From Shannon 09/10/06:
The wedding went so great. It just all came together.
The weather was beautiful. We had the ceremony in a garden and the
photographer’s pictures came out great. I can’t wait to order them. We had the
reception at a restaurant. The food was to die for. We did all the traditions.
We cut the cake, threw the bouquet and garter, had our first dance and people
even decorated our car. Michael and I had the best day. Here are just a few
pictures (above) people have given me.
Michael left yesterday and I won’t lie, it was the
saddest day of my life. Not only are you hurting for yourself, but you look
around and see all the other families going through the same thing. Then I
looked over and a dad was saying goodbye to his baby that was born 5 days ago.
It was just awful. But the commanding officer seemed very confident and a good
leader. So please keep praying. There are only 237 more days to go.
