I sit here crying my eyes out....it just breaks my heart.
We have a dear friend nicknamed Double C who we know from our job, as a matter of fact I have known him longer because I used to run a day care where his son was one of my preschoolers..that was over 16 years ago. Double C is a single father, with a huge heart and a wacky sense of humor..just a Dear Friend..
He has a son who left for boot camp 6 months or so before our boys...so he has already been sent to Iraq.
Tonight we received a phone call that his one and only child, his son, Branden, has been killed in Iraq.
I am just beside myself...I watched that child grow into a beautiful man..with a heart just as big as his dads...here is the info we received:

Fatality Date: Wednesday, February 14, 2007

PLEASE say a prayer for Double C...I know he needs all the prayers he can get!!!
