As the parents of Spc. Kyle Coumas, we would like to thank everyone in our community for honoring our son. The cards and letters of sympathy, gratitude and encouragement have been heartwarming and very much appreciated. There are no words to describe the pride and warmth we experienced at the sight of so many people lining the streets, holding signs, waving the American flag and even saluting as the hearse passed by. We will never forget the moment we learned of our son's sacrifice in Afghanistan; nor will we forget the support and dignity with which our community helped us say goodbye and lay our fallen hero to rest.
Michael (Greg) and Lori Coumas
