You must be so proud of your handsome son. He is an absolute hero.
yep very proud thanks
Congratulations to Jeff for being honored as a hero. He's a hero for trying to save another and you are one for raising one, too!
How wonderfully brave and handsome is Carolyn. Know how proud you and your hubby are of him. Just goes to show he was raised well by loving parents/Lillian
ahhhhhhhhhh we did try our best with God's help***I give him the credit thanks
Congratulations to you very very brave son, Carolyn! You have to be so very proud of him!!! These are wonderful pictures - a very handsome son!!! Hugs, Laura
Thanks he looks like his Daddy lol
Carolyn, This is just incredible! I bet you are proud enough to bust your buttons! Please give Jeff my thank you. Not because of his award, but for the caring, marvelous person he is: for his character. When our Ben was choking the EMTs came to save him, but it was not to be. God had plans to take our son to be with him in Heaven. I know the person, Also named Ben. who tried so hard to save him really had a hard time, feeling like he failed in some way. What he didn't realize, and I'm sure Jeff feels this too, that he just didn't do enough. But, the truth is, Ben did everything any other human could possibly do. it wasn't his fault that our Ben died, and it wasn't your son's fault that the man died. It was bigger than that, God has His own plans. I know we appreciated the EMT's efforts, that we understand how much he wanted to save him. i am so proud of your son. Love to Jeff and to you. Jan
Oh Jan life is so hard some days how are u anyways hugs and thankd
I'm doing fair most days, even laugh sometimes. Christmas time is just so hard. One ornament is a photo of Ben, and we recorded his voice on saying "Look what I got."
I had a relative who did a lot of the deep water rescues back in the S. Carolina flooding. This type of work is a calling. I'm sure it means a great deal to the man's family that someone (a crew I'm sure) tried so hard to save their loved one. Mamas don't usually get medals, but good job, Mom.
lol that;s for sure hugs
Such a brave young man. You must be very proud. Thank him for his service.
Well i will do just that hugs
Thank you for such a wonderful son/policeman. Thank him for his brave service. It sounds like he tried so very hard to help this man, but that Heaven needed another angel instead of his life on earth. May God bless your son for his attempts and give him extra hugs when you next see him.
i will thanks Leaha
Well, you must be so very proud...so sad that his valiant efforts were not enough...ice can be a very tricky trap. Thank him for his bravery and his service...
yes ice scares me badly
Congratulations to your son Jeff. Ice is such a hard thing for people to understand the conditions. We just lost 2 people on thin ice already this winter. I don't understand how they think it can be safe when we are at least 20 degrees above normal temp this time of year. Jeff was brave to try and save a life.
hes like that we /you do what u gotta right
Congratulations to your son Carolyn. What a magnificent effort, sorry that the man he was trying to save lost his life. What a selfless act for him to do and go into an ice filled river. No wonder you are so proud. Love Chris
Thanks Chris for your kind words hugs
Congratulations to him for being a hero. He deserves that award because he risked his own life . I am very sad his efforts did not succeed, but pleased he lived.
Thanks Karen hugs
Thank him for his service. I think we need to do more to honor our Firemen and Policemen. Very handsome
I admire your son. I am sorry that his efforts were not enough.
Yes he was so sad ****
It has to be a hard job to accept, that you try with all your might and still loose someone. But it also must be so fulling and rewarding when you save so many more lives. He is a handsome young man and thank him for his service to our fellow mankind.
Thanks yes he's a big boy 6 foot4 and 250 pound but he is not fat just big lol
