Another Goodbye

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Today my husband and I are saying goodbye to another friend.

It honestly feels like we have been getting kicked in the teeth constantly for the last two weeks. Last week, we lost a close friend and today is his memorial.

My husband has been asked to speak at the memorial today and yesterday I spent the afternoon writing out his memories for him, and then we tweaked them last night.

I have been really struggling as you can probably tell from my food tracker and exercise tracker this past week. I hate having another loss in my life that is tangible and serious. I know my husband misses his friend, and I do too.

Pray for us and our unit of soldiers today as they all bid goodbye to one of their own. It's not going to be an easy day. RIP SSG Gonzales, we really miss you.

    I am sorry for the loss of another hero. The men and women of the military are to be commended for signing that blank check, up to and including making the supreme sacrifice, payable to the USA to wage the war to give Americans and their Allies peace and freedom. We all know that freedom IS NOT free.

    I work with Veterans of Canada and also the USA and have attended close to 100 funerals and memorials on both sides of the border in the past year...I KNOW and FEEL each and every loss.

    May God bless you, his family and friends and keep us all safe.
