No words can describe the pain in my heart
Posted By: michelle sammons 09-13-11
My son Tyler left Monday September 5th, headed to Louisville Ky. He took my heart with him, when I left the recruiters office my heart ripped out of my chest. I cried for hours until I cried myself to sleep. He text me from the Hotel the next morning and headed to Parris Island at 12:00 pm September 6th. I couldnt wait to get that first phone call thinking it would make it easier, Wrong at 2:06 am my phone rang and that call was so heart wrenching, my son will become a better person and I am SO PROUD of him, but he is my baby and my heart is broken. I cannot wait to get an address to write him and the first letter from him!!! Does anyone know if we are allowed to send paper, stamps, and envelopes?
