Hey I am Andy I became apart of the family right after your tragedy. I knew Mindy and Carmen and felt like I had known you my whole life.

I pray everyday and thank god for soldiers like you who gave it all for our freedom. I just wanted to say thanks and tell you that we will never forget you and your family and I will get to meet you in heaven and then we can get to know each other. Love always your fellow soldier Andy Burk. If you read this Mindy I hope everyone is doing well"
