I'd like to ask for some prayers.  My cousin's son is in the Army 1-1/2 years.  He was just sent over to Iraq.  His mom is devasted.  We're asking for prayers for his safety from everyone we know.
 
This young man enlisted after college.  He had been involved in a local drum and bugle corps for what seems like ages.  He was marching with their drum and bugle corps with his dad on Memorial Day about 4 years ago when his dad (my cousin, 52 years old) died of a massive heart attack.  Paramedics were there instantly but he could not be revived.
 
Now his mother (my cousin's wife) sends her only son to Iraq.  I cannot imagine the fear in her heart.  His 23rd birthday is March 1.  If any of you would like his address please e-mail me.  I know he'd love hearing from us.
 
Thank you in advance for your prayers.  His name is:  Rick.
 
Love and Hugs, Libby 
Friends are God's way of taking really good care of us.

I think it would be fun to send him a package for his birthday and asked Libby for some ideas. I am sure he would enjoy cards or some goodies. By the way he is a medic over there, so he is probably under a lot of stress. Hugs, MK

Libby, you got it! I pray that Rick is watched over and protected and returns home safe and sound. Prayers for his Mom too..L&H, Gail

I will have him included in my prayers.

Love and hugs,

Hi Claramels2,
 
I just happened upon your post and wanted to let you know that he'll be in my prayers too. When two or more come together in prayer, God is with them.......

Libby:
 
I'll definately be praying for Rick, doing that hard, hard job over there.  I, too, anxiously await their return.  Haven't quite got on the card bandwagon yet.  I may be getting some more time soon to do that.  Consider him and his mom prayed for and you also are being prayed for.

Libby, I wish we didn't have to pray for our boys and girls over there. I'd rather they were home here with us enjoying their young lives. That said I will pray for your cousin's son AND for his mom. Sometimes life is so difficult to understand. You're so good, Libby, so kind to others. L&H's, Luci
