  1. Hi Sharon - every family has someone to remember from those ghastly two world wars - perhaps necessary ones ... recent wars I'm not so sure ... but we need to salute all who serve, and their families and remember all who died serving ... thank you - Hilary

  2. A wonderful Rememberance post Sharon. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  3. Some families are heavily into the military, to which we should all be forever grateful for their service. My family had an uncle in the Korean war, but that's all I can think of who served during wartime. This was a lovely remembrance of your brave relatives.

  4. Lovely post, Sharon! We have many, many wonderful veterans in our family and I'm so grateful to each and every one for their service.

  5. Thank you Sharon, and may their lives lost not be in vain.

  6. My goodness, there are quite a few in your family who have served their country. You must be proud


"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary
