Dear Gabe,

I just wanted to share this letter with you.  I got it from McClean's dad, who got it from a co-worker's wife, who got it from one of her special needs students.  He posted several letters on the Rakkasan board, but this one really grabbed at my heart strings with its sincere questions.

"Is it hard to be in the Army?"

"How do you get to see your mom?"

It won't be long now, I've got a new, unoffical count down going on inside my head.  I'm trying not to get too excited, because we know how easily the dates can change, but I've got my fingers crossed... and my  toes, and my eyes, and arms, legs, and anything else that I can cross... which isn't a lot in my current physical shape, but hey, every little bit helps.

Be safe son.  Miss you, Love you!

Oooh how sad, the innocence of a child.... How do you get to see your mom?  Because, of course, in his world, he can't imagine not being with his mommy...

Soon, Gabe... we are counting down with your mom in prayers since we don't know the date...

be well,
