    One of my very good friends fighting in Afganistan died last week.

    He was an amazing man, everything and more than a person should be, and this world was a better place for having him in it.

    He will be sorely missed. For those of you who pray please say a prayer for him, for his family and his friends and all of our boys away fighting in the war.

    Heaven was missing an angel

    So sorry to hear that terrible news!! He'll be remembered as a true hero, but it's so difficult to get your head around something like that- a million times more difficult when it's someone so close to your heart! As others have said, it brings it home that life is here to be lived and we should all forget stressing over the small stuff! I know I'm one of the worst for letting the trivial things take over my thoughts! God bless him XXXXX

    Thank you for all your kind words, it really means a lot to me. It makes it so sereal seeing his face all over the news, but it comforts me to know he will be remembered and respected by so many people.

    Im driving to Wootton Basset tomorrow to bring him home, i think only then will it sink in.

    So very sorry for your loss :( It's something we've had to worry about a lot over the last couple of years as my sister's friend has done two tours in Afghanistan.
    My thoughts are with you and his family.x
