On January 27, 2011 Eric Merkley was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. An aggressive cancer that we hope and the doctors to this point seem confident that is contained to one spot on his leg. Prognosis is good. Treatments and recovery will be long and painful.

A soldiers return home

I have never witnessed a military dignified transfer before, but it will be safe to say that it has changed my life and view on things.  As we go on with our dailies lives we forget that there is a war going on and men and women are targeted to be killed.  Some escape death, but come home seriously injured where their lives have been changed forever and we still go on with our lives.  I have always appreciated their service, but my appreciation has changed to a more deeper and humbling respect for the sacrifices that have been made in our behalf, so we may go to dinner with our friends and family and catch a movie to escape reality.  Cody Towse was worried that his sacrifices would go unnoticed.  We proved to him yesterday that we do care and we honor him.  We grieve with his family and will miss him deeply.  Thank you Cody. And Thank you to all the many other service men and women who are fighting for not only our freedoms, but also of those around the world who have and are suffering at the hands of evil.
