I just wanted to take a minute to tell you guys how thankful I am that so many of you have taken your time out to send well wishes to me and my family. Thank you so much for the cards as well. My brothers body arrived in town today and we were able to see the arrival and ceremony and it was very respectable and beautiful but so heart wrenching I could barely stand it. The visitation is tomorrow and the funeral Tuesday.

For those of you that are curious, here is a video news story that aired last night on our ABC station. I'm so proud of my dad, he did amazing.

Thanks, again. I really love you guys.

Your dad did really well on that interview. That's really nice that the news station did a piece on your brother.

I've been praying for you and your family every night. Also, if you have time, would you be able to email me your address? I have something I want to send to you.

Also, channel 10 in Virginia Beach did a very nice story on your brother. I'll try to see if I can dig it up and send it to you.

Thank you so much Erin. My address is 6004 Simplicity Ct Chesterfield, VA 23832. I would love to see the story on Channel 10--we saw the one on Channel 13 in Hampton but not 10's yet. Thanks again.

Their website's being a bit difficult right now, but I might try again at work tomorrow (assuming that my internet there is working). By the way, your dad really rocked.

Your Dad seems an amazing guy :) Thanks for the video link. I am not sure if I could cope with something like that happening to me :(

Please take care.

I echo everyone else here to say that you and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers all week. Your dad gave a very touching and heartfelt illustration of your brother. I'll be thinking of you here in Carolina. The next time I'm in Richmond I will definitely give you a call.
