In a few weeks we will begin our 3,000 mile drive to Oklahoma to see our young soldier graduate. And although we are driving to keep costs down we still are struggling to come up with the funds needed to make the trip. We were making good progress but unfortunately we ended up with vehicle problems costing us many hundreds of dollars. We are desperately trying to sell everything we can to make up the difference, but are falling terribly short.
Our son wants to do his part to protect his country and we want to support him by being there for him (especially because he will not be coming home after graduation), but we desperately need help. Any assistance would be so greatly appriciated.
For those who have helped us, thank you so very much for your generosity. I continue to offer all of you up during mass asking the Lord to bless you all.
May the Lord bless you all. Your Brother in Christ,
PS: If you feel the need to criticize us (as a few people have done) PLEASE do not email us. Words truly do hurt, and a few uncharitable emails we received really brought us down at a time when we are already hurting. Please remember that we are Christians and were all taught that we will be judged for every idle word we say (and write).
