    I condolence to Ministry of Defence, buddies and loved ones of the Lance Corporal Peter Eustace, who has been killed in Helmand province.
    I am sure He is on the reigns of The Father and now pray for us.
    It is very hard support such notices and have always this spectrum of terror war.
    Buddies, I understand that mine are only words, but, be sure, I am with us as You are on my heart.
    Be resilient, as more as possible. Be sure You are not alone.
