May the useless scum responsible for this face true justice, if not here, in the next world. To take anyone from their family and friends is bad enough, to do it at this time of year is completely reprehensible. A good man who served others to be taken by such useless things is a horror.

My heart and prayers go out to all who know and love Cpl. Stauffer. Your Christmas has been taken from you this year, but don't let them win and forever keep your husband, father, friend, acquaintance in your minds and hearts and he will never truly be far from you.

God Bless you Cpl. Stauffer and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
