Memorial Day

Randy's Dad served in the United States Air Force for 26 years. He died a year ago and we miss him. His wife of 65 years misses him terribly.

Tyler wrote this on Facebook today and I asked him if I could post it on my blog.

Tyler Thompson- Thank you to all the men and woman who bravely serve, and have served our country and paid the ultimate price. My papaw was a man who proudly made a career serving his country in the United States Air Force. His passion for the military and the steadfast love he showed his family throughout his life will forever be a reminder of how possible it is to remain a family man, a military man, and most of all a Godly man.

Wow, that will be my prayer for him... that he would settle for nothing less than that... as he enters the military in January.

Tyler wanted to put some American flags at his Papaw's place. So we did. And we miss him even more now.

Let us never forget those who have made the supreme sacrifice for our freedom.

Loved this post Linda. It was very special.
I've been away awhile and just caught up with your trip to UK. What wonderful posts! I enjoyed them thoroughly and felt like I was right there! : ) My daughter and I are hoping to get to Ireland next year and reading your posts made me even more excited! Take care and stay cool down there! : )
