~Love you, Sheri


Dear Kim, I won't tell you it will be easy because it will not be. But I can tell you that I have learned here that you are a strong woman like me and I made it through two deployments with our son and one with my husband. Take it day by day and write him lots of letters. Send photos of the dogs and lake friends and his beautiful neice. I will keep him in my prayers.

Amy Jo

Hi Kim,

I will be praying for Shawn and his safe return... and you... I know it has to be hard....

Amy Jo


Having never gone through what you've just experienced I cannot imagine your pain. But I can tell you that I will pray for you and all your family for his safe return. Blessings, Kim.

Beth K.

Oh, Kim. This is why we pray for peace on earth. Prayers...


Praying . . . (((Hugs))) . . . may the time pass quickly til he is safely home!


He will be back.
Prayers to you all.
Angels everywhere. God's hand everywhere.

I too feel your pain. It's hard when they go off to do something they are passionate about, but we just have to let them go. Doesn't make it any easier though. I will pray for Shawn and your family. Before you know it, he will be walking down the aisle with his love.


What a sweet message he left for you...I'll be lifting Shawn (and all the family) in prayer daily.


Praying for you all.

Becky from Tennessee

Oh Kim, this is so touching. Sending you a hug.
I'm saying prayers for all of you.


I'm sure there are no words to make you feel better right now but know that there are many praying for Shawn's safe return. In the meantime, you have that beautiful little baby to help you through this difficult time. I too love his message :-)

Lynn Day

Kim, I have no words ~ only overwhelming gratitude so I will leave someone else's words. “That’s what it takes to be a hero, a little gem of innocence inside you that maks you want to believe that there still exists a right and wrong, that decency will somehow triumph in the end.” ~ Lise Hand.

Jana T

Sending prayers your way. Thank you, Shawn for your service to our county! Jana in Texas

MJ Smith

Praying for Shawn (and you). Very sweet message he left you. Can't wait until it says "Hi Mom ... I'm home"!


Prayers that God will hold him in his hands.

Prayers for you until you touch his hand again.


Just precious, (remember his embrace) and allow God's embrace; His strong arm, to hold you and keep you as His angels surround Shawn and keep him from all harm.

Nancy Maisenbach

Kim, My heart goes out to you as you and your family say good-bye for now. Love the post above mine. XO
