Memorial Day, 2016 – Because I could not be there

May 25th, 2016 ·No Comments

This Memorial Day, I could not make it down to the small cemetery in Fountain County, so I asked my cousins to please put flowers on my father’s grave. This morning I received this picture and the following message:

Daddy's grave 2016

Sue and I did this yesterday. We talked to Uncle Bob about memories and told him . . . (how) much you loved him.

Sue will always be to me Susie and the writer of the note is her sister Glenda. Remember the front porch with the swing, the old bandstand in Kingman, the flannel sheets in the bedroom upstairs and Grandma’s portrait of her father in his Union Army uniform watching over us on the wall? I love you both. And thank you so much, so very much.
