    Most sincerest thoughts and prayers to the family of this American Hero. God Speed his soul into Heaven. It is with an especially heavy heart I am reading and writing this on the 3rd anniversary of the death of my cousin and best friend, also killed in Afghanistan, LCpl Ralph J. Fabbri.
    Thank you for his service and ultimate sacrifice. God bless you and may you remain strong and steadfast during this tragic time.
