I am so proud of my handsome brother for his choice to serve our Father in Heaven and Savior. On March 18th he reported to the Missionary Training Center and embarked on his 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. (He will be serving in the Washington, Kennewick mission.) It was almost torture saying goodbye to him. Bitter-sweet in its truest form. I am confident that he will do an awesome job and will touch the lives of all he comes in contact with. He has a special, warm spirit about him, and the people he meets, teaches, serves, and loves are more than lucky to be able to experience even a small portion. I love him. I am proud of him.
Little man is surely going to miss "uncle Bud". He still talks about him all the time in his ramblings of choo-choo trains. These two were pals. We'll have to blow up a picture of the two of them, so Kaden remembers his friend.
I love him. I am proud of him.
