I just don't know...

As I prepare to take my father to the Veterans Hospital as he can no longer live alone since Mom's passing, I hear of yet another tragic loss...



Cpl Nathan Hornburg, a 24 year old reservist with the King's Own regiment, based in Calgary Alberta was killed on Monday when a mortar shell struck as he was attempting to repair a Leopard tank.

My everlasting thanks to Cpl. Hornburg for the ultimate sacrifice serving our country.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends. May God grant you peace knowing he died in an effort to help his comrades.


The commanding officer of the King's Own Calgary Regiment, Lt.-Col. Rick Coates, released a statement, saying:
"He exemplifies courage, dedication to his peers, and a commitment to the mission and to our country for which we are so very proud," Coates said. "He will be sorely missed by all who knew him."

Lest we forget...





I don't know when I'll write... if I do.
Please stay safe, and remember to love the one you're with.

Love you all more than my luggage!
Hugs, smooches and gropes!

Wishing you, the Chicklet and your Dad all the best as you make these transitions into new phases in your lives.

We had a funeral here last week. It's so amazingly senseless and I ache for all of the families it's tearing apart.

Hugs to you all.

I hope your Dad is doing ok. I understand the feeling of not wanting to write. Since my Dad died I find myself in a weird state. I go back to my blog, but sometimes I wonder why. My best goes out to you and I hope things get better.

I salute you Cpl. Hornburg for your sacrifice and service to your country.

What a brave and courageous man.

Hi Anndi, I hope that your Dad is alright, I have experienced some slumps in my life too after loosing my wife and it does make a person not to care what happens to ones self.

It really takes a lot out of a person when loosing ones mate for so many years. All my best to you and your family keep in close contact with your Dad, he needs you now more than ever, even if you are not sure what to say to comfort him during his times of feeling down, but just being there for him means a lot to him. My prayers go out to you all. God Bless

Your friend,
Phil

Anndi - I'm sorry to hear about your Dad's situation. This must be overwhelming for you and so sad to face. Take care of yourself and return when you feel like writing whatever. We don't expect you to be silly all the time, in fact, we want to hear whatever you have to say whenever you feel like saying it.

Terribly sad about your fallen soldier. Our prayers are with him and his family.
