From Ralph Hipp
Memorial Day 2011. Not just a day off, but a somber day to remember those we have lost who've given their lives so we can enjoy our liberty and freedom today. Not only that, what was Remembrance Day can be a time to reflect on all those who shaped our lives for the better. I am especially remembering my father's mother.. and my mother's father! Grandparents who were close, and are missed. Our immediate and modern day family has not lost someone near and dear to us who gave their lives in battle. I'm sure you may have someone you're remembering today, who gave their lives in service and sacrifice.
Please share a memory about someone close to you who is not far away in your thoughts today. rh
