Nicole: I am very sorry to hear about your son's loss. But I know that in your heart you feel that you were an awesome mother, you still have two children and a grandchild. God bless Khacob and my prayers are with you and your family.

So very sad. My son is a marine in Iraq and I understand the anguish of worrying everyday if they are okay. My heart goes out to you and your family. My prayers are with you! Pat
