CODY FROM NEWNAN
Posted By: MARCIA GWALTNEY 10-08-10
My grandson left 8/30/10 for Parris Island, MCRD. I cried for 2 wks. b4 he left and cried until I received the phone call from him that he had arrived. The phone call was short and abrupt which was so unlike him that I had to laugh. The first letter was only about 4-5 lines. The second letter was a little better and third letter he seemed a little more relaxed. Each letter he reveals a little more and I can already tell he has really matured. Like it is said… He left a teenager and I know is coming home a young man. Graduation Day is Nov.24, 2010, the day b4 Thanksgiving. I can hardly wait! Our best Thanksgiving ever!!!!!
