The worst thing possible has happened. I thought about it being a possibility all the time but now it's really happened. Two uniformed soldiers knocked on our door this morning to tell us that my sweet little baby brother is dead. Killed yesterday in Iraq in a convoy by a roadside bomb.

I'm completely numb, I don't even know how to digest it. My poor mom is in complete denial and is cleaning the house. This is the saddest thing I think I've ever witnessed. My other brother was notified in Afghanistan and is flying home in the morning, thank God.

If you believe in prayer, please please pray for my family. If not, please be thinking about us. This is the hardest thing I think I have ever/will ever have to deal with.

I wish I knew great words of comfort and peace, but I don't believe there are any. I am so incedibly sorry for your loss, just thinking about it makes me cry for you and your family. You will absolutely be in the prayers of myself and my family.

I can't even imagine what you're going through... it was always one of those things you tried not to think about when you had a partner/sibling/friend overseas. Just know that we're all thinking about you.

I don't have an account anymore but I just want to reiterate that I love you and your fam so much and I am there for you if you need anything. I know you want to be strong for them but you don't have to be strong in front of me or Ally. Just know I'm here if you need me.

The sinking in my belly as I read this can't even compare to the sense of loss and disorientation you're feeling. I hope the chords of your lives touched by him echo out into the world and bring good and loving things to everybody, so that even with his loss, his good and the love for him you feel is still vibrant and spirited through the years, decades, and centuries to come; even if the people touched don't know the force by name.

My thoughts are with you and your family.
