Dilene, sorry I haven't written back. I am trying to stay in the SW side of Austin. It is so hard to find a place to live right now. Everything is so expensive. I am trying to move closer to work but not having much luck. I may just have to stay here. It is a nice house just too big for one person.I have received one call from T about two weeks ago on a Friday. Haven't heard from him since but he does have a calling card. I don't know when he got it because I didn't buy it for him. He does have his debit card with him so maybe he can buy them in the store on base. He said in his last letter that he could call again the 7th week. Hope you have a wonderful Mothers Day!
I hope you have a wonderful time with your son. I bet your husband will be glad he went. I have heard it is a great experience. I hope you see my son, it will be good for him to see a familar face. I am so sad about not being able to go. I am moving the end of May. I don't look forward to it but at least I will be able to keep my mind off of what I am missing. Maybe he can call me after PIR. I hope you don't get sick so you can go!! Have you had a phone call from him since the two minute call the night they arrived?
Thank you for your kind words about my son. He is a wonderful young man and I am very proud of him. I know you must be proud of your son too! I want to thank you for being with Travis as he left for the airplane. I had to drop him off at the recruiter station in Austin. It was such a hard thing to do. I actually made it out the door without crying. It makes me feel so good to know he was with your son. Is your son a grad n go? I am not going to make it to graduation. I am not happy about it but Travis said I would only see him for a couple of hours. Let me know if you hear anything from your son.

Yes, I live in Austin. Travis told me about someone that he met in SA and travelled to GL with him. He said that you bought him a burger before he left on the plane. I asked if he was in his div and he said yes. How wonderful to find someone close that is in his div!! How is your son doing?
