A few quiet moments with his Sweetheart before leaving yesterday.
To my precious son and close friend:
May this be a time of adventure as you see and experience new places
May the beauty of the setting sun over the ocean take your breath away
May the continual roll of the waves remind you of my constant prayers for you
May you easily recall moments of sheer joy when loneliness sneaks up
May the immense love that I feel for you travel beside you wherever you go
And may God bring you home safely
