I was reminded today of where I was exacly 3 months ago.  It was while at a happy occasion today.  This time I was surrounded by family.  Not the variety of family of blood, but the family of smiles and tears, of hugs and handshakes.  Well, there were at least 3 warriors today who got a little extended hug, as Deb would do.  I somehow think they know via that hug, without words, how much we acknowledge, appreciate, understand the service, sacrifice and loss that our fighting men and women experience.  

The video loop was playing in my head the whole time..

Miss ya girl..

I saw the other half the other day and you can tell he's still down.

We'll see what we can do about that.


Missing my hugs.

Was thinking of you yesterday when I saw Y while waitin' for a mission..  I told her about Jake joining you guys and told her of my plans to drink the same Single Malt Scotch Whiskey that he did  in memory of all you's up in Region 7, but especially my bud's from Illinois.

Hi Sweetie,
Over the last few days I have been wondering if your exit to heaven felt more like six years or six seconds. I still can't decide.  It feels like both at the same time.  I do know  my love for you has not waned one iota.  I miss you so bad it makes me sick to my stomach.  Our friends gave you a fantastic tribute and send-off.  They have been wonderful trying to help and reach out to me.  They have done everything possible, but Baby, this is much harder than we ever imagined.  I'm sure by now, you are an indispensable aide to JonD.  Give him one of your special hugs from all of us stuck down here.  Have you convinced him yet it is always better to do things your way?  He's probably a faster learner than me.  I can't wait to see you and hold you again.  In the meantime, help JonD with the greatest homecoming of all.  Unfortunately, we have sent several to join you in Region 7.  Ride that new red bike with your Mom riding fluff frequently.  Our 5  adult children are fine.  They speak of you often and the positive influence you had on their lives.  They are proud to have had you for their Mom.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life.  You made me so very happy.  I am eternally grateful.
LCN for all eternity.

Hi Deb,

I stopped by to say hi, tell you how much we miss you and your smile. Now I see it was your birthday. So belated birthday wishes to you. I am sure JonD made sure it was as "Special" as you both are to us.

We miss you! Sending big (((hugs)))

Deb, it's hard to believe that it's going to be a year already.  You would be so proud of Mark and the kids.  It's always great to see them out at the missions as you would want them to be.  Honoring our heroes.  You may be gone but definately are not forgotten.  Rest in peace and ride free until we see each other again.

Hi Sweetie,
Was a very long ride to do an Honor Mission Today on our new Voyager.  We sent a Marine to join you, JonD, and Mike in Region 7.  He's in the same place as Joey.  A memorable place for sure.  I recalled our sorrow over Joey's loss and our race to the hospital immediately after his service.  I remembered how sick you were that day, and how you toughed it out.  That was one of many hard days, today was too.  I told Joey he should come find you, flash his smile, and collect one of your hugs.  Dead dog tired, and very, very sad.  
Can't wait to hold you again,
LCN

Ran into a kindred soul of yours the other day..  Never met her before but boy did she remind me of you..  Talked with her standing in a parking lot for over an hour..  Her husband was a Wake Island Survivior & POW.  Wow what a story.... Added 3 more books to my reading list..

See ya..

Well Sweetie, it looks like you've been busy up there.  I hope by now you have greeted Ron and gave him his hug.  In a few hours, the two year anniversary of my nightmare will be realized.  We both know how ugly it was, but you completed your transfer to Region 7.  Save me a seat.  I miss you so bad it's a deep pain in what is left of my heart.  You remain my first and last concious thought every single day.  LCN for all eternity.   Good night, sweet dreams, I love you!
