    Unhappy i had a tragic loss

    i have had a tragic loss in my life. my only son PFC Douglas Cordo had died in Afghan on august 19th 2011 he was only 20 years old.. he was a American hero who died for our country. I'm still lost for words. I'm so empty inside that i cant feel anything.. how do you every get over this. He was in US Army. i couldn't be any prouder of my son. He was funny kid. always made everyone laugh. I'm not sure how to get threw this. but I'm trying. its like my heart has been ripped out of my body and it will never come back. a part of me has died with him.. He was my whole life. my everything. he was my son.. your American soldier who was fighting to keep us safe. i ask of all of you to pray for my son and all the soldier who are still over there trying to keep us safe..

    I am so sorry for your loss. I agree. He was/is a hero and gave the ultimate price fighting for us.

    I am so very sorry for your loss-He truly is an Amereican hero!
    Even now at the 10 yr anniversary of 9-11 so many are oblivious to the hard work and sacrafices of our young men and women in the military.My son is in the marines so I understand the sleepless nights worring about a child deployed so far away.But I can only imagine what you must be going through,my heart goes out to you.

    You and your son Douglas will be in our prayers.
    Remember you are not alone-there are parent support groups for military families.

    Thank you for your service and sacrafice- the world is a better place because of it!

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    Tracy,

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost a lifelong friend in Iraq back in 2007. He was Army too.

    But to lose your own son. I cannot imagine what you and your family are going through right now.

    I saw the picture of your son Douglas. The young man has the look of a true professional, and an outstanding soldier.

    I'm sorry Tracy.

    Rob

    You are in my thoughts and prayers. There is no relating to such a loss and I can't begin to imagine what you're going through.

    There are no words to console a broken heart. I just know, the pain gradually lessens....but you will always grieve. Grieving is an extension of of our love for them. For me, realizing this, it has helped me to embrace, understand the pain I have. Uplifting you, your family, our soldiers in prayer.

    Tight hugs,
