  1. Lovely tribute Deborah!

  2. I have used a serious tone for at least 3 Memorial Day posts in a row. Somehow, with the current depressing and dangerous world with so much being disastrous, it seemed to not be where my heart was, Deb.
    I definitely appreciate and say prayers for our volunteers in the military who didn’t have to go but put their lives on the line. I honor those who died for us to have freedoms, also. My two charities in this respect are paralyzed vets and wounded warriors, but do give to March of Dimes, too.

  3. Thank you for helping me honor these troops.

  4. My Grandfather Maj John F. Howell is interred in Arlington National Cemetary and this post honors him as well, GP. Thank you.

  5. I start every day with these posts. Excellent choice !
