For some, Memorial Day will never be happy. So I wish you a sincere Memorial Day. Remember those who served and died...men and women like Maj. Gregory Stone, one of my husband's friends who died in the Iraq War. Honor their memory, known and unknown to you, for their commitment, their sacrifice, their love of country.
I know many bloggers will post patriotic cards today, but I'm posting a sympathy card because of a post I read on Facebook. A wife of a fallen soldier (and the mother of a child he never met) wrote about how hard this day is, especially when people wish her a happy Memorial Day. So here's a sympathy card, because every one of those whose memory we honor today left behind family and friends who personally grieve them.
For those who mourn, a card of comfort.
