Soldier from LaGrange, Ga., killed in Iraq

The Associated Press

LAGRANGE, Ga. — Family members say an Army sergeant from LaGrange has been killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq, a week after his first wedding anniversary.

Relatives told the LaGrange Daily News that 21-year-old Sergeant Corey Spates, 21, died Feb. 10 in the Diyala province.

His wife and parents were notified by the Army that evening.

The family said they were told there were multiple casualties in the blast, but that the Army would not release details until the next of kin of all victims had been notified.

Spates, who attended Troup High School, had left for his second deployment in November. He and his wife celebrated their first anniversary last week.

  Your sacrifice will remain in our hearts for a lifetime,

with intense gratitude. May God bless you and your family.

Rest Safely and Securely in God's Loving Arms.

We cherish too, the Poppy red

That grows on fields where valor led,

It seems to signal to the skies

That blood of heros never dies.

  My Shoes.~~I am wearing a pair of shoes, they are ugly shoes, uncomfortable shoes. I hate my shoes. Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair. Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step. Yet, I continue to wear them. I get funny looks wearing these shoes, they are looks of sympathy. I can tell in other's eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs. They never talk about my shoes. To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable. To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them. But, once you put them on, you can never take them off. I now realize I am not the only one who wears these shoes. Their are many pairs in this world. Some people are like me and ache daily as they try to walk in them. Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite so much. Some have worn the shoes so long that day's will go by before they think about how much they hurt. No family member or friend deserves to wear these shoes. Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger person. These shoes have given me the strength to do anything. They have made me who I am. I will forever walk in the shoes of a family member or friend who has lost a soldier defending our freedom. ~~Deepest Sympathy to his family and friends.~~Norma Coan Louisville, Ky. U.S.A.

  Don't stand by my grave and weep; I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awake in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of bird's in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there I did not die.

  Dear Sgt. Spates, ~~I am grateful you chose to go when others said the cause was wrong. You did not turn your back in order to help in some way to bring about peace. I am grateful for you because tonight I can sit down and eat a warm meal. I am grateful for you tonight because of your sacrifice, I can say, " I do not like war." This is without worrying my door will get kicked in and I will be dragged away.~~Mostly, I am grateful to you because of your sacrifices. I am reminded once again of what it is I have. For this I am grateful to you, because I can go out and say the absolutely dumbest things, and do so because being dumb is not a crime.~~I am grateful to you, because I get to sit down with my family and friends and have a meal in peace. I am also grateful to you because if I think a certain politician is a fool.....I can say it without being lined up against a brick wall and shot.~~Their are many things Sgt. Spates that I am grateful to you, because of the fact you didn't say no. Peace be with yours and most of all I salute you. Because, well I am grateful to you Sgt. Spates. ~~Thank you again Sgt. Spates for your ultimate sacrifice to defend freedom and keep America safe. Nikki Coan Louisville, Ky. U.S.A.

  EAGLES~~To bring down evil, some must fall. To fight for right, some answer the call.~~To help the oppressed, some give up their time, their homes, their loves, they're eagles not doves.~~To keep peace for those in need, some go into wars of just we read.~~To keep us safe it's soldiers we call. they will all give some and some give all.~~Thank you, Sgt. Spates for giving your all to defend America. I wish you didn't have to die. Sincerely, Sydney Meyer Age 10 Louisville Ky.

  There beside a grave she stands. A folded flag clutched in her hands. A silent teardop on her face, her brave young child has entered grace. She does not hear the sermon said, just memories run through her head. The child she held so long ago, the child with faith she let go. The child who heard the nation's call, and in the end gave it all. Without fear or thoughts of self, thoughts of freedom and little else. The bugle sounds TAPS in the wind, a mournful sound it does send. A reminder to us all, that for freedom, this price was paid, and her sweet young to rest was laid.~~Deep and Heart-felt Sympathy to your family~~Stevie Coan Louisville, Ky. U.S.A.

  Dedicated in memory of Sgt. Corey E. Spates with his loving family in mind.----Love and Gratitude---- The agony is so great....and yet I stand it. Had I not loved so very much, I would not hurt so much. But goodness knows I would not want to diminish that precious love by one fraction of an ounce. I will hurt and I will be grateful to take that hurt, for it bears witness to the depth of our meanings, and for that I will be eternally grateful.

GOD BLESS~~David Hatfield ---New Orleans, La.
