Memorial Day

Day is done...
Gone the sun
From the lake...
From the hills...
From the sky.
All is well...
Safely rest
God is nigh.

Fading light....
Dims the sight
And a star....
Gems the sky....
Gleaming bright
From afar....
Drawing nigh
Falls the night.

- Major General Daniel Butterfield

Thank you Grandpa William for Iwo Jima, Thank you Grandpa Al for being a tank destroyer driver in Europe.  Thanks Uncle Raymond for your naval service. Thank you to my great uncle who was shot down in WWII and spent time in a German Prisoner of War camp.  Thank you Dad, for Viet Nam, and Uncle Jim for your service, too!

How blessed we were to have you all return home.  

Thank you to all who served in the armed forces and to those who gave their lives while serving.  We owe you a debt of gratitude.  


  1. Our Country has such a rich heritage in such a short period of time. I, too, am thankful for those who serve.

    Becky K.
