I have been following the death of Colton in the news and in the paper. I am not related to him nor do I know he or his family. I just want to let his family know that I am so saddened by his death. I am thankful for his bravery and for the bravery of others like him. I pray that time will help ease the pain of his loved ones. Again, thank you Colton for your service to our country and I am so sorry that you have made the most extreme sacrafice. Rest in peace.
