After I went by the nursery last week I stopped by a local funeral home. My parents funerals were held there in 1999. Outside is a Veteran's Memorial Garden.
There are many bricks with names on them. I remember when Dad's was first installed. His last name was misspelled. I notified them and it was corrected.
I noticed another familiar name while I was there.
I knew this man for my entire life. All of these folks have families and loved ones they left behind.
As I stood there I looked at many many bricks. I thought of all of the stories they could tell. Times they had while serving their country and protecting our freedom.
I love the flag there. It's so majestic.
I have so much to be thankful for. Especially you Dad. Thanks for you.
