Thanks so much for remembering my Mom today...you know how special she is to me.
Thanks for your kindness.
Memorial Day 2012
"From the president of the United States and grateful Nation."
I remember the words so clearly as they handed my Mother the flag. I had never heard those words before that. As I stood there on that cold November Day, thoughts came swirling in my head. I flashed back to my fathers entire demeanor. How he organized his clothing drawers were. How he lived with honor, how military he was. How he had wanted to be in the National Cemetery and I was so against it.
It was like it was all coming together in my head, I was seeing experiences known only to those understanding military tradition.
He was part of this white sea of headstones belonging to the men and women who valiantly defended our nation. His military back bone had always been there.
He served as a Chaplin ministering to Vets at the Minneapolis Veterans Hospital for years. He was on the honor guard for awhile. He gave blood routinely as he was AB negative, the rarest blood type in the world. Many nights he would get a 2 am call and out the door he would go to give blood because someone was in need. It took me years to understand what a military man is. He lived our nation and preserving it's goodness my entire life.
Memorial Day means so many different things to our society. The start of summer, picnics, it is the official end of winter where I live.
To veterans it is a time of reflection, of their courage, sacrifices, pride and loss. My son has lost 2 friends to the Iraq war, and another that came back severely injured and is struggling with his injuries and each day is a gift as those days are slipping away from him.
Memorial Day we bring into memory those that have fought for our freedom. I would like to thank you, for your Father, Son, daughter, husband, ancestor, or maybe even you, for the scarifies your families have endured to keep America out of harms way.
That as we begin Memorial Day 2012 our families remain strong and we are enduring together what our nation is all about....
"First in WAR ... First in PEACE ... and First in the HEARTS of his countrymen."

"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures."
I am conscious of my heart today because you have blessed me with kind words, something I will treasure. Sometimes thank you seems so inadequate to say but I want you to know how much I appreciate what you wrote me.

I can't thank you enough for sponsoring Samatha's memorail. She is the cousin of a fellow work mate and friend of mine. What a wonderful friend you are. Take care..~
|Robert Duran ~||Elisa,|
Sorry it takes a few days to answer sometimes. It is a pleasure to visit your daughters memorials. I lost my daughter and my brother one year apart, both to suicide. That thought will never leave my mind. You have gone through so much losing two daughters, both at a very young age. I can't imagine the pain you indure by this. Anytime you need a friend, i will always be here. Take care..~ Broncos next year, I hope.
