Nonchalant Compilation of 20 Remarkable Images
Emma Weaver was shattered and devastated when she heard that her husband, US Army 1st Lt. Todd Weaver had been killed by an IED during his second tour in Afghanistan in 2010. The martyr had left a beautiful 9-month-old daughter Kylie.
The soldier’s widow, Emma was grieving over the death of her love and that she was very much sad that her daughter would never know who her daddy was and how much he loved her.
Todd’s body was flown to the US where he was given a hero’s funeral in Arlington National Cemetery. This one is a kind of funeral every soldier deserves for their sacrifices. Emma was very much sad as she thought that many things were left unsaid and that both could not express their love for each other for the last time
Emma was checking her husband’s computer just two days after his funeral when she found something that surprised her. There were two-word documents, one of which was named “Dear Emma” and the other “Dear Kylie”. This incredible discovery left her speechless.
The word document had a letter each for Emma and Kylie written by Todd before he left for Afghanistan. Both the letters had words that express how much the soldier loved his family and he had written the letter in case something happened to him while he was there.
In the letter for Emma, Todd expressed how much thankful he was because he was married to a perfect wife. He also mentioned about his 9 months old daughter and asked Emma to tell Kylie how much he loved her.
In the letter for Kylie, Lt Weaver called her his ‘sweetie’ and a true ‘gift from God’. He also expressed how he grieved over the fact that he wouldn’t be able to see her grow. He asked her to be around mommy and that to help her always. He also reminded her to say prayers at night. Emma has superimposed the letters into pictures. We still hope for Emma’s happiness and a bright future for Kylie.
