Gillam Family Memories

I can't even start to recount all the good times with the Gillam family,
so I will just say,

You will be missed!

I won't lie - in gathering up these photos the last two weeks, I cried.
The cry that my friend Heather calls the "UGLY CRY"
Not just where tears come, but the kind of crying that comes with sound.

But on our last day together,
I will put on my big girl panties and smile.
That's how we Navy wives roll.

  1. Oh- so many thoughts with all these photos! (ps, Michael is in the Halloween one- just camouflaged in the back!) What a nice "good-bye" blog- Love you Thorntons! Guam would have just been a frustrating tropical island without you....... you made it more like home..... can't wait to see you next summer :) Never thought I would be so sad to leave Guam..... hug the boys and love on Mia for me every once in awhile :(
