P.S. I don't when you will read this but as of today, the 21th, I have yet to pick up a shovel! The weather guys had it all wrong. One day it will come but December is almost over with.
|Richard S. Barzelogna||Merry Christmas!|
Wishing you a joyous and blessed Christmas! May it bring you the fulfillment of all your wishes.
thank you for the sweet message and flowers and you're very welcome, though thanks are never necessary. I hope it brings you some comfort and does your heart good to know that you are thought of and your precious son is remembered.
Wishing you & yours a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

It has beeen a while since I have been here, I want you to know that I am thinking of you and giving you a big huge hug.
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."

|Richard S. Barzelogna||You're Welcome|
Over the 31+ years I have put in uniform, I've lost several young men and women during service. Every time one of them died, part of me died with them, and even after all those blows, all that pain, I can't come close to being able to truthfully state that I have suffered a blow as great as yours. God bless you and be with you through the day that God sees fit to reunite you with your beloved son in His Kingdom.
