It's Memorial Day Weekend. Please remember those who served our country and your ancestors that came before you at your picnics and gatherings. Go for a walk and think about our freedoms. I am going to visit the cemeteries where my family members are buried. Doing a little tidying up of the graves and leaving a few flowers just as a token that I remember. Leaving flowers are for the living. The ideals that our departed loved ones left us are to be memorialized.
Memorial Day, Decoration Day, as they used to call it, was a big deal when I was growing up. Mom and my Aunt Elizabeth would have many discussions, weeks in advance, on what flowers should be purchased that particular year and which cemeteries each one would do. I love that memory! Have a good one!
