May 28 will be a most humbling and sad day for many of us.
It is a time we will remember our loves ones, and all generations, who have passed before us. Likewise, our own mortality, and the certainty of it, will again be imprinted
Referred to as Decoration Day by family when we were growing up, Memorial Day is a United Statesfederal holiday that is observed on the final Monday of May. Originally designated to honor those who lost their lives in military service, it is now a time to remember all who have died.
None of us would be here if it weren’t for mothers.
While that may not seem a profound statement, it is a fact that some seemingly overlook or forget.
Mothers go well beyond bearing and nurturing young. They are usually best friends and the joy of our lives. We can’t envision not having a mother.
