We had a going away party for
a friend of ours that we consider
to be family. This guy has been
around our family for many years.
His name is Donny Cartwright.
And his story goes like this.....
When this young man first came into our lives,
He had been one of my brothers friends.
Which then became his bestfriend.
He was around so much, that my
sister and I didn't tell people that we
had just one brother.
My Mom and Dad fell in love
with him as well and took him
in and has treated him as one
of their own.
He now has two beautiful daughters
that have been apart of our lives
as well. Every Holiday they have
spent with us and we have watch them grow
up to be very well behaved young women.
He is now remarried
and the last time he was in town we
all celebrated with a party for him.
The party was for his birthday, which
was in June, and it was also to
welcome him home. We also
celebrated his marriage and then
to also Send him off once again.
See, He is now in Afghanistan.
He will be there for some time.
I already miss the guy and I know
his new wife and daughters miss
him as well. He is such a good man.
It's hard to see that your brother
is over seas but I know why he
does it. He believes in his country.
We are very blessed to have him
in our lives. I wish him the very best
and pray for him and all his military
brother and sisters for a safe journey.
I also want to thank him for what
he does for me, his family, friends,
his country and for you.
Thank you Donny for believing in
your Country. Thank you for being brave.
I love you!!!!
Happy 4th of July to all of you and
I hope your Holiday is a safe one,
blessed with good food,
great family and friends, and
pretty cool fireworks.
