Albany- A light shines brightly on a patriotic display Patricia Johnson built by hand to remember her son in her front yard.
Patricia says, "I'm very proud of him. I wish he was home." Johnson says when she sees pictures of her son each day, the tears come rushing to her eyes. She adds, "It's hard. I know I'm not the only one going through it."
The feelings of sadness she feels are only made better because of her husband Samuel's support. He served in the military for more than thirty years. Samuel says, "He says now I realize what you went through."
Because of their military connection, Samuel never stops praying. He adds, "I was sitting on the back porch drinking a couple of coffee and the Lord impressed on me to pray for my son."
He says minutes later his prayers were answered with a long-awaited phone call. Samuel adds, "It was a great feeling. God answers prayers."
As Patricia reads each line of every letter Joseph sends, she receives reassurance her baby boy is doing just fine. She says, "In every letter, he says he loves us and he can't wait to come home."
Patricia and Samuel say this light in her front yard will continue to shine brightly, lighting the way for Joseph's return, something they say the family dog, Cody, can't wait for.
Patricia Johnson says her son wants to receive letters from South Georgians. Joseph Johnson's address is:
PFC Joseph Prevatt Johnson COLT PLT/C/1 CAV 1st Brigade 3ID Camp Pennsylvania Unit #93113 APO AE 09303-3113
