Christmas Eve phone call!!
Thought I should let everyone know it was wonderful talking to Tyler on Saturday!! There were seven of us here and we all got to have a turn visiting with him. He sounded like Tyler only with a slightly thicker tongue. He is already having difficulty remembering some English words. He would say something in Spanish and then try to remember the English word he wanted. That was funny. Oliver started fussing when I was holding him and talking so I said to Sam, "Grandpa come get Oliver." Tyler said, "Grandpa," and started laughing. He also got to hear Oliver for the first time. He said he was glad to know that he really existed. He wasn't sure. He was allotted 40 minutes to talk to us. We went over the limit just a little; 1 hour and 45 minutes later we hung up! The call quality was fantastic. There was no delay and he was very easy to hear. Although I miss him terribly, I know that he is where he needs to be at this time of his life and that we as a family have already been greatly blessed for his service. We just love him!
