good-bye Virginia friends...

a few of our good-bye pics...
even though this song is kinda dorky... its so true... we have some very very special friends that will forever be in our hearts...

Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
I can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter of your life is through
B will miss his auntie kk
 But we'll keep you close as always 
It won't even seem you've gone 
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways 
Will keep the love that keeps us strong 
b & nanny, beach buddies
 And friends are friends forever 
If the Lord's the Lord of them 
And a friend will not say never 
'Cause the welcome will not end 
Though it's hard to let you go 
In the Father's hands we know 
That a lifetime's not too long 
To live as friends 
our little family with Meema...
we will miss her SO much!
 And with the faith and love God's given 
Springing from the hope we know 
We will pray the joy you live in 
Is the strength that now you show 

b & his buddy ty

little cuties
 We'll keep you close as always 
It won't even seem you've gone 
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways 
Will keep the love that keeps us strong 

b's hero

b & his big boy friends 
 And friends are friends forever 
If the Lord's the Lord of them 
And a friend will not say never 
'Cause the welcome will not end 
Though it's hard to let you go 
In the Father's hands we know 
That a lifetime's not too long 
To live as friends 
bye baby olive... you're in our hearts sweet girl

 Though it's hard to let you go 
In the Father's hands we know 
That a lifetime's not too long 
To live as friends

love these girls!
 And friends are friends forever 
If the Lord's the Lord of them 
And a friend will not say never 
'Cause the welcome will not end 
Though it's hard to let you go 
In the Father's hands we know 
That a lifetime's not too long 
To live as friends
