that will take place by means of God’s Kingdom.
