This is my son, saying “So Long” to his beautiful 7 month old daughter before going on his first deployment in the Air Force. Hopefully he will only be gone from his wife and daughter (and our family) for 4 months.
I hope he knows how PROUD I am of him. For being in the US Air Force and giving of himself, for being an excellent person, for always ALWAYS being a kind, considerate, responsible son, for being a wonderful husband, and for being a phenomenal father to our very first granddaughter.
Even though he and his family have been living out-of-state, him leaving for another country has me feeling something that I’ve never felt before. I will keep him and his family in my thoughts and prayers until he returns and I cannot wait to get my hands on him, his wife, and their sweet baby girl. I miss you David. I love you so much. I’m so proud of the man who you have become! God bless you!
