Remembering the Welcome Home

One year ago today, Casey was riding in an airplane (he thinks probably Delta).  He was wearing his black name tag for the last time after two years of daily use.  He was sad to be leaving the people he had learned to love so deeply.  His whole life, as he had come to know it, changed drastically (but only for the better) when he was released from serving in the Virginia Richmond Mission and became an RM.

Since very few pictures have ever been posted from his mission, I decided I would pick some of my favorite to share... (be warned, missionaries take lots of pictures!!  I am trying to pick only a select few but I have a feeling there will be a lot...)
