Today is the first anniversary of Mema's death. Her homecoming was to Heaven to be with her Lord, Jesus.
Mrs. Jim's mother died last year, one month before her 90th birthday. We are missing her a lot.
Some posts with Mema
The second is another kind of homecoming. It is of our nephew, Master Sergeant Phil. He has been deployed to Afghanistan for almost six months. We have been missing him a lot also and are really glad he is coming home to us now.
Mema, above, is pictured with Phil's two children. Wouldn't we like to be there and see these smiles when their Dad deplanes.

I so understand that you're missing your Mema.
The price of love is missing and sorrow.
I guess we are both willing to pay that price having been allowed to share so much good.
I'm so proud of all our servicemen and women.
I am inspired by people such as Phil.
I bet all his loved ones are counting the days until his return home!! God bless those kids of his!!! They have a dad to be VERY proud of!!!!
Those children must be so excited to be reunited soon with their dad!
You have shown the happy and sad side of homecomings in this post. I am sure Meme is missed, and happy that Phil is returning.
Please tell Phil "Thank you" for us.
