    So, so sad. They'll be in my thoughts...

    I always get nervous when I see my buddy in Iraq hasn't logged on for a few days. I know he chose to go over there, but still...

    Jeff,
    Thanks for the e-mail today, and thanks for posting this. The day after my last day in March, Lou took me to lunch. We talked about a lot of things, his son being a prominent topic of discussion. I know his helicopter had been fired on before -- and I have know idea what the cause of his crash was -- and I know it was a source of concern for Lou, even though he didn't dwell on it. It was obvious how proud Lou was of his son. My god. What a tragedy. I feel so bad for Lou and his wife and their other children. So sad. So sad.

    My condolences to Louis, whom I was lucky enough to get to talk to a little bit in January. A great guy, completely living up to what I'd heard of him.

    My thoughts are with him and his family.

    Apparently a scholarship fund in Bryan's name is in the works, so I will be sure to pass along more information on that when I get it.

    The flags were lowered to half-staff at work today, which I thought was very moving.

    I'm really heartbroken over this. If any of you know Louis, he is just a quality person. He's gone to bat for me personally several times in different situations, and really takes an interest in helping other people and being a major part of the community. It's a tragedy when something like this happens to anyone; but to see it happen to someone like Louis and his family just seems like the cruelest of cruel.

    This story is big news in my neck of the woods.

    It's sad to say, you pay a little more attention when something happens to someone from around your area.

    RIP.

    The services for Bryan are set for tomorrow (Monday) morning. There has been so much response and support for the family, some PR people are lending their help to get the word out (and stop the local TV media from making it into a circus).

    Here's some info from the release:

    And there's this...

    It's been said before, but it rings true: No parent should ever have to bury his/her child.

    My prayers go out to the Brewster family.

    my condolences, and remember your son for how he lived and not how he died.
