Shortly after Jeffrey "Toz" Toczylowski died in 2005 after falling from a helicopter, his friends received an email message from him that opened with this line: "If you are getting this email, it means that I have passed away. No, it's not a sick Toz joke, but a letter I wanted to write in case this happened." The email, forwarded at the soldier's request by a Green Beret pal, invited each recipient to a party that Toz had planned in advance (and set aside $100,000 to fund) to celebrate his life.
