Welcome to RR! we are glad to have you here and I would also like to say that I (and I'm sure everyone here) am very thankful to your husbands service to our country!
As for your question, I would just kindly explain that you love your Lord and Savior and that you long to be home in His presence, free from iniquity, shane, fear and pain. Blessed are those who love the coming of the Lord!
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
1 John 4:16
"And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."
