Sharing a special momentPosted 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.

I'm an almost 61 year old transplant from California 6 1/2 years ago. I work in road construction, those dastardly flaggers. My family roots go back to New England farms, not the big city. The last town I lived in when in California grew from 16K to 40K in 10 years, and that was enough to drive me out. I don't engage in or tolerate name calling. Name calling reduces an adult discussion to grade school play yard level. I have never served in the military, but have family members who have, dating back to WW1. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am neither extremely Liberal or Conservative. I am raising my 16 year old grandson, not what I expected at this age, and dealing with those issues as well as my health and near retirement which are 2 things I intend to talk about. I decided to try my hand at this thanks to the warm welcome I have received on Mike's blog. When I take a position, I will defend it until I am shown that I am mistaken, and when that happens, I apologize. There are other things about me that will come out over time I'm sure.
