It’s strange to think that someone I love so dearly someone who’s voice is gone but not forgotten. Someone who was there for me when I needed them most and even when I didn’t. Someone who I think about everyday and ask for guidance hoping they can lead me in the right direction by divine intervention. Someone that isn’t going to get to meet my children someday or my childrens children. She can’t say Happy Birthday or Merry Christmas. She can’t wake me in the middle of the night to watch sci fi channel and play poker. And most of all she can’t say I love you anymore. Even though I know she does with all of her being. I miss you everyday I think about you all the time and I will forever be greatful that you were a part of my life and everyone else’s.

I love you Grandma,

Ed

Turns out, the United States Marine Corps has an *~amazing~* Flickr page. (Seriously, check it out.) We stumbled across it recently, and we’ve been obsessed ever since.

In addition to stunning photography, they do a great job representing women as powerfully as men, and offer a no-nonsense look at the life of Marines. There are also some really cool shots of the technology they use, and some charming pics of things like doggies and teary homecomings.
