Guardian Angels

On March 18th, 2006 two of our dear friends/brothers were killed in action while serving in Iraq. Dave served with both Rick and Dale in 2nd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. They are more than just friends...they are our family. We miss both of them very much and not a day goes by that we don't think about them and the sacrifice they made. We have already told Madi stories about Rick and Dale. There are times when Madi is playing and staring up at the ceiling and she will crack a few huge smiles at what appears to be nothing. We know that Madi is in fact smiling at her guardian angels and we can only imagine what kind of show they are putting on for her! We find so much comfort in knowing that Rick and Dale are looking down on us and protecting our sweet girl. Here are a few pics in honor of our heroes.

  1. Thanks for sharing Jen, I'm sure that they will protect and take great care of Madi! I feel the same way about my brother Brett. Our girls are so lucky to have such special guardian angels up above.
