Happy Memorial Day, 2017!

Happy Memorial Day!

May we always remember and never forget those who gave their lives for the freedoms we share and take for granted each and every day.

And may we remember the wives, sweethearts and families who also paid the ultimate price as their loved ones gave so much for us in the service of our country.

They are never forgotten as long as those of us still here remember.

I especially love my facebook newsfeed on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day as the sepia toned and black and white photos of family members from younger days are shared in remembrance. To look into the eyes of those who are no longer with us is a humbling experience.

I’m not just talking about those who lost their lives in wars of long ago. A quilter friend I know posted a photo of her brother, who more recently lost his life in Afghanistan. Memorial Day is not just for those long past, but for those recently gone as well.
