Memorial Day


A day to reflect and remember those who have lost their lives in the service of our country.  I'm not really sure how anyone ever says Thank You....for giving one's life for their country and fellow citizens.  There is one thing I do know....Memorial Day is a day to reflect and have gratitude for each person who has lost their life in the service of our great country.

While participating in the Memorial Day Parade today in Perrysburg, OH....we made sure our boys knew the meaning of Memorial Day.  The following photos were taken this morning and I thought I'd share them with all of you.









Thank You isn't enough is it?  Often times words don't measure up....this is one of those days.

  1. My hubby and youngest son were just in the parade here. Both my grandfathers were in WWII, one was also in WWI. I have several others that served over the years in my family. Thanks is never enough. We (my hubby and 2 sons) always try to say 'Thank you' to every service member or vet that we see. I also sew for Quilts of Valor. What an honor for me to do so. So little from me for so much from them.

  6. My Dad served in WWII. I gave him a call today to say hello. He has such great memories and wonderful stories about the war years.

  7. Freedom isn't free and we owe so many service people a debt of gratitude. Those are great pictures, I wish our weather had been as nice. We got rain and snow where we were.
