In Memoriam to My Nephew, Matthew O'Bryant

 My nephew, Matthew O'Bryant, was one of the two US military personnel that was killed in the terrorist bombing of the Pakistan Marriott last weekend.  He was a great kid (22 years old) and he will be missed very much by his wife, brother and sisters, parents, the rest of our family, and his many friends.

Our deepest condolences to you, your family, Matthew's wife and many friends.  We can hardly begin to repay the immense sacrifice that brave souls like Matthew and their families have made on our behalf.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the whole family! My cousin is Bridgett O'Bryant(his wife) and while they were stationed up here at Ft. Meade,MD I was able to meet him and hang out with them and Matt was a really great guy and a sailor. He was very proud of what he did.

Paul, I assure you that people in Pakistan remember those who were killed and the families who lost their loved ones in their prayers.

I was Matt and Bridgett's pastor in Laurel, Maryland.  We have only known them for a short time but we love them dearly.  It was such a shock to all of our church family to hear the news.  Matt and Bridgett were both vital parts of our children's ministry.  Our deepest sympathy and prayers go out to the family.

HE IS NOT FALLEN, BUT RISEN, NOT DEAD

BUT IN THIS PATH WE MORTALS TRED,

ONLY GONE A FEW TRIFILING STEPS AHEAD,

AND NEARER TO THE END.

AND YOU TOO, MY FRIEND, ONCE PAST THAT BEND

SHALL MEET AGAIN WITH THIS FRIEND YOU

FANCIED DEAD.

My thoughts and prayers are with you,Bridgett, and the rest of the family and friends.  I was one of Matt's classmates while we were at NAS Pensacola and Corry Station.  I have been assigned to a ship and was out to sea when the news was left on my phone.  I cannot imagine what you are going thru, I can only offer my prayers, thoughts, and willingness if you need any help. Matt was a shining example of selflessness and courage to fight for what he thought was right - and unfortunately he paid the ultimate cost.  Even tho I too am in the service, I owe him.  You can contact me anytime.  ctmallen2007@yahoo.com

God Bless you all.

Sad to hear of the passing of a shipmate.  I got out of the Navy in July of this year and found your site while doing a search of my name.  What tragic coincidence.  

Eternal Father, strong to save,

Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,

Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep

Its own appointed limits keep;

Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,

For those in peril on the sea!

I graduated from Theodore High School with Matthew. He was also in JROTC with me and he was an awesome person. His love for the Lord and his pride in what he did inspired me so much. I am so terribly sorry for your loss and I will continue to pray for your family. God Bless your family and America Bless God
