Double amputee soldiers Dad killed 20 years ago in NI?

Amnyone see this news item? A mate caught it yesterday, showing a mum with her double amputee son, who had been caught by an IED in Afghan. She showed a picture of her husband, killed 20 years ago, in NI, whilst serving with 3 PARA.
The woman deserves a medal, some sort of official recognition surely? to lose a husband and have a son so terribly injured and yet still keep smiling. Amazing courage.
Not sure if it was the same item, but the son was a single amputee who wanted to get back on ops again asap (he did have an arm injury as well). His father had been in NI and been killed 20 years ago. Mother of the lad was v brave. A very moving article
Fortunately, her son survived. RIP to the N.I. veteran and utmost respect to the lady and her son.

That family have sacrificed far too much.
