Memorial Day

Memorial Day. The day we remember and honor those who died while serving while in the United States Armed Forces.

This is my grandma and grandpa on their wedding day. Grandpa served in World War II.

Fortunately, grandpa made it back from war to raise five children with grandma. He lived a long and happy life until he passed away a few days before his 90th birthday. He was one of the most beautiful souls I have ever known.

This makes me appreciate the meaning behind Memorial Day even more. To those who have served our country and their families who supported them while they were away – thank you. And to the families of those who were lost while serving – thank you.
