He's in Our Prayers!

Robert (Chief Taylor) left this week for Iraq. He will be gone for about 7 months. It was hard saying goodbye. The kids and us said our goodbyes the night before and the 3 kids spent the night at our house. Erika drove Robert to the base in the early hours. She was allowed to stay with him for about an hour before he and the other soldiers formed up to leave. Saying goodbye was really difficult.
Our prayers will be with Robert while he is gone.

We went to dinner together at Robert's favorite mexican restaurant in Ojai.

This must be so hard for Erika and your grandchildren. Our prayers are with him that he will have an uneventful 7 months and return home safely.

We will pray for his safe and quick return! I can't tell you how much I admire people who can do that for the rest of us and for the families that make that sacrifice!
