Friends and family gathered at Baconton Missionary Baptist Church in Liberty County to honor Third Infantry Division Sgt. Rene Knox yesterday.
Knox. Sgt. Chad Lake and Spc. Dakotah Gooding were on patrol in Iraq Sunday when their Humvee flipped over into a river, killing all three.
Last night, Gooding's widow Angela met Knox widow and daughter for the first time, comforting them in their shared loss.
Family Readiness Group leader Stefanie Poteet told us, "We are a big family. We all stick together. We close as a family. Not only do our husbands have a relationship like brothers, we have a relationship like sisters and we all support one another."
Sgt. Knox was assigned to the Third Infantry Division's Fifth Squadron, Seventh Cavalry. He'll be buried in his hometown of New Orleans.
