Memorial Day 2007



My Daddy's my Hero ...
He's a Soldier.
U.S. Coast Guard



This is their Daddy.

Their Daddy is my nephew. The twins are my great nieces (almost 2 1/2 years old). Lee is in the Coast Guard. He reports to Hampton, VA on June 5th. Next stop will be to board a boat and go to the waters near Iraq to protect his country for the 2nd time. Please keep him in your prayers for the next year.

Mom and Dad, SJ and all the rest of the family ... haven't they grown?



Kendall (My Dad Rocks t-shirt) is on the left and Zoe (her t-shirt says My Mom Rocks) is on the right. Just when I finally figured out which one was which - their Grandma changed their shirts !! ( Previous picture: Kendall is in yellow and Zoe is in pink).

Memorial Day is not just the beginning of summer, not just the day that the pools open, nor just a day to have a picnic ....

It is a day of Remembrance - of all of those before us (and in the present too) who gave their lives for our country.

God Bless America - Home of the Brave and Land of the Free

The twins are so cute and I'll pray their daddy is kept safe on his next tour of duty. Jenny also looks a cutie.

So, when he comes to Hampton, will his wife and kids come too? I can certainly take them under my wing and show them around.... just let me know. They are as cute as buttons!

Aren't they so cute! My husband's cousin leaves next week for NY and then he has orders to be shipped to Iraq. He's in the army and has a wife and a baby boy due in Septmeber. But, I thank God for people like him and your nephew.
