I do not know what to say except I am sorry. Your story was very touching. I think we often take for granted what is given to us, and this just reminded me what we have can be taken away in an instant, without any notice. With loss comes immense sadness, yet I feel like when someone is taken from this world, they will forever be watching over us. Gunner is in heaven smiling down at you. I'm glad you could share this. I bet it was extremely hard. I'm sorry.



Rest In Peace sweet little Gunner.

I am so sorry for your loss. That was very courageous writing that all out. I cried the whole time reading it.

Sweety, This was the most beautiful well written story I have ever read. You made a completely unselfish decision. I cried and cried, you a REAL mother! You made sure he wouldn't suffer any longer. I truly admire you, I know it must be hard but you have pulled through and been stronger than i think I could've been.
He will always be known as the Tiniest Marine around, OORAH!



May Gunner rest in peace Forever!

Wow, Thank you for sharing that intense time with us through your words. You are an incredibly strong woman, and more mature than even you may think. I read what you wrote when LittleFoot was in the hospital about sending Gunner to look over him....I thought that was beautiful.

That was beautiful. After I looked at his pictures I cried my eyes out, now after reading this it makes me hurt for you even more. He will always be a little Marine.

Oh my god Ashley. You have told me the story, the entire story once before. I still cried like a baby. I love both you and Gunner to bits and I know he is up there with Bree and they are playing. Those Marine brats have to stay together. This was beautiful.
