Another Loss in the Marine Corps Family

Our friend and Marine Tony James recently lost his 13 month old daughter Lyla.  Although she suffered from a heart condition and underwent several surgeries in her short lifetime, she recently celebrated her 1st birthday.  Lyla passed away in her sleep on December 29th.


The viewing was on Thursday, January 3 and the funeral on Friday, January 4.  Once again, the Marine Corps family rallied around one of their own who was struggling through a terrible time.  Several Marines from across the state came to pay their respects, some driving 6 hours roundtrip.  Time and distance may separate these Marines, but in the hour of need, they are there for one another.  This bond is something that although I see demonstrated over and over, I cannot fully understand.  I can only respect these Marines immensely for it, and be proud to be a part of the Marine Corps family.


Please keep James and Jen in your prayers as they go through this difficult time.
