He just left today to Afghanistan and serving our country. It was very sad to him go but I know God is with him every minute. I hope and pray that he will return safely to us. He serves in the Army but can't remember right now what his status is.
I do have a ribbon in my shop that is dedicated to him:
Before he left I wrote him this poem. I never got a chance to give it to him but will mail it as soon as we can send him some things through the mail.
FOR MY BROTHER
I know we had a hard long road to travel
and so many complications on the way.
But no matter what happened
our love would grow everyday.
We may not have gotten along
but we always seem to get through it.
No matter what words were said
or tears we shed.
Now that you are leaving
you will be greatly missed.
I will be thinking, loving, and praying
for you each and everyday.
You will always be my brother
and my best friend.
Please remember all the good times
we shared and even the bad.
Because those are the memories we share
and will always for each and everyday.
Please remember all of the servicemen that are serving for us right now. Because they too have a long hard road to travel with the many months ahead.
