Sharing a special moment

Posted Saturday, October 29, 2011, at 8:36 PM

I'm sharing this with all of new friends and family in Mtn. Home. These are from the military funeral for my Mother that was held 10/28/2011. I will forever be grateful for the two gentlemen from the Navy who volunteered to honor my Mother.

This is the  Committal  Shelter where services are held for our Veterans. I finally felt at peace. The table is used for cremations.

I have no words to describe the emotion I felt when I read the plaque. To the members of Post 26, my undying gratitude.

The picture on the top is my son, me, my brother Fred, and my Grandson Christian. My daughter-in-law took the picture. The next picture my grandson took.

   This is all hallowed ground.

 

   God bless our veterans living and dead.

Oh my gosh, I am reading this now on my laptop, and when I made that comment before, I was on my "Droid Smart Phone" I meant HONORED, and it was so smart it changed it to hunkered.... I'm mortified! Roy, I would NEVER have written that in my life. That will teach me to Proofread.

Yes, she was mortified so I have made it all better. Sorry had not been on this morning. My "smart" phone has made me look pretty dumb a few times. Peace in your heart Roy. B

Thank you. We all salute your mother and her service to our country.

Thank You Roy for sharing with us. Pat was the commander of post 26 for 2 years in a row. He is on the Honor Guard and has handed out many flags.

He's done 2 funerals this week and so far has one next week. He never gets tired of being there for a fallen vet.......

The Veterans Cemetery is where he wants to be when its his time.
