Lost a dear friend in Iraq

You may know Ryan Jopek this post, "The Son of Sammy." I am sad to report that he was killed two days ago in Iraq. He is the son of Staff Sgt. Brian Jopek aka Sammy. His death just breaks my heart. I will be going to see the family.

I'm just a random blogger with a husband in Iraq, but I'd like to offer my condolences to you.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I know this is a little late but wanted to let you know how very sad I am to read about the loss of Sammy's son.

When you say that this just breaks your heart I can totally relate. A little over a month ago a soldier from my town was killed in Baghdad. I have lost people close to me but this was so different. The saddness was completely overwhelming. I know from experience that your visit to see the family was very hard. I hope you also found comfort.

God speed Ryan Jopek. May the family of Ryan find peace soon.
