Memories on Memorial Day
May 25, 2009 8:14am CST
Today I am thinking of family members who are no longer with us and remember all of the wonderful memories of them. Both my parents are gone and I miss both of them very much. I don't just think of them today but often throughout the year. Aunts and Uncles are gone as well and also a few dear friends. I think it best to remember all of joy and happiness they brought into my life. Do you have someone special you are remembering today?

My grandfather fought in the battle of the Argonne Forest in Germany in WWI. He suffered all his life from the effects of the mustard gasses used and there was a sadness to him that never quite left his eyes even when he was laughing and having a good time. I will always be grateful to our veterans and our military, and their families. Their families suffer the most and I thank them for their sacrifices.
