Daddy, I miss you and haven’t heard from you. I know you told me you were going away to Afghanistan for a year, and that you would let me know you are okay. Daddy why won’t Mommy let me talk to? Daddy when are you coming home? Love, Logan
2008 Logan, I’m here in Afghanistan. I know that I am making a difference by volunteering to serve here. I love you very much and am sad to have lost this year with you. My wish is that just one morale call go through and that your Mom answers her phone so that you know that I am okay. Love , Dad
2009 Christmas Logan, I waited all year . I traveled 14 hours to see you. This year was supposed to be mine to spend Christmas with you. I’m sorry you think I don’t love you. I’m sorry that I was only allowed to see you for five hours. Love, Dad
A year lost 2010 I called every day hoping to hear your voice. This year I missed your birthday. I even missed every major holiday. I have missed every ballgame. I don’t know how much longer I can hold myself together. Knowing that my son is lost without me and that I am lost without him.
March 2010 Logan, I can’t believe this is real. I am seeing you with my own eyes. I haven’t seen you in 15 months, 450 days, 10, 800 hours.

Grandma will be here this Thanksgiving. All your friends will be here too. There will be an empty chair waiting just for you. Oh, how we wish that you were coming home soon.
If you have seen my son. Won’t you tell how much I love him? How much I miss him. How much I want to kiss him and hold him close. And that I would give the world to be able to share mine with his.
