What a darling little son; I know your husband is proud of him and must miss sharing in his young life. Your husband's service to our country is greatly appreciated. I say, "Thank You", to him and to you for standing at his side in devotion and love. May your husband, your son, and you have a very Merry Christmas. You are loved!
