Rhonda & Jay’s Kids ~ Come Home Soon

It had been 3 months since Sgt. Jay Wilhelm left for Iraq when I saw his wife Rhonda a second time. Only days before our first meeting in April, she got a hold of me and we did the couple’s first session as part of Operation: Love Reunited for families of active military serving overseas.

Rhonda said he was working as long as 14 hours a day. But they’ve been able to connect online nearly every day.

He is my husband, and my everything, she stated. And that is why she wanted to surprise him with photos of ALL their kids compiled in an album he received from me just recently at his Iraq address. Rhonda had gathered together the kids living with her and the ones living in Kansas City in late July. There were 7 kids at Lake Storey Park in Galesburg, ranging from 3 to 16, decked out in red, white and blue, and waving American flags. It was a day at the park to showcase a great summer day, and to give Jay one more reason – 8 more reasons – why he is so loved and missed.
