Veteran’s Day

November 11th, 2014 ·No Comments

My father used to put out the flags on Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day for soldiers in the cemetery. The First World War ended November 11, 1918. He was born November 12, 1918 and his middle name was Pershing. believe grandmother had the Spanish Flu when he was born. I do remember people saying she was very ill.

That was 96 years ago. He died in 2000. It seems like yesterday.

My sadness at Shane’s passing has struck at chord deep in me and it resonates with the slightest wisp of thought. I hear bagpipes playing on the TV in the other room; it seems appropriate for both topics mentioned here.
