My family is always looking for an excuse to party. Our parties usually include neighbors and friends, old and new. One of our regular gatherings is during the Super Bowl. Unfortunately this year my oldest son Gabe was unable to attend and root for his team, the Steelers. That didn't stop us from including him in the celebration. This halftime photo was posted on the journal Letters To Gabe that I have been keeping for him since his enlistment in the Army in the fall of 2004, and more recently during his ongoing deployment in Iraq. He may be far away but he is never far from our hearts and thoughts.
We miss you Gabe, be safe, hurry home so we can PARTY!
