My grandfather died last week, and i couldn't stop crying at the funeral, the Marine Color Guard was their and they did the 21 gun salute and they played Taps, it was so beautiful I couldn't stop crying.

My grandfather served his country loyally in WW2 and he was always proud to be a Marine, even at the age of 84 his Marine Corps pride was more than visible. He served in Iwo Jima, and he was buried alive, luckily his friend dug him out or I wouldn't be here today.

While I was in Kosovo I got the message that grandma passed away earlier that day... I felt very helpless and it was really hard to try doing the normal work while waiting to go back to Sweden for the funeral...

This past summer, when I had to bury to of my Best firends who had died in IRAQ I myself could not face thier parents.

They were Marines and they won't be forgotten.

Honestly, I've had alot of bad moments, and been through many hard things, but I have not really had many sad moments. I've seen things in my 27 years that most people do not see in their entire life... Mostly violent things. But those things were not sad, per se.

I think the saddest moment was when I found out Dexter was being deployed. I'd never been through a deployment before, and he couldn't tell me the way he wanted to tell me. I'll never forget how I felt at that moment. I knew what being in Vietnam did to my father (he was in the mental hospital my entire childhood-- PTSD) and I did not want that to happen to Dexter. Anyway, I handle it much better now, of course, but it was a really sad time for me when I first found out.

It was when my Grandmother died in 1993. I remember spending the night at my old boss/friends house. I heard a knock on his door at 0430 in the morning and I answered it. It was my father and I could tell by the look on his face that something was wrong. He told me what had happened and I cried like a baby. My Grandmother on my fathers side was the only grandparent I had ever known and we always connected very well. She was an awesome person and anyone who met her instantly fell in love with her. That is why it hit me so hard and was the saddest day of my life.
