From Dan Richey 06/05/07:

I took a lot of pictures at my Grandsons funeral, something I don't normally do. my only son Aaron's uncle, was killed in a car accident March 21, 2007. Aaron came home on emergency leave for the funeral and that was the last time any of his family other than his wife, got to see him. We were healing emotionally when Aaron was killed after only a month in Iraq. The news was heavy on us all and we are still healing.
