Remembrances

I don't have a lot of words this year for November 11th.

I'd simply like to say that I am eternally grateful that I will (hopefully) not face war. I will (hopefully) be buried on Prince Edward Island.

In addition to my perennial link to Flanders Fields, I invite readers to read the series of postings over on Binky's blog. It sure puts things in perspective.

Veteran's Day has been overshadowed in my life by my mom's death. It's been 8 years today. Fittingly, she is buried in Jefferson Barracks cemetery, alongside my baby brother.

RIP Mom, Craig and all those who share your resting place.

@Binky thanks for that

@Karen My thoughts and prayers are with you. That is a profoundly sad anniversary, indeed. RIP
