I said goodby to a friend today. He was on his way to Iraq.
We were elementary and high school classmates and I
remember him most as a friendly and always available
help to anyone who needed him. His family said goodbye at the
airport. His friends, like me, probably didn't know he was here until
he had to leave again. I made sure to remind him to watch his back and that we were praying for
his safe return. See you later Mike. Come home soon.
