SSG Collin J Bowen, January 18, 1970 - March 14, 2008

It is with a heavy heart that I must write that Collin passed this morning. He was a hero to us all. I pray for his family's continued strength and peace of mind. Here is his Caringbridge site, in which his brother, Justin, chronicled his fight for life.

I just read his story. So sorry. It's stuff like this that makes what's happening over there so real to those of us who don't have loved ones directly involved.
Prayers will still be sent to his friends and family.

My father, Thomas E. Costigan, also passed away on Frinday, 14 March 2008. Thanks to the unselfish heroism of people like Collin, my father enjoyed a full life of over 78 years. My father had red roses on the alter at his funeral and I want to have the honor of someday this summer placing a red rose on Collin's grave at Arlington Cemetary. God bless Collin and his family.
