When I completed my tour in Guam, I chose an assignment close to home so we could spend time with my Dad. We lived with Dad for about a year and we saw great change with his health, he got so energetic again. My sister Crystal told us when we arrived that Dad wasn't doing well when my Mom died but when lived there he changed. I thought that they would just let me stay until I retire but I was wrong. We're relocated again here which is far from Dad and I feel bad that I have to be away from him now that he is old. It's hard to be elderly in the States, they felt so alone because their kids have their own family. That is why even if we bought a house there, we see to it that we visit him everyday after I go home from work, makes him happy seeing our children. But now every time we call him on the phone, he always say things like he might not make it till we go back there. Getting us worried here. I hope and pray that we could still make up the time with him.
