"When my son US Marine SGT.Christian B. Williams died. My whole body was numb.I know I remember I went through different routines of life, but it was so hard to fully accept that Christian was gone and will stop kissing to greet me saying with a sweet smile " Hi Mama". To this day I still don' t know if I can actually say I have reached a state of accepting that he is gone and that I won't ever hear him laugh again. Or maybe, he doesn't ever truly need to become surely gone.I miss my son all the time, even though in my head I know he will not be here to share his dreams with us, to share his stories, to share his frustrations, to share if his in love, to enjoy the company of his adult siblings, enjoy the playfull sounds of his little nephews and niece,.to enjoy visiting cousins, aunts, uncles and good friends.. I know I am getting used to the pain, but sometimes I just learn to deal around it. It' s kinda discovering there was a hole in the ground and I keep forgetting it is there and I keep falling in.I believe tears shed for a lost son is not a sign of a weakness but a sign of a pure heart. I will never stop crying because I will never ever stop loving my son. All I can do is love him and love the world. Emulate him by living with daring and spirit and joy. I have to live with this. I can heal but will never be the same. I believe there is a real value by being sad, by being still, by just sitting here or just by standing there. I love you son, your family and friends loves you and misses you. God help us all and give us strength when we feel the void in our hearts.Rest my child, when my time comes I will be so happy to join you."

What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal."In behalf of the Williams family, we want to say thank you for your kindness in building this website for the Fallen Heroes Memorial. This really help me a lot. I feel like when I am writing I am actually talking to my KIA son USMC SGT. Christian B Williams. I do appreciate your talent, your time and effort, caring for the Fallen Heroes'and their families. God Bless you"

"It is almost nine years now son, USMC SGT Christian B Williams. My heart is still weeping. Whenever I am on my solo time, I cannot stop thinking about you and missing you...There is no greater sorrow and grief than that of a mother for her children! The times when my child is sick or suffering, I suffer . The times when my kid is hurt, I hurt. When my child is wronged by people in the world, I feel their injustice . When my child go stray and life is shipwrecked on the rocks of sin, I grieve and weeps . And when my child die an untimely death, I grieve with bitter weeping that will not be comforted. Almost nine years when I lost you my child, yet my heart weeps when I am all alone.I miss you son, I love you. I wish I can sit down with you one more time just to let you know that you are so important in my life. But if GoD allows me to have this moment of missing your presence, it is a blessing and I thank my God for that.We love you as your family misses you .Rest in peace my love and Semper Fi"

It's been five years today since you left but not a day has passed that you haven't been heavy on my mind. I think about those good times we had in Oki, all of the motorcycle stunt videos we used to watch, and it makes me smile. It really sux that you were taken away and I still can't come to terms with it, don't think I ever will honestly. I miss you amigo, ever so much, but I know I will see you again one dayI have no doubt about that."

"I didn't personally know anyone who was killed fighting to defend our country. But I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry at times. I understand, in theory only, that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the grieving families and friends pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. All my love and respect. ogersteiner@yahoo.com
A hundred times a day, I remind myself that my inner and outer life depends on the labors of other men, living and dead, and I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am receiving. - Albert Einstein"

""I as a member of the United States Marine Corps is deeply saddened to see a fellow brother KIA,May the hand of jesus Christ help u through the lost of ur love one.

For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.

Romans 13:3-4."
Efrain Chavez Sgt United States Marine Corps of (camp pendleton), San Diego,CA
