For Those Who Serve – Thank You!

I’ve always thought that Memorial Day was kind of like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  Shouldn’t we be honoring those wonderful people every day?   

Since Memorial Day is right around the corner, I want to say ‘Thank You’ to all those valiant men and women – past and present – who have sacrificed and served our great nation for a job well done. 

My Dad was in the Coast Guard during World War II.  He was a kind and gentle man that served with honor and carried that honor with him always (1910 – 1983).

Thanks Dad . . . . for everything!

    BEAUTIFUL!!! And he raised a fabulous daughter as one of his many accomplishments. He truly was a marvelous man. I remember him as so very kind, and always smiling. Thank you for this wonderful reminder of all our veterans.

    I also remember Uncle Howard’s warm, gentle ways. He had a great laugh. I am glad he was my uncle and is part of my memories. It is part of my memories that he was an honourable man and a patriot who served his country well.

    I remember from when I was a… as you’d say in the country… “lil feller” going to visit Paw-Paw and Mommo. Those were some of the happiest times of my life.

    Root – Those were some of my happiest times as well. I know for a fact there wasn’t a day that passed that Paw-Paw and Mommo didn’t think of you with love and pride in their hearts. Mom
