In memory of Amy Seyboth Tirador

On Thursday, I was on my laptop (as I always am) and heard the news in the background say that we lost the first female soldier from the capital region who was serving in Iraq. I was even more shocked when I heard her name, looked up and saw that it was the sister of one of our 2009 brides. I didn’t know Amy very well, but I could certainly tell just from working with her at her sister’s wedding that she had a very sweet spirit about her. My heart goes out to her husband and family. Please keep them in your thoughts during this very difficult time.

To read some more about Amy’s story and what a true hero she was, here are a few websites with the story:

Charlisa - I still can’t believe Amy is gone. I knew Amy from when we were stationed in Germany. We deployed to Turkey together. She was very intilligent and a really nice person. She was a Private First Class and a medic the last time I saw her. I wasn’t surprised when I found out she made Staff Sergeant in such short time. She was just that damn good. R.I.P Amy!

mickey - Ty so much for your kind words Margaret and Cheryl they mean a lot. And for this site as well, ty Sawicki. I’m so grateful to have seen this. We will all miss her; I miss her everyday and I hope to truly know the truth someday. This honor for my wife is beyond words…Thank you!

admin - Thank you for your kind words, Cheryl. We are so sorry for you and your family’s loss. I think of Amy often.

Margaret,
Glad you had been of some comfort. I can’t imagine how terrible this is for them.

Cheryl Seyboth Shepard - I am so proud to be Amy’s cousin. I want to thank Sawicki Studio’s for remembering our family and setting up this beautiful tribute to our beloved Amy. She loved her country, cherished her family, was devoted to and loved her husband dearly. She was taken from us far too early. My heart aches for Mickey, her parents, Liz and for April and Evan. We try to find comfort knowing that she was doing what she believed in and that in her service of this country she died for us all. Please remember, honor and respect our service men and women now and always.

Margaret - I was at the Frankfort airport in Germany on Friday and met Amys husband as he was awaiting his flight to Philly. He recognized us as Americans and shared his tragic story with us. My heart went out to him then and to her family now. I am happy we were there to keep him a little company.
