My little bro. is coming home from his mission, in 2 1/2 weeks. I'm so excited it will be so fun. I'm right out gitty about it. I can't wait for Nov. 4th to come. He is such a huge part of our family, for 2 years, 2 of our family members have been gone fulfilling there missions, when my mom left it felt extra empty cause Casey was still on his mission. My two sisters are great but not enough (sorry girls I know you feel the same way, love you) So to have Casey come home will be so nice it will be one more person to lean on when times are hard and he can lean on all of us. Siblings are so great. If you think about it we are with Siblings the longest, our parents die before us, we die before our children, we don't meet our husbands untill we are older. Our siblings are born around the same time we are and they hopefully grow old with us. I love all my Siblings. So I thought I would list some of the reasons I love Casey so much and what makes him so great.
1. His laugh is infectious
2. He is so funny, and has the greatest since of humor.
3. He loves the simpsons, I miss hearing him laugh at the T.V. in the other room. ha
4.He plays the piano beatifully
5. He is so responsible
6. He is so mature and always has been, he is a very old spirit
7, Casey always knows what to say when I'm upset, to help me with a problem.
8. He is very sensitive, he loved and loves my mom and was and is the perfect son in every way.
9. All of his nieces and nephews love him to death, because they know he loves them.
10. Casey is a wonderful missionary, he has done so many wonderful things on his mission. He has worked hard the served the Lord well. And he kept serving his mission even when he new his mom was going to pass away. He is the strongest person I know. I love him!!

I love to see your family pictures! SO happy it is time for Casey to come home. I bet he is ready to see his sisters as well. I love your favorites about him.

I am so excited that he is coming home too!! That is so great for your family. I served with a few missionaries that had members of their immediate family die. They stayed and were absolutely amazing missionaries and touched many lives because they could truly testify of eternal families and our belief in the plan of salvation. I believe Casey did the same. Keep us updated.

I still picture him as a little boy. I haven't seen him since we were in High School. He is such a cute grown up. Wow time sure flies. He must be one strong kid to have stayed and served throughout the last couple years. I'm sure he will be forever blessed for that. I am so excited you finally get to see him again!

Our family will feel a bit more complete, I agree with ya jen the sista's just aren't enough Thank goodness for casey we need some more testosterone in the family. Love you.

I can't wait either. I got to know Casey really well when we would go down and stay with them for the marathons. He is a special guy and it will be nice for him to be back with you.
