Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend celebrations

Memorial Day offers a moment to gather together, as a united nation, to give thanks for the blessed life we enjoy, in tribute to the men and women who bravely fought for the freedoms many of us now take for granted. On this day, I lament those that passed away, many of them far too young; including my dad and beloved uncles, who served during World War II. I also give thanks to living relatives and dear friends, men and women from every branch of service, who have dedicated their lives in every capacity imaginable to protect our country. Special thanks to David, Ray, Caryl, the Gill cousins, and all our dear friends, for your service.

“We must always remember that peace is a fragile thing that needs constant vigilance. “

President Ronald Reagan, 1986, Arlington National Cemetery

Thank you for keeping the peace.

    Very moving Memorial Day photo and words. We honour your fallen, too. Your Memorial Day is our Anzac Day – very moving. On the celebration front, looks like you are having a really fun time.

    Cheers Heather
