 It was also very difficult for his mother, but she understood that the heartache was justified and fully supported Christian's greater ambition for him.

  "They gave you a lot and tried to tear you down," he continued. "They're trying to break me." "And all this, on top of homesickness, was really hard," said the speaker.

 His mother also went through difficult times, but she was able to see why her son was going through so much pain, and she was totally on board with his ambitious goals.

 "So he was just up for it and wanted to fly as many of those planes as possible," she says.

Every day, Michel would write a letter to Christian, and he would answer it when he found time on his schedule.

 Christian and his mother maintained their communication while away at school in Texas by adopting the pen-and-paper method of writing letters to each other.
