Their loving spirits, and amazing bravery, touches our hearts in many beautiful ways :) We're very proud of them all, especially my uncle Ralph Parker Jr, my mom's brother, who served our country in the 1960's. :) We're very proud him, and all the brave men and women, who are forever a big part of family's across the nation, and world, and the freedom of our country and the spirit of freedom, all around the world :) Their spirits, and loving memories live on in the hearts of us all :) We salute them on this very special day, Memorial Day :)
We went for a car ride this afternoon, to Niantic, Connecticut :) it was nice and peaceful :) Niantic, CT is where my mom and dad first lived when they got married in the 60's :) We went to Union Cemetery, and laid flowers on the gravesite of uncle Ralph, and my mom's step-mom, and dad :) They have American Flags on all of the gravesites there, of those who have served our country :) it was nice getting to go there to lay the flowers, and driving around in the area :) we drove past where my mom and dad had their first home :) It was a really nice car ride :)

A very special Memorial Day Salute, to my uncle Ralph :) We went for a car ride today, to Niantic, CT, Union Cemetery, and laid flowers for uncle Ralph, who served our country :) he was in the Vietnam War in the 60's. We like to lay flowers for him, my mom's step-mom, and her dad, around memorial day, and during the holidays too :) Uncle Ralph has an American Flag, near his gravesite :) They put the flags on the gravesites each year, during memorial day holiday weekend :)
