(FOUNTAIN, Colo., September 2, 2004) Melissa while holding Carson, helps Dakota release balloons to the heavens and wish dad a good night from their launching point in the backyard. This evening within the Givens home the family gathered after dinner to inflate balloons, insert Carson's most recent "cute in the kitchen" photo, write on the balloons to give dad messages and send the balloons off to heaven. Melissa Givens, Dakota,7, and Carson,1, live together, now alone after the death of her husband, their dad, US Army Pfc. Jesse A.Givens who was killed in Iraq as a member of the US military. He was part of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. He drowned when his tank fell into a river as his unit fought fires set by insurgents, May 1, 2003. He was 34 years old. (Photo by: STEVEN R.
