"I am very sorry to hear about your child’s death through the website Fallen Heroes of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. We would like to invite you to join us at noon on this Saturday, May 17 at the Homewood Cemetery located in Squirrel Hill (1599 S. Dallas Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15217 – phone for directions 412.421.1822) to honor the fifth anniversary of the death of Gary G's (former WEDO disc jockey) daughter, Cathy, who died in a fire. Upon Cathy's death, Gary started Cathy G Charities to carry on her work with the local homeless (on streets and in shelters), Veterans Administration, anyone who has a need etc. I do pro-bono work as the charities Public Relations Representative.

Since Gary is a disabled veteran, he especially wanted to invite the relative/friends of fallen heroes to our memorial. We have invited others who lost their sons and daughters and Gary will be stocking the beautiful cemetery pond with 900 goldfish and releasing doves after reading the names of the sons and daughters who have passed on.

Thank you for your interest. You can reach me immediately by phone at 412.673.9443 or Gary at 412.583.8560 or 412.373.5687. Please let us know if you can attend and the name of your loved one. Also please inform us if you cannot attend, but want your son or daughter’s name mentioned at our ceremony."

"To the family, my deepest sympathies. The best part of being a Marine, is knowing that no matter what, you are my brother. The worst part of being a Marine, is being assigned to your funeral detail, knowing that I will never meet another Marine, just like you. You will always be remembered, in our thoughts and in our prayers. Blessed those who look on you for support and faith, keep our brothers and sisters safe out there."

We know the pain of losing our child to this war. If anyone feels the need to talk we are available at DianeSantoriell@hotmail.com. We wish we could say that the pain goes away. It does not. But lean on your friends and hold onto your faith. Tell people when you are having a bad “Stephen Day,” and they will understand.
