When finished there will be six (8) different photo galleries here when I finally get them finished so please check back often. if you have a picture of Rhys that is not featured here we would love to have a copy. You can email it to us at michael at

Memorial Galleries – Three (3) individual galleries with pictures from the memorial service held by his unit in Irag and the service at Harvest Christian Fellowship and Riverside National Cemetery.

Rhys William Klasno – Personal look at Rhys growing up – I wish we had more pictures of our “little boy” but we were so busy enjoying his company that we just didn’t think about it.

Sgt Rhys W. Klasno – This gallery has pictures of Rhys from Basic Training and his tour in Iraq. Includes pictures of Rhys’ military friends.

Rhys & Stephanie – Boy these two were like peas in a pod, they definitely belonged together. Early pictures through their wedding and early pics of a pregnant Steph.

London Eevie Klasno – OUR Pride & Joy!

  2. I cried when I saw these pictures again. I still find it so hard to believe that you’ve gone to be with our Lord! I keep thinking that you will just walk in the door at school to see me like you so often did. Rhys, can’t wait to see you again. It will be a grand reunion in heaven where there won’t be any more tears. I really miss you. With love, Ronda Gilbert

  4. Mrs. Klasno,
    I am sure you don’t remember me at all, but I remember you and your wonderful son. He, I, you, his father and my father spent family day of basic training together getting sunburned outside of the PX at Ft Jackson. Rhys was the best battle buddy a commrade could ask for, when we got discouraged or frustrated he had a way of putting everyone at ease. I am truley sorry for your loss, but am thankful that you have found a way to positively influence people thru your loss. He reminds us that freedom is not free; and although he is fallen, he will never be forgotten. I have some pictures if you would like them.

  5. Hello;
    Iam well aware of the sadness moms feel losing there loved ones in a war situation. Iam a woman veteran of the Vietnam War and lost many good firends as well as a brother not to long ago who fought in a war we would never win. I feel so much sarrow in my heart There are no words to say how I feel. Its a heart felt pain no one ever forgets. My heart goes out to those kids that have been lost since this war started as well as to the relatives invloved. I think of the men & Women who are fighting & serving our country every day.
    With All my heart

  6. I knew Rhys. We served together for a short time in the California Army National Guard, before he mobilized to Iraq. I’ve been thinking about him a lot lately. Thank you for this blog.
