A Place to Remember and Be Grateful

Monday marks the annual observance of Memorial Day in the US, a day we remember those who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. While most Americans will spend the day gathering with family and friends to barbecue or picnic, most will also do so with a heart full of gratitude for those who have given their lives so that America can remain a free country.

I realize that many of you may have family and friends who are among those we are memorializing this weekend, those who have given their lives in service to our beautiful country. I want you to know that we are grateful. We don’t take lightly the loss of your sons, daughters, brothers, and sisters. We don’t overlook the loss of your husbands, wives, mothers, and fathers. Even though a simple “thank you” seems so insufficient and incomplete, please accept the thanks from a grateful nation.

We are grateful, and WE REMEMBER.

I have heard it said that the hardest part of losing someone is the fear that people will forget them. I’d love it if you would leave a comment telling us about your dear one. We’d all like to remember with you and say thanks.

“Greater love hath no man than this: that he lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
