These are my hands being presented the flag that covered my beloved. I will remember this exact moment forever.
And this is the day that we pay respect to our soldiers both here and fallen. Especially fallen. This year my heart breaks as he is now among those fallen warriors. He was a hero in every sense of the word and a gentleman and loving husband for 44 years. I miss him with an ache so deep I cannot express it. But you already know that.
Enjoy your holiday weekend please but remember too, won't you?
Freedom is not free.
