Praying for Peace in the Valley for this family. Captain Nicholas S Whitlock touched many lives that are anonymous to his family & friends because he touched everyone he met in his daily walk of life with his bright smile & joy of life. Many are saddened and brokenhearted over the loss of Nick all around the World. I pray each person that loved him find a special way to honor him by improving their own life someway. Aspire to be like him. What a better world we would have. Never forgotten Captain Nicholas Whitlock. We love you.
You all were such a testimony to all people within viewing distance, with your steadfast faith and grace. May the Lord continue to hold you in the palm of His hands. In remember Capt. Nicholas Whitlock, I thank the Lord for your life, Nick. Faith and Family and Friends-you were true to all and touched thousands of lives. Thank you for your genuine love for our country and your ultimate service. As you took your ultimate flight homeward, we stand and gaze upward and say, "See you soon, Airman. Job well done!"I promise to keep your loved ones in my prayers!
I will never forget you or the sacrifice you made for our country. The pain is still as fresh as the day it was announced. Reality is so hard to accept and still hasn't set in. Missing you dearly my friend.
Condolences to Capt Whitlock's family and friends. Our hearts and prayers go out to you! We thank Nick for his service to our country. My husband is riding today with the Patriot Guard for Nick as he is taken to the Funeral Home in Newnan. It is an honor for the PGR to see Nick properly escorted home !! RIP
I wanted to thank you for giving your life for my freedom. Without our troops this country wouldnt be free. As an airman's wife, I give you all of my respect and beyond thankful for you! Your family and friends are in my thoughts. Thank you again Airman and may you rest in peace. Huaaaaaaaaa :)
You left your home town and your best life, and went to a faraway place to bring freedom to those who did not know you and didn't appreciate you. Just like Jesus.We praise the Lord for your total and complete sacrifice. Now you and Jesus, together. Thank You Jesus for Captain Nicholas Whitlock's sacrifice - You were his best example.
Thank you for serving our country. It is people like you who make it possible for us to be free and live the American Dream. May Gods grace and love forever hold you close. I also pray that God watches over your family during this time of sadness and brings them comfort knowing that you are with him.
(PRAYER) Lord, I know hearts are hurting right now, but Father I ask if you would just be in the mist of this situation. Father God, be with the families, when every one has left and they are faced to make the unimaginable decisions. Father God, hold their hands and wipe their eyes when the tears begin to fall. Father God, reassure them that in the dark time, you are still with them. Father God, give them strength, give the courage and Father give the peace. Peace in there hearts to know that Nicholas has done his deeds on this side and is rejoicing on the other side. And Father God, let them remember the good things Nickolas has done and not allow the enemy to fill their hearts with depression. For weeping may endure for a night, but joy WHITLOCK Family comes in the morning. All these things, I ask, in your son Jesus name I pray, AMEN!!

I knew Captain Whitlock well. He loved his wife and loved his country. He was a true patriot and hero. Nick always had a smile on his face and was a true friend to many. I pray that his lovely wife one day finds comfort. God Bless America.

Edward, thank you so much for the sacrifice you paid for our freedom. To the parents of this brave soldier: My prayers are with you through your time of sorrow. Your son is a Hero and that is how he will always be remembered.
Cid was one of best men I have ever had the privilege to know. I learned many things from him that include, but not limited to, being a good corpsman, being a leader of men, speaking with integrity, being a good friend, and how to be a man. He was great man. I enjoy telling "Cid Story's" with friends that knew him. Thanks Cid for all the life lessons, the good memories, and for always having good advise for me when I needed it.Every Guinness is still for youPaul Feely
I want to thank Eddie and his family for his sacrifice so that we could be free! God Bless You, Eddie!
My heart goes out to his family, so sorry you had to lose him so soon. It's hard to lose our young men and women to war, but it hits harder when it's at home. The Riverside area will miss him.I will be out there on the Hwy waving my flag in your honor! Thank you again and bless you!
So proud of Marine Lance Cpl. Edward Dycus. Proud that he had the courage to enlist in the Marines. Proud that he was willing to fight for the freedom of all Americans as well as others around the world. I am so sad that he had to pay the ultimate sacrifice for his service but I am so very thankful for all he gave.
To the Dycus family, his fellow Marines, and his friends, my heart goes out. I have kept you all in my prayers during this incredibly difficult time. Know that you are not going through this alone. I am proud of Greenville and Washington County for the support they have given your Hero. We no longer live there but share your pain as well. I wish you God's speed. I have seen the memorial video and had to giggle at his spirit and his smile. Keep these things with you always! God bless you all.
Words cannot express our sorrow, and thank you seems so inadequate. Your willingness to serve our country will never be forgotten, and your memory will live in the hearts of the MS Delta. Thank you for giving your all. Sending prayers for your family and friends.
I am the wife of a Army soldier. I am the mother of a Army soldier. I watched my son go to a foreign country. I waited everyday to hear his voice or see him on Skype. Thank you for your service to our country. You are a very brave soldier that did his country well. God bless you and keep you in his loving tender arms. Prayers and thoughts go to your family. Love to all.
There is no greater tragedy than losing a child. My heart breaks for your family, but I know that Heaven has another angel watching over us. May God grant you peace in abundance as you go through this season of grief. Teri Ramsey

He gave His life for what He believed, now live Your life for that! Thats what He would want. My heart goes out to You and your family. Semper Fi :)

My heart is saddened by the loss of such a hero..... but my heart also swelled today as Greenville pulled together to honor this hero. From the bottom of my heart Eddie, Thank you for your service and for your ultimate sacrife for our Freedoms.
As a parent, I can not imagine the worries of knowing my child is in harm's way in a foreign country, so far from home. To have the worst happen has to be unimaginable pain and loss.I pray the Dycus family have peace in their minds and pride in their hearts for raising such a special person. Thanks to Edward and all military for their daily sacrifice in their service and the ultimate sacrifice by those lost in protecting our freedoms here at home.
