This is the pictures from the first memorail that they did for my husband and Ben (the other marine K.I.A w/my husband) The top picture was taken in iraq and the bottom picture next to the journaling was also taken in iraq the men around him were the brothers in his unit! it took me almost two years to be able to look at the pictures and to sit down and scrap them! the journaling reads: babyboy,even as i scapped this LO it still feels like a horrible dream! you have always been my hero,my bestfriend My soul mate, my everything! i never in a million yrs amagines having to live my life without you! you will always own my heart! when you died a peice of me went with you! i now realize the true meaning of "Freedom Isn't FREE" I can promise you that i will make you proud I will keep your memory alive! I will accomplish everything that I promised you! Be my angel now and watch over me! give our baby a big kiss for me, save me a seat next to you and our son I will one day meet you both up there and always remember YOU ARE MY HERO!
behind the journalin in the pocket is the poem that I wrote for him after he had passed away! way to long to type in this! sorry!
To make the LO i ripped stripps of red paper inked the edges in blue ink...put blue sparkeled paper behind the pics (hoping to look like a flag!) cut out Freedom Isn't FREE and drew strips and stars on it...used the journaling paper and put red white and blue inside each lil hole! TYFL and please never take your freedom for granted because people like my husband have fought and died to make sure you remain to have them!
