Making Memorial Day Meaningful

Felix and I were married on May 30th, 1970, traditional Memorial Day, so that we would never forget the sacrifices of those who do, and have, served our country.

These are pictures of Matthew, his wife, Bella, and her son, Giovanni, who at three, was pleased to help Matthew's veteran father celebrate a visit to an Army Tank exhibit in Epsom, New Hampshire.

It was a wonderful family outing that they shared with us in pictures.

Neither Felix nor I have had the privilege of serving in any of the armed services, but we are very grateful for those who do serve and have served. Thank you!

On Friday, May 27th, we did go out to eat and had a great time.

We are free to celebrate because of those servicemen and women and if we could do it all over again, we would do it just the same.

Happy quilting!

Those that died for our country do indeed need remembering. Teaching the young to honor their sacrifice is indeed a wonderful thing.

Happy Anniversary. And I hope all of us will always remember the sacrifices our soldiers have made for us. My father was more proud of his military service than anything else in his life.
