Know that a father and daughter in New York celebrate Christmas with heartfelt thanks and tremendous regard for your brave father, husband, brother, son. I was moved by the story of the mess hall bombing in today's NY Times. Today's newspaper is filled with reminders of the sacrifices made by families such as yours. And so families such as mine are deeply touched. I can only wish you endurance and strength to carry on and know that Sgt. Poulin's sacrifice is not lost on my family. God bless your fallen hero."
