I have ever been through..

My daddy was killed in a firefight in Afghanistan a few days ago..
Knowing the feeling that my daddy.. will never come back home, or see me grow up and graduate high school.. or even get married..
The Saturday I found out, my mama and two men picked us up and were so sweet, they traveled all the way from Tucson, AZ, to Washington DC.. They didn't have to.
They were so comforting and sweet.. One, balder and young, I knew by his name, Chris (which I later nicknamed him, 'Angel').
The other, who for a long while I nicknamed "Pretty Eyes" because I didn't know his name. He looked like Bradley Cooper [The Hangover].
Me and Pretty Eyes connected very deeply, he let me listen to his iPhone's music library, where he showed me a new (possibly favorite) band, and is going to send me all of their albums.. <3
We share an email and cell number, if we ever want to chat.. <3

We flew to DC from Delaware.. I had the opportunity to see them take my daddy's casket off of the plane, but I couldn't do it, so I stayed in the hotel room and cried back to sleep..

I got to visit the CIA museum, and was commissioned by some high ranked fellows for art for their walls..
We said emotional goodbyes to Pretty Eyes (who I now know as Brian) and Angel, and departed back home.

I saw Heaven itself in the clouds.. I'll post the photos later..

And when I got to the airport..
The most wonderful girl was waiting there for me..
I'd never seen her cry, or even knew she could.. but she hugged me so tight.. and never let go..
It lasted an eternity, and I wished it lasted longer than that..
Thank you, prove-youre-alive.. <3

I'm home now.. I've missed AIMS (big tests in school..) and probably a lot of homework.. but I'll worry about that later..
There's so much stress.. We don't know if we're keeping our house (hopefully the special benefits and funding people help us..), how we will buy food..
But we have friends who will be bringing us food daily, out of their own free time and money..
I cannot begin to thank everyone for their love and condolences.. It means so much..

I love you all.. May my daddy rest in piece..

I'm so sorry for your loss.. I'm sure since your dad was a troop, the goverment will provide money for your family through the time he served in Afghan. You might find some info here. [link] I'd totally make you some Mac and cheese, though I think you'd get rather sick of eating it as often as I do. >.< I hope things start to get better for you and your family.

I'm really sorry to hear about that, I know you you feel completely know how I lost my mom (no the same way you lost your dad) and it hurts to know that things will never be the same and there are things you can't do because if this. You never get over it and in the first few months it will be hard to talk about and you will think of them constantly; everything you do.
But you will get through it since I know you are strong as well as I know your family is. If you ever need to talk im here o v o

I'm very sorry to hear about your father :c
He was a brave, noble man. He fought for our country.
And I'm sure he would've been very proud of you.
I wish best for you and your family. :hug:
