Growing up in a family that honored our country, Memorial Day is more than just any three-day weekend. With a father who served in the Korean War, cousins and a brother-in-law who served in the Air Force, Marines, and Army, and a brother in the Navy, not to mention friends in the varies branches of service, my heart is full of pride for each one and full of respect for our country.
But, on this weekend, we remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. I’m honored and saddened to say my brother is one of those individuals who was laid to rest at Arlington Cemetery last year. As a Chaplain and man of God, I can only imagine how he is rejoicing in Heaven.
As we remember, not only or service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice, but all of our loved ones who are no longer with us, let us smile and imagine what it will be like when we join them in Heaven.
