You don't need to be reminded what stress can do to us. Your son is just as concerned and would assure you that he can take care of himself and to do the same for yourself. His courage, strength and committment for our country is a testiment to the same characters that I am sure his mother possesses. Our enemy is a wicked one in both cases and only we can make a difference in surviving the ordeals we are faced with.
I wish there were words sufficient to explain how grateful I am for you and for your son. Sacrifices made unselfishly are the ones that change the world. Thank him for me and you are receiving many positive thoughts. -TJ

It is a wonderfully brave and honorable thing he is doing.
Take care of yourself... for Brad, as well as your family. Of course, keeping stress at low ebb IS easier said than done, but do your best... please. Brad needs to know that you and the rest of his family are going to keep the home fires burning, so that when he returns, it will be in the loving arms of his loved ones.
Warm, Soft Hugs,

I will remember you, will you remember me? Just as I was sending this note to you, a snippet of this song came on.
Sounds like such a close bond there. I firmly believe your son is holding that bond close to his heart as he heads out.
So young, so innocent, he depends as much on you as you on him. This too shall pass, as my beloved Aunt Bessie used to say. Write, write and write each day and if he's fortunate to have a laptop email daily. He loves you and you him; such devotion does not come with tribulations.
It is what it is...........
