Godspeed, My Son

It has been about 24 hours now since we put Ryan on the plane and said our goodbyes. The goodbye part is always hard. Kind of like "ripping off the bandaid," as Heidi would say.

We are gonna miss the happy, sweet, kind, compassionate, hilarious, thoughtful, friendly, hard-working, and humble presence that is Ryan. He leaves a gigantic hole. But what a happy experience! He is doing exactly the right thing at exactly the right time. Wouldn't change it for the world. All I can say is LUCKY CROATIA.

Enjoy the adventure, and Godspeed, my son. (Especially the speed part!)

Happy Birthday Ang.
A sweeter girl was never born.
Thanks for keeping us laughing and reaching higher.
You are the best thing that ever happened to July 10.
{Do you realize it was 70 degrees the day you were born????}
Fabulous mom, wife, daughter, and sister. Not to mention all the other stuff you do.
Hope your day is excellent! You deserve the very best.
