At a loss for words

At 8pm EST tonight I found out that my Uncle, Captain Robert M. Secher, was killed in Iraq.

Without a doubt, he was the finest man I have ever known.

He was strong and brave, but he was also honorable, kind and decent.

I can only say that I will miss him more than I can properly express in words at this time.

I don't think I have ever been as shocked and angry as I am right now.

I really don't want to say more than this.

For you personally - my sincere condolences; the loss of a family member in any circumstances is a difficult cross to bear.
To the world at large - not all of us (I'm Australian) believe that we had a right to interfer in a country's strife when it was obvious we really didn't know how to truly help the people of that nation to achieve a peaceful solution.

To the family, words are not enough to express how sorry I am for your loss. I have prayed to God to provide you the strength and courage you need in order to handle this difficult moment successfully. We send our prayers and thoughts. She will truly be missed by so many.
