Memorial Day....

Visiting this place yesterday was one of the most emotional
experiences, outside of my Mother's funeral, that I've
ever experienced!  There was something from the moment
that we drove into the entrance that just came over me....

 Maybe it was the sight of our beautiful Flag waving in the wind ....

 So proudly Welcoming you in to experience the beauty....

 or maybe it was the sight of 
row after row of smaller, yet just as compelling smaller
flags waving in the wind at each and every grave....

 section after section
paying tribute to those that gave up
their lives for us and/or spouses who also
paid a price....


 Profoundly sad....
and yet so very Proud....

To have this Flag waving 
not only today, but everyday!

If you've never had a chance to visit a place like this
I highly recommend the experience.

Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend!
