Memorial Day 2009

Yesterday, we went out to Arlington Memory Gardens to visit the graves of several of our family who have gone on.  It was the first time since the funeral that we visited the grave of my wife's sister, Ann Creider.

It was not planned this way but Ann is buried only a few rows from my parents, which makes it convenient on our infrequent trips to the cemetery.

Among the nice things the cemetery does is place the small American flags on the graves of all of the veterans buried there on appropriate holidays.  They also fly the flags of those veterans who left them with the cemetery along the entry way.  My father's flag is one of those.

As it always is on Memorial Day the cemetery was alive with colors, flowers, flags and families.
