"To the family of Ernest W. Dallas Jr. - In July of 2007 my church, St. Monica Catholic Church in Dallas, had a special service for Fallen Soldiers. Each congregant was asked to select a slip of paper with a Fallen Soldier's name and to pray for that soldier and their family. I just want you to know that I've prayed for Earnest and for your family everyday since I selected that slip almost 7 years ago. I thank you for the sacrifice that Ernest and your family made almost 10 years ago and want you to know that I am grateful for his service and honored to continue to pray for him all these years later."

"WE MET ERNEST IN COLORADO SPRINGS BUT TO US HE WAS KNOWN AS DALLAS. THE TIME HE WAS HERE HE WAS THERE FOR US WHEN WE NEEDED SOMEONE. HE WAS ONE OF OUR CLOSE FRIENDS. HE MADE US LAUGH EVERY MINUTE WE WERE WITH HIM. HE BROUGHT OUR FROWNS TO SMILES AND FULFILLED THE DAY WITH HAPPINESS. HE WAS PRECIOUS TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF US IN EVERYWAY. IF IT WASN`T FOR HIS MOTHER AND FATHER WHO BROUGHT HIM IN TO THIS WORLD WE WOULD HAVE NEVER MET SUCH A WONDERFUL PERSON LIKE DALLAS. WE JUST WANTED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW DALLAS WAS A BIG PART OF OUR LIVES AND HE WILL BE MISSED VERY MUCH. BUT NOW WE KNOW HES AT PEACE WITH GOD. MAY GOD BLESS THE FAMILY AND WE GIVE ALL OUR LOVE TO YOU. AND MAY GOD BLESS DALLAS AND KEEP HIM SAFE UP THERE."
