In Flanders Field, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders Field, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
UPDATE: immediately after posting this but before
forwarding it to him, received a brief email of
gratitude from Eric for the support he is receiving.

Dear MODS and so many...
On behalf of Eric, please keep holding him and the
families of those lost close in your hearts.
I received only the shortest email after his return
from the first SEAL funeral in Virginia Beach...
As we approach the tenth anniversary of those
lost in the attack on 9/11, this is a particularly
poignant time for all of us and I feel we have
never been MODS For Life more than now.
We have seen so many MODS comment that
they have felt our love and prayers so it's a
tried and true blessing that as a MOD Nation
we do have the privilege of comforting so many
grieving at this time. I do not know how many
funerals Eric will be attending but do imagine
he needs us now.

On a personal note, since I am not on FACEBOOK
nor any of the chat rooms, many gracious thanks to
those of you who have sent me comments from these
sites. You know who you are. And I am deeply

Your1SkatrPie for Life
