In Loving Memory of
Spc. Daniel A. Fuentes
On April 6, 2007 our Family Circle was broken as we received the tragic news that our son SPC Daniel Fuentes of Levittown, died in Baghdad, Iraq in service of our country. The Fuentes, Rotger, and Lenis Family are traveling this painful journey together and strong. “Yes, our Family Circle has been broken, but the link will always remain in our hearts.” We have been able to endure this journey because of the out pouring of compassion from our neighbors, the Levittown community and the surrounding communities. Indeed, we have been comforted by the care and concern that you have shown since Daniel’s death in Iraq. Your support has strengthened us and made it possible for us to get through this journey and to keep Daniel’s memory alive.
We want to say thank you to all of the men and women in our Armed Forces who put their lives on the line every day to protect this country.
To all our Armed Forces personnel who have served and who are serving our country. You have our deepest gratitude for securing and defending our freedom.
