I have many friends who will be leaving here soon, and that saddens me greatly. The other night I was at dinner with some of them, and found myself laughing a lot, as always happens when I'm with them.
Five of the six of these folks (LT B, LT T, LT P, SSG S, and SGT P) will soon be out of here. While I'm glad for them that they'll be getting home soon, I'm going to miss them a lot.
(I'm really grateful that SFC K will still be here, not only so that we can commiserate, but also because she's so much fun to be around.)
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
