Bear's "official" JR. ROTC school photo...


Yesterday he earned his next higher rank, he is now a "Cadet Airman".

So, my diva of a granddaughter, Adriana...


who's 3 1/2 calls me today kind of upset.
Apparently she had a little "dream/visit" from her Grammpa last night. :)

First she told me that she was very sad because in her words "I should have never let Grammpa's hand go".

When I asked her what happened she said...

"Gramma I was running around outside under a rainbow and I saw Grammpa and he was holding my hand. He played with me and he told me that he loves me very much and that he is in a better place now with his other family but he will always be with me"

Yea, I was like "WOW".

Then I asked her what Grammpa looked like and her words were...

"He was beautiful he looked like a Prince".

That make me laugh a little.

So I asked her why she was so sad? And she said "Because I let go of his hand and he went away, I should have never let go".

Just a little girls dream of a Grammpa she misses dearly?
I don't think so. :)

Wow, what a wonderful picture of Kody! What a handsome young man he is! Be proud Mom! I do believe your granddaughter had a very special visit from her Grandpa! What a lucky little girl she is! It broke my heart when I read, she shouldn't have let his hand go!! Glad you are getting visits from Karl, amazing!!

Kody looks so handsome!! Very sweet dream adrianna had! When my mom died my 4 year old son was very close to her and he had dreams like that all of the time. He would tell me about them and I would be stunned! It took about a year and then I started having them too.

Can't believe how grown up Kody looks! And I love Adri's phone call! Not that a child should feel bad about letting go of her Grandpa's hand, but WOW - what a story! Thanks for sharing!

Wow, I can't believe how big and how handsome that son of yours is. And Adriana? What a little sweetie pie she is. I am sure Grammpa will be back many more times to hold her hand, she need not worry about that.

Love the pic of Kody! He's so handsome!Thanks for sharing all the stories of Karl's contacts. I completely believe they are real! I experienced one myself shortly after my friend's 5 yr. old son passed away from leukemia. He stood next to my bed & talked to me. I first thought it was a dream, but it was too real. Love, Hugs & Prayers to you all!
