Chris and family, Ron was a very special friend of ours from Al Gaim. He brought courage, honesty and love to all of us.
May God wrap you tightly in His arms as the days ahead unfold. Our prayers and love are with each of you. Our arms are holding you too. God bless you, Chris, from one Marine family to another. Semper Fi.

Chris, may God's grace, peace, and mercy surround you and may He hold you and your family in His arms in the coming days. I never had the opportunity to meet your special gentleman, but his picture and all the wonderful things you have told me about him says it all. What an awesome God given gift to have walked hand in hand, under the leadership of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Remember our eternal promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14..."Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him..." Chris, I love you!
