The first day I heard the news Lacey’s mother was on the phone with the hospice.
The doctor was on his way out the door.
Laughlin said: “The first day it just hit me.
It was very hard for me to hear the news.”
Lacey said he was “so excited” to get the news and to “get on with my life”.
He said: I was just so excited to be alive and be part of this world.
His wife was his “hero” Laughlin’s wife, Amy, had been “her life”, his wife “the most important thing” in his life, he said.
She was a “hero to me”.
He didn’t think about suicide until a year after the diagnosis In his final few months, he wasn’t sure if he would ever be able to come out of the hospital alive, but he knew that was his last day.
“I had no idea that it would end that way.
I just felt like it was time,” he said of his final hours.
He wanted to share the book with other people The book is “a testament to the bravery of the men and women in the armed forces”, Lacey wrote.
“It’s an inspiring story that speaks to a large number of soldiers who have been through the same struggle as I have and know that life will always be tough, but that if they work together, life will be even harder.”
He also said that people should consider getting the book in bookstores, to show support.
“A few years ago I would have loved to see it in the shop, but with the way it’s received, I think people need to take a moment and share it,” he added.

“Football is something that you get to experience,” he wrote.
Lydie was “fans of the game and the whole game” but had never really considered football as his career.
“That’s why I wanted to do this book, to share it with other football fans.”
The final chapters are heartbreaking and moving Lacey described how his life was a series of “heartbreaking and heartwarming” moments.
The stories he shared about his journey through the book are heartbreaking, and the “heart breaking” ones are particularly moving.
“Some people would be shocked and disappointed by the end of the book, but I would say to them, ‘I’ve lived my life and I’m here to tell you what happened.
This is what I saw, this is what my life was like, this was what I felt like.'”
He has been told he’s gone too soon Lacey, a soldier himself, is in his final years of life, but this is the first time he’s been told it would be too soon.
“People who have fought with me in the past have told me I’m going to pass away before I’m old enough to say I’ve been a real soldier,” he told The Independent.
“But I’m not sure how that’s going to be in the future.
I’ve never fought a war so long and I’ve fought to keep people alive.
If we are really determined to fight, we will win.” “
What I’ve learned from this is that the last battle is always the toughest.
If we are really determined to fight, we will win.”
