Wordless Wednesday - In Remembrance and Honor

November 11
Veterans Day
In Honor of all who served

I could list all my family that has fought but today I wanted to share a photograph of Grandpa Shenanigans... A few days ago he was admitted to the ICU and we are thousands of miles away... A braver more gentle soul I have not known... We Love you...


These are some veterans that DH had the honor of escorting around last year..




"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

and to my husband that still protects us to this day... We Love You...
