what next?

As if hearing that your husband isn't coming back as expected was bad enough, I just finished calling half of the spouses in Allen's company. So not fun being the bearer of bad news. Though more than half of the wives already knew or at least knew of the possibility, confirming the news was not good. I have heard too many people crying on the phone tonight. The one wife who just sobbed with the news cut through me. Others were completely strong, or at least until they got off the phone. We can only be strong for so long. We should only have to be strong for so long. A year was already far too long to be gone. More is just too, too much.

Goodnight.

I'm so sorry Angie. It is never easy being the bearer of bad news because you have to be strong when all you want to do is cry too.

My heart is with you Angie. I'm truly sorry that you, Ashlyn and Allen are going through this. Our prayers have been with you throughout the past year and will continue to be.

I am so upset for you and all the other people affected by this. I am going to write to the address Jamie is supplying. It is too much to ask. Way too much. I cannot imagine what you must be feeling right now...

Angie,
I am so sorry! I was logging on to check your countdown ticker and I am just shocked! My heart breaks for you. I cannot even imagine the pain and disappointment you are experiencing. Please know that we love you guys and are praying for Allen's quick and safe return. I just cannot believe this.
