Over this past month I've found myself at a loss for words, and emotions. I've found myself in dark places, that I'd never imagine myself being in.
I've found myself surrounded by family and friends who loved Weston more than anything. I've felt pain and suffering unlike anything I've felt before.
I've seen a town in South Georgia come together for a family at the drop of a dime. And show them love and support that I've never seen before.
I saw my brother being carried of a plane from Iraq.
I saw the Georgia State Patrol with their hundred plus Troopers, and surrounding county police departments, escort my brother and his family to his home town.
I've found myself in a church, with hundreds of friends, family, and people from all over the state come and pay their respects to the family.
I found myself in a school where we held Weston's memorial to 900 plus people. I saw Mavis Moore, and Jimmy Web share stories that brought tears to everyone's eyes, and in the same instance bring smiles to their faces, sharing stories of how goofy Weston really was.
I escorted my brother on a 12 hour ride from Bluffton GA, to Arlington National Cemetery.
I found myself in a chapel at Arlington National Cemetery, filled with family, friends and uniformed personnel of all ranks.
I witnessed a family devastated by the loss of a loved one, but also honored by the legacy he had left with us in such a short time.
I followed behind a Caisson carrying Weston Cecil Lee to his final resting place.
I witnessed the Old Guard present a perfectly folded American flag to his mother.
I witnessed grown men in uniform kneeling on the ground, saying goodbye to a friend and fellow soldier with not a dry eye amongst us, all the time knowing the next service could be our own.
I have been humbled by the amount of support and love this country has shown Weston over this past month. I now have all the Lee family to call my own. I now have brothers in North Georgia that call me their own. I now have a family that extends across this country. And to Savannah, I will always love you, forever and always. Jake, Cody, Marcus, and Will, I love you guys from the bottom of my heart.
