The day started early for us all....we stayed up late talking the night away...I have already cried once or twice.
But we all got dressed up in our USA garb my daughter made for us...decorated the car and got everything ready for the day...
and the back says..."Our Hero Gabe Riley"
me and the kids
and headed on out...Gabe sat in the back with the kids
one in each side
on to the ceremony..
the kids got bears to hold onto
She is supporting our flag, supporting her dad
then we got only 20 minutes to say our good byes...not long at all.
At first they stood as one
then we kinda got dispursed as everyone took a minute to step in to say good bye to the family, the parents that raised him to be the man that he is today
a moment with his daughter, words of wisedom
a big fat hug
one lone moment with his new wife
then we moved out to the stageing area, where the buses were to carry them all away...
Goodbye to his kids
Good bye to his wife
but wait I need one last kiss she says
please to all my blogland friends keep
Our hero Gabe Riley in your prayers
as we walked away, in a moment my daugher, the Army wife walks alone with her children
she is strong, she is brave....she is going thru something I have never had to do...how do I help her, how do I guide her, how will she make it thru..
he loves his kids..
and they love him
please I pray he returns one day...to share his stories, his love , his future with my daughter and thier kids....and the rest of us..
God please take good care of him....we are counting on you...
