Happy Fourth of July everyone (those that celebrate it). It was always a big day in our house, and we usually had a party/BBQ. Jerry loved history, politics, and most of all America. We voted in every election - even local school board - when I didn't pay attention to the issues or the people running, Jerry insisted that I pay attention - he wanted us to participate in voting, and felt that was very important. . He watched war movies and shows on history. He had patriotic ties, shirts, and even an Uncle Sam hat that he wore for his last birthday - 62 - his celebration of receiving Social Security. We both came from immigrant families. We both have stories of our families coming to America, not speaking English, and struggling to raise families and succeed. For those of you who have served our Country - thank you. For those of you who honor America today just by remembering all that others sacrificed for us - thank you. We are all lucky to have a Country where we can express our beliefs, and enjoy freedom. I for one am grateful.
