My husband is Sgt. Sean Passey with the 116th, Idaho National Guard out of Preston, Idaho. We live in Bear Lake. We were married September 17th, 2004, and have 7 wonderful children. We were married 6 months when he left for training on March 25th and arrived in Kurkuk, Iraq, April 7th. We hope he comes home in December 2005. Hopefully he will be able to come home on leave in September for our 1st anniversary. Everyday is a battle, but I just keep myself busy on our 10 acre farm of horses, pigs, kitties and our dog Molly. Our kids and their activities, along with working 5 days a week also keeps me busy. Our families are very helpful and supportive, along with our friends, without them I don't know if I would survive. I thank them very much. I get to talk and e-mail him everyday unless the phone lines are down over there and then you go as many as 7 days with no communication. That's when FAITH comes in and you just pray and await for the phone call. I write him 3 or 4 times a week, send packages, and our kids and I are making monthly DVD's of all the things going on at home so he can be a part of it to. There is not one minute that goes by that he's not on my mind. It's 24/7. I am very proud of my husband and lucky to have him in my life. He is my hero, our kid's hero, my life, my every breath, my every heart beat, my best friend. I love him with all of my heart and soul. Our love, desire and determination is what keeps us going. This deployment has made our love and relationship stronger. My prayers are with each and every soldier and family member.
"Sparky"!! Baby, I am so proud to be your wife. I can't wait for you to return home so that we can fullfill our life-long and eternal dreams and goals. Your are what's keeping me going baby. You are in my thoughts and prayers 24/7. You are my HERO baby and I love you more than life itself. Love you, Love your PHWEETY
