Hey y'all, It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that Sgt. Charles Strong was KIA while deployed in Afghanistan. Details have yet to be released but he leaves behind his beautiful wife, Taylor, and their unborn child, a little girl. Please keep Taylor and their daughter in your prayers and thoughts. I cannot imagine what she is going through and I know these next days, months, and years will be extremely difficult. I am trying to raise money to buy Taylor the rocking chair she wanted. It would remind her of how loved her and her daughter are and give her a little peace. **If we reach the goal any extra money will go into Visa Gift cards or something in honor of Charles (whatever Taylor decides she wants to do once she has a moment to think). I appreciate all the support & I know Taylor does too. Things will be very crazy I am sure these next few weeks so please keep her in your prayers!

Hi all,

This is Taylor, I want to extend a sincere Thank you to every person who donated. I am truly grateful for all of your generosity. The past 8 months have been a complete whirlwind. Upon receiving the most horrible of news, I was still able to have hope, because of our daughter Sophie. She has truly been a blessing to me and our families. She is Charles' living legacy and we will always be grateful for that. Charles was an extraordinary man and all that knew him are forever touched by him, I'm certain. All of your help and support lets me to know he is still here with us watching over our family.

We can ask why this happened a million times, but we likely will not get an answer. I know I have asked that very question so many times. But I do know, Charles would want us all to keep living, laughing, and loving. We will continue to honor Charles here together until we see him again someday.

Thank you all SO very much.

With Love,

Taylor and Sophie Strong
