The gift of forgiveness

I can't imagine what this is like... for any of the people involved.

-- WINNIPEG -- The wife of a soldier accidentally shot and killed by a close friend while in Afghanistan says she has reached out to support the friend charged in his death.

Master Cpl. Jeffrey Walsh, 33, of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry regiment, was killed Aug. 9 near Kandahar by a single shot while sitting in a G-Wagon during a routine patrol.

"I've just let Rob know that I'm here for him. He's going through enough," Mason, a 29-year-old mother of three children, said from her home just outside CFB Shilo, about 170 km west of Winnipeg.
