Dear Seaman Family,
I stood outside on Kalmia for 3 hours with my three kiddos last night. I wanted to be there when your family drove by. We wanted you to know that Eric's service... his sacrifice... and the sacrifice your family will continue to make every single day is not meaningless. America appreciates and honors the men and women who so bravely give of themselves daily. May time ease the pain of your loss. And may you lean on God when it is too much for your human body to take.
