It happened! Praise the Lord, it happened!
After 12 months, 3 weeks,
misunderstandings, unexpected delays,
and a couple of hours in the hanger,
Daddy and family were reunited
around 4:30/5:00 am Thursday morning!
Opening the hanger doors...
Marines, arrived from Iraq, in the background
standing in formation...
Prayer was said and Marines were "let loose"
to be reunited with their families and friends.
We were overjoyed to greet our special Marine, our hero...
our daddy and beloved...
After savoring those precious moments,
we were eager to bring him home...
...picking up his bags...
ready for breakfast, sleep,
and to begin our year right... with Daddy...

and will yet praise thee more and more."

from this time forth and for evermore."
