Since I can't figure out how to update my original thread about the helicopter crash, I'll start another.
Today, Navy divers recovered my son Sean (ETC2NA) from the bottom of the Atlantic. I was on the pier when they brought his flag-drapped body back to land for the final time. I can not tell you the emotions I felt and am feeling, but I want to say a sincere Thank You to all for your prayers. He was too good to die at 39 and he was my hero. A father could not be more proud.
Thank you again and please keep our family in your prayers. In addition to his wife, he left behind 3 teenage sons and a 7 year old daughter.

I am so very sorry for your loss. You are, and always will be your sons hero as well, and you shall meet again someday. He's moved on to another place, full of love and peace. May he watch over you and your loved ones for years to come. RIP Sean, you will be missed.
SORRY TO HEAR THIS MULEY, HE IS NOW IN A BETTER PLACE LOOKING OVER YOU AND THE FAMILY. MY CONDOLENCES GO OUT TO YOU AND THE FAMILY. HE WILL ALWAYS BE OUR HERO.
I'm sitting here with blurry vision after having read your statement on Foxnews. I came here specifically to find this thread. My heart breaks for you because I have known for a long time how close you and Sean are. Your four generation hunts are a source of jealousy for me. I will continue to pray for you and your family. I wish I had deeply prophetic words to soothe your soul right now, but I'll turn that over to God and ask him to do that.
If I could say anything at all, I would encourage you not to focus on your loss, but rather on Sean's gain. As my grandfather asked his pastor just days before he died "Why are Christian funerals so sad if we believe what we say we believe?" Sean has reached our ultimate goal and he did so with class and honor. I feel sure God welcomed him with a true "Well done my good and faithful servant."
There are two types of countries in the world today.
Those that use the metric system and those that have been to the moon.
So sorry for your loss. Prayers for you and your family.

Godspeed Sean, blue skies.
Think me not unkind and rude,
That I walk alone through grove and glen.
I go to seek the God of the wood,
And fetch His word to men.
I'm so sorry for your loss, Muley.
So sorry for your loss.
So sorry for your loss.
I'm sorry, prayers for you and your family.

Very sorry Muley.
I can add nothing more than that I hope you and your family fight through this pain as best you can.
Any day in the outdoors is a damn good day.
So sorry to hear that Muley. My sympathy to you and your entire family.
So very sorry for your loss
Keep your head up my friend. You now have another angle watching over you. Try not to think or the hard times but focuses on the happy times and the feelings of pride and joy. Thank you for a wonderful man. You have given us all a hero to look up to and a man to be thankful for. Because of him and many others like him, We live here in the greatest country ever. Thank you Sean for all you have done and now have gave. RIP and keep a eye out over your loved ones till you one day meet again.
God Bless America and us all.....
Sorry for your loss....godspeed to one of Americas heroes.
Very sad, prayer on the way for you and your family.

We aim to please. You aim too,please.
No one is worthless. They can always be used as a bad example.
People who think they know it all, annoy the heck out of those of us that do.
I am so sorry. You have my prayers.
I am at a loss for words. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, your family and Sean's family
I am so sorry for your loss . I cant imagine the grief you are feeling. We will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.
Sorry for your loss brother.
Sorry to hear that.
I don't often talk about my public land spots but when I do I lie.
My condolences to you and the family. My prayers are all involved.
