"Semper Fi Marine...I was there that day. It seems like it was last week, I think about that day in the village next to the Euphrates every day. I brought you to the helo with doc C. I'm proud to have served with you."
Tim Dekryger of tjdekryger@hotmail.com

"Its been 13 years since I met that ornery Marine that we all just called Seamus. Even the officers called him that. He was a good honest person who told you how it was regardless of the outcome and our grief is the families grief. Guard those streets Marine. MSPF will need an escort when we all make it to the other side.

Every day i think what life would be like if you were still here. When Christmas comes around i always think you are going to walk through the front door and say,"Im home!" I love you and miss you so much."
Taylor of Andover

"To the Davey Family,

Seamus was what many in the infantry call a motivator. I saw that in him from the first time I sat down and talked to him about the Marine Corps. As his recruiter I was able to meet the entire family and my deepest condolences go out to you all. I know that he made you all proud and I know that I am honored that a young Marine of his caliber was able to serve in the Marine Corps and do it so well. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Davey family and the city of Lowville."
GySgt Jason Selby of 1st Battlion 5th Marines Camp Pendleton Ca, wofw98@aol.com

"Seabass, I am going to miss you very much. I will remember when you, me, and foster child hung out and all the good times we had through school. I have a lot of memories of us at the prom and the special trips you would make to come and see me when you came home from Iraq. You will always be my best friend. I want your family to know that I am thinking of them and that you were a great person, friend, and that I will miss you very much. I hope that one day we will be able to see each other again.
Love you!!"
Renee (Bellinger) Rose of Lowville, NY

"It should not have been that fateful day,
The day that God had called you away.

It had been awhile since we’d last met,
Then I heard the news with deep regret.

So many loved you sincerely,
And now they miss you oh so dearly.

We never were the best of friends,
But I never dreamed this is how it’d end.

I think about what you put on the line,
Couldn’t have done it with this life of mine.

Wherever you are now, I wish you Godspeed,
You turned out to be one damn fine man indeed.

Should I make it one day to heaven’s scenes,
I’ll try to thank you, one of our finest Marines.

Seamus,
I’m not sure if this is one poem, or seven individual ones,
but it’s a sum of my thoughts and feelings. Your family loves you,
and I respect you. (and yes I question my masculinity for putting my
thoughts into a/some poem(s). Godspeed to you and your other fallen
brothers wherever you are now."
Brian of Rochester, NY

"Wow I'm finding out a little bit late but this is a shock. I served with Davey in Fox 2/5 when I was a boot, during my first pump to Okie. I thought he EAS'd I didnt know he went back in.....

"Seamus. Brother. I remember the last time I saw you in 29 palms during a CAX so many years ago. You still had that grin on your face even though you had to leave 1/4 and your friends you knew what made you happy and you made that sacrifice. I want your family to know how much you used to talk about them while we were in Pendleton. You loved your family so much and I want them to know. I will miss you buddy. I will think of you often, you will not be forgotten. Some day if I'm lucky I will see you again.
Love, Mitch

"I will never forget the lessons you taught me. Your selfless dedication to your peers and country is but one of the characteristics that separate you from the rest.
Know that you are respected, esteemed, and missed by those of us who knew you well. Know that you have made a lasting impression on even those who barely knew you.
The memory of you remains in our hearts forever.
Go in peace, then, My Brother, that I will carry on the mission and honor your name."

"To the family of Seamus -
remembering you in your grief.
And honoring our HERO,
Seamus M Davey

Memories are golden
Well, maybe that is true
We never wanted memories
We only wanted you.
A million times we needed you
A million times we cried
If love alone could have saved you
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still
In our hearts you hold a place
No one can ever fill.

"To the Davey family: My thoughts and prayers are with you. Having a Marine as a family member who was involved in the initial invasion to Baghdad, I know the pride and dedication that Seamus had. All Marines share that pride. He is a hero that we can and should look to with honor and respect. I lived in Lowville and was in the graduating class of 1991 and I know how this has to have impacted our small hometown. Lean on those there to support you and allow their love to help you through such a hard time in your lives. I am very sorry for your loss."
Steve Gingerich of Smithfield, Va/USA

"Seamus, I rejoice in the knowledge that you are watching out for us. I rejoice in the faith that as believers we shall share eternity together. I mourn the loss of your love,smiles, your laughter, and kindness which you shared so freely with us...so my mourning is in selfishness. I miss you. My daughters and husband miss you. I know your whole family misses you. Thank you for being a true hero. A person we can securely look up to and try to emulate. To Seamus...who did what he believed in and selflessly gave himself for the lives and safety of others. The Vazquez family will never forget you sweet cousin."
Erin Vazquez of Oak Ridge, NC/USA

"To the family and friends of Cpl. Davey:
"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends".
It is no small thing that our nation's soldiers willingly risk their lives on a daily basis for a greater good.
We are humbled and grateful for Seamus' dedication to duty, and greatly saddened for your loss.
May God be your comfort at this time."
The Halet Family of Monrovia, CA

"Seamus,
I did not know you well, but you were my wife's best friend. I only talked with you a handful of times and today the pain of losing you is the only emotion that fills my heart. It hurts, Seamus. I know that you were intelligent and brave, and true to what you believed in- your friends, your family, and your country. I am proud to have met you. A REAL AMERICAN HERO. The first time that you and I ever had a conversation was just after 9/11. It affected you, PERSONALLY. The whole time that I knew you, you were detemined to go to Iraq. You went to Iraq as a civilian first, and then back again after you knew how bad it was. I have never in my life met, or had the HONOR of knowing, a bigger American patriot. Seamus M. Davey, Rest In Peace, you truly are a hero, in every sense of the word. You will not be forgotten, EVER. You will live on because we will always think of you. When times are the hardest is when you will help us the most, because we will ask ourselves "What would Seamus do?" It seems to me that by following your lead we can not do wrong because you believed in and fought for what you thought was right. That is all that we can ask. Hannah and I are about to have our third son now, and I can only hope that my son's possess a fraction of your character. I am proud to have known you, Seamus. The Mushtare family mourns you. Lowville loves you. Semper Fi, Cpl. Seamus Davey, we love, honor and miss you forever.
Scott,Hannah,Sydnie,Noah,Brody & Baby Mushtare."
