Beneath a spectacular sky on a warm and beautiful day, they gently placed their heavy burden in the back of the silver hearse parked at the steps a few feet off a country road in a town where nearly everyone expects only the best to occur.The young man now dead was Coby Cutler. He was killed last week in Parris Island, S.C. Struck by lightning while out on the rifle range at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot.

The first funny piece of news my husband shared in a letter from boot camp this summer was that he had been chosen to be his platoon's scribe. He'd have to write schedules, record scores and fill out paperwork, among other duties. My first thought was: Have they seen his handwriting? I have. During 13 weeks of communicating exclusively by letter -- BlackBerrys and cell phones and laptops are as forbidden as long hair and first names at the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot at Parris Island, S.C. -- what I'd long thought of as chicken scratch soon became the most comforting sight in my universe.
