Happy Memorial Day

Today we are celebrating Memorial Day, a day set aside to remember the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

In Loving Memory
On every soldier’s tombstone
should be a message of honor, respect and love:
"In loving memory
of one who loved his country,
who fought against evil
to preserve what is right and true and good.
In loving memory
of one who is a cut above the rest of us,
who had the surpassing courage,
the uncommon strength,
to do whatever had to be done,
persevering through hardship and pain.
In loving memory
of one who was brave enough
to give his life, his all,
so that those he cared about
would remain safe and free.
In loving memory
of a unique and treasured soldier
who will never be forgotten."
By Joanna Fuchs

Memorial Day is also the "unofficial" start of the Summer!!!  Together with our pals Gracie and Sammy, we are hosting a Memorial Day Cookout!!

What a fantastic and fun video, and this pawty is pawsome. Thanks for inviting us. Mom also thinks that your Memorial Day tribute was very special. Mau is really missing Scouts, but all the celebrations this weekend are keeping him from complaining too much. He's sending oodles of nose-kisses and hugs to Allie.
