Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

I'll make arrangements with a florist to have a bouquet sent to the funeral home on our behalf but like Ryan suggested, I'll wait a couple of days out of respect for his family.

Hopefully those psychos from Westboro Baptist Church and that honorless asshole Fred Phelps dont decide to show up to make things worse.

Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

This is unbelieveable. He was so excited about joining and getting involved.

My first contact with Seth was thru PM's with him asking about membership information, then he wanted to get involved with a clean-up of a popular off roading area in the 'Springs.

He will be missed eventhough not many of us got to meet him face-to-face.

Justin, Jeff and I will definitely be looking to do whatever we can for Seth's family on behalf of the Colorado Chapter.

If that Phelps crew makes the slightest hint of organizing a protest, I will be there to do what I can to make their effort as difficult as possible.

Seth, thank you for your patriotism, enthusiasm and bravery for our Country.

If they are going to show up, let me know, I'll come on over from California with a few friends if need be....those poeple are not welcomed and not liked. We can just circles the XJ's around and block them out of sight.

Seriously, call me....

He will be missed

Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

I would definately do some leg work and find out who the Casualty Assistance Officer is, the military rep coordinating his case with his family. That way the contact can remain professional and he/she can coordinate it so nothing is inappropriate or untimely.
Having to go to a friend's house and inform the wife/mother/family is extremely difficult and touch and go for several days. Anything that reminds them of Seth may trigger some really bad reactions.

Thoughts and prayers to his family

Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

I can't say anything that hasn't already been said. We disagreed on a thread, but respectfully. His words meant more because he was putting his money where his mouth was. I've been keeping track of him when he shipped off and wished him well. It was good to see his update recently with his pics. But now, the reality of war...

I would like to help in some way. I have a bad habit of bad timing though. If does anything official count me in. I would be happy to give labor, money, or presence. Keep us updated, and maybe we can get a list going. His family might not have a clue who we are, but I'm sure they knew he loved his XJ. Maybe an official letter with names of those that show support and flowers sent to the funeral??? It's the right thing to do something. God Bless our troops, and Seth's family.

I think a contingent of XJs at the funeral might be well received. This is more than a stupid internet board, this is a club.

Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!
