  • This Memorial Day

    Today while you're enjoying your picnics please take a brief pause and thank all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we could enjoy our picnics and parades or whatever it is that you do today. My family was relatively fortunate in that my 3 brothers and I were all unscathed. My grandmother was not as fortunate as she was the first gold star mother of my hometown in WWI.

      I would like to remember my brother Samuel S. Walker, USAF, A-10 pilot. Lost his life in defense of his country.

      Also, all the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the rest of us to enjoy the freedom we have.

        Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American G.I. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom. Thank them both today.

              Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

              Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time.
