“Happy Memorial Day” was a strange phrase to hear at first, but then I thought, why not? Aren’t we grateful for our freedoms? Aren’t we grateful that there are still those willing to fight evil in the world; those trying to make the world a better place for people they don’t even know? Aren’t we grateful for those who made the ultimate sacrifice? Yes! This is a day to celebrate what you, and others like you have done for us. This day is about you, Jake and I appreciate this holiday more than I ever have.

Ryan and I visited your grave and then as you can see, it got busier and busier because you are so loved!
