My hero died

By mrasor Published: August 2, 2006

Joe Tomci was courageous yet funny, powerful yet compassionate, ambitious yet generous, and most importantly, he had a heart the size of a Hummer.

At age 21, the patriotic Marine from Stow is dead from a roadside bomb in Iraq.

He was a good friend of mine. I talked to him just three days ago.

If you know someone in the military, thank them. Tell them you love them and you appreciate what they are doing in a terrifying world, because you never know when that phone call might come.
