BEATIFUL LOVE LETTER ! PAT TILLMAN'S "in case I die letter." Read the day his wife Marie found out he had been killed in Afg.: "It's difficult to summarize 10 years together, my love for you, my hopes for your future, and pretend to be dead all at the same time . . . I simply cannot put all this into words. I'm not ready willing or able. ... Through the years I've asked a great deal of you, therefore it should surprise you little that I have another favor to ask. I ask that you live."
"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted to You." Psalm 51:10-13 (NKJV)
