"I participated in a memorial day parade in Dacula, ga. We were given a poster with a picture of the fallen soldier along with date of passing. I was given channing Singletary sign to carry through the parade route that lasted 30 minutes. There was a huge crowd that attended the parade and somber tearful reactions from the crowd was emotionally overwhelming. I was honored to carry his sign. I wish his family all the best and God bless"

"Due to my job I visited Channing's office almost on a daily basis. He was always cheerful and helpful. I left Iraq in May 06 and I didn't know of his passing until much later. I wish I would have known him better and helped him in some way."

"Channing, You were my buddy for a longtime. We shared laughter and anger. I was your outlet and you were mine. We were a team, and together we got it done. Over the Years we lost touch due to the war. Although we were in seperate units, I never thought I would find you here. I am sorry I wasnt there for you this time buddy! I will miss you man, but I know our paths will cross again so until then buddy until then........"

I miss you Channing. I always thought that, someday, I would see you again. Someday, some far,far away day, I will."

I've thought about you over the years and always hoped you were doing well. It was only by looking you up online that I heard of the sacrifice you've made. I'm saddened to know that I'll never have the opportunity to tell you how much I wish things could have worked out for the best. You deserved happiness."

"We just recently heard of the loss of our friend Channing. It is with great sadness that we extend our condolences and prayers to his family and friends for such a tremendous loss.

We first met Channing in Athens many years ago and became goods friends, last seeing him at our home in Nashville just before he shipped-off for his first tour in Iraq. We stayed in touch via email and phone calls sharing stories and talking of a mutual love of cars. We think of him often and he is sorely missed. He was a great person and a great friend; a true asset to this country and this earth.

He will remain in our thoughts and prayers,
-Tom, Julia and Jessica Moore
Franklin, TN."

"Farewell my son, Channing,
You must journey far from here without me
We depart in sorrow,
For I shall not return for many a year
But you shall not be gone completely
For my thoughts and love remain with you.
One day the heavens will echo with our laughter,
With heavy heart I take my leave.
