I know this may sound cliche----but Im also sure there were many others who were alone----wives,daughters,sons,fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers. I don't know if Memorial day was mean't to be a feel good day. I'm glad you had someone who you could reach out to. My 80 yr old next door neighbor came by my house today. he'd just been to the cemetary where he puts flowers on the graves of his father and buddies who have given the ultimate sacrifice. He even showed me a picture he still kept of his father in his WWl uniform and spoke of his buddies from WWll and Korea. He doesn't like war one bit---and wants all of the soldiers back. he's a salt of the earth old guy and I'm going to miss him when he's gone. He's got lung cancer and is going through chemo----but still works like a horse every day and faithfully raises the American flag on the flagpole in front of his house----he knows........hope you're better in no time. sometimes we all just have bad days.
