"It is hard to believe that it will be 5 years in another month. Seams like just yesterday we were back in school together. Seams like yesterday that we were looken over the pond together or just hanging out. Even after school you seamed to always be around even when you were crashing in my spare room. I just miss having you around period. I know in my heart this was the way you wanted to go even if it was way to early, but hey i still miss ya. I still love ya."

"ROBERT,I REMEMBER HEARING THE BAD NEWS WHILE I WAS WORKING AT THE "7" DAY STORE, THE PLACE YOU ALWAYS CAME TO SEE ME AT .I WAS SO HORRIFIED, IT WAS SO UNREAL TO ME,I HAD TO TAKE A BREAK AND CRY.I REMEMBER THE NIGHT, LIKE A FEW DAYS BEFORE YOU LEFT FOR IRAQ, YOU WERE NERVOUS WHEN YOU CAME THROUGH MY LINE AND MY MANAGER ASKED WHAT WAS WRONG AND YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO KNOW IF I WOULD GO ON A DATE WITH YOU BEFORE YOU LEFT FOR IRAQ. I GLADLY SAID YES, WE WENT OUT THE NEXT DAY,ROBERT AND I WENT TO LOGANS AND HE TALKED ABOUT HOW HIS LAST NAME WAS LIKE THE MOVIE OF THE GUY WITH THE RATS.HE WAS VERY FUNNY. HE TOLD ME HOW FORTUNATE HE WAS TO BE OUT WITH ME, HE ADMIRED ME AND TREATED WITH SUCH RESPECT.I WENT TO PICK HIM UP, HE DIDN'T HAVE A CAR,HE WAS SO CLOSE TO LEAVING FOR IRAQ. HE TALKED ABOUT HIS FAMILY AND HOW MUCH HE LOVED THEM,ESPECIALLY HIS MOM. HE DID TELL ME HE MADE SOME BAD CHOICES IN LIFE BUT HE WAS TRYING TO GET HIS SELF TOGETHER. HE WANTED AND TALKED ABOUT GOING TO IRAQ, HE WAS SO READY TO GO, HE WAS EXCITED, I DIDN'T THINK FOR A MOMENT HE WOULD BE ONE OF THE FALLEN SOLDIERS.IT STILL HURTS BECAUSE I WAS ONE OF THE LAST PEOPLE TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM BEFORE HE LEFT, I WAS HIS LAST DATE,HIS LAST CRUSH, HE HAD SOMEWHAT A CRUSH ON ME,HE CAME TO SEE ME AT WORK EVERYDAY UNTIL HE LEFT,HE CAME BY THE DAY HE LEFT TO SAY GOODBYE AND I GAVE HIM A BIG HUG, HE WAS SO SWEET AND I'M SO GLAD I GOT AN OPPURTUNITY TO ENCOUNTER SUCH A GREAT PERSON. ROBERT I NEVER GOT THAT UNIQUE ROSE YOU WAS GOING TO GET FOR ME WHEN YOU CAME BACK, BUT I KNOW IT WOULD'VE BEEN BEAUTIFUL,JUST LIKE THE PERSON YOU WERE. SO MISSED...GOD BLESS THE GUY FAMILY."

"Hi. I know I don't know you, and never met you. I'll say this anyways. I need your forgiveness. I'm afraid I've hurt your shady lady, and I don't think I'll ever be able to repair the damage done. I'm truly sorry for what I've done; I know she thought of you as her dad. Wherever you are, I'm sorry.

Sincerely,
The Rev. Abel"

"Guy,
Is the 2 year really coming up? How has time gone so fast? I cannot tell you how much I miss you and how much I think of you. You were such an amazing person and one hell of a Marine. You're on my mind every day.
Tomorrow I'll go to Arlington and see your name, like I have done every year. I never get used to seeing you there. It hurts so deep knowing everyone lost you so soon. I pray for you. Pray that you are still with us in a way that only you know how.
You were a friend, an inspiration and a genuine person. I miss you so much, you'll always have a place in my heart."

Words cannot express just what goes through my head these days. I still can't accept that you're gone. But tomorrow will be one year and I just can't wrap my mind around it.
You always pushed me so hard, you always made sure I was giving my all to the Corps because neither you nor the Corps would accept nothing less.
You were an amazing person and I miss you every day."

I remember our little song to each other " I love you I love you I love you I love you" I will miss you forever and my wedding dress is still here. I have waited for you all of my life. You have saved me and shown me that love is still alive. I know that we will meet again and it will be happiness like it was when we were together. You are my hero you are my forever. You will be my husband forever. I still have your tag on that you gave me, and I have it as a tatoo on my leg. I will never forget any part of you. I miss your kiss and your hugs and the way you would look into my eyes and say hiiiii.You are my wonderful husband as I would say and I am your " Amazing wife" as you would say. I could write forever to you as I did when you were in Iraq, but I know where you are now that words are heard often and you answer me back still. I love you Forever ( never said good bye honey we are just on a pause ).That was our little thing."

"I went to SOI training with Guy, and he was my best friend there. He was a big guy with a big heart. I will never forget him. I remember talking with him the last time I saw him. We got different unit assignments, and I was really upset. He got 3/8, and I got 3/3. I didn't want to go to Hawaii, because I was told there was no action in that unit. I remember that Guy had practically begged our 1st Sergeant for assignment to 3/8. I was so jealous of him. (And he never did return that gameboy game I lent him.) I would give my own life for his if I could. If there is anyone who doubts that he was an honorable man, doubt not. Semper Fi."
PFC William W. Brubaker of Cocoa, Fl

"My dearest son,
I miss you so much. I want to hold you,
I want to see your smile and hear your
voice. I keep thinking that I will wake
up in the morning and find that this has
all been a horrible, horrible dream. I
think someone has made a terrible mis-
take. I have to believe it is. I love you so much and I will never let you go.
I can't! I'm so sorry I couldn't be there for you when you needed me most.
I loved you when you were born, I love you now and I will always love you.
With all my love,
Mom"
Ann R. Guy of Willards, Md. USA
