YAY MAY! (hurry up and get here!)

Dear Gabe,

News of your trip home in May is already getting folks around here very excited.  Dad called Kayle last night to see if she would be able to bring Zachary out during that time.  We're waiting to hear back from her.  Zachary was sick so she was getting ready to take him to the doctor.  Wish I was closer to them so I could fuss over him as well.  Sometimes I feel so helpless as a grandmother.  Oh well, I'll just have to spoil him twice as much when I do get to be with him.

Your friends are both recouperating well.  The one in Bethesda has come out of his coma and is showing some signs of response to voice and stimulation.  He's still not fully conscious but hopefully that is just a matter of time.  As for Doc, hopes are that he will be in a wheelchair by Friday.  He's still in a lot of pain, but he's a Rakkasan and you know how they are.  He'll probably be up and running around in no time.

Rocky is so proud of her hunter's safety card.  She's already used it and got a cottontail with her little .22 Cricket.  Dad made nuggets out the 4 rabbits she, Art and he shot and let me tell you, they were tasty!  They'll probably go back out this weekend to get more to make bunny burgers for our Harvest feast. Don't know that there will be any kind of season open when you get here so we'll have to get you out fishing just so you can throw something on the table even if you aren't here for the feast.  You should be back safe in the states by then, and thats good enough for me.

Until then, as always... miss you, love you!

Mom

I just found your journal, and it brings tears to my eyes.  Happy tears, but tears none the less.   What a beautiful way to show your son how very much you love him..   I am the mother of 3 boys and one of them nearly joined the Marines, but couldn't because his asthma decided to flare up, and, well, the armed forces just won't have that.

I have put you on my alerts, and look forward to more letters to your awesome son Gabe.  
May he stay safe, and God Bless him and all the others who continue to fight for our freedom!

God Bless America!
