Thank you, Liz, for sharing your direct family memories and for honoring your father and eldest brother. To think that your father was actually a caregiver in the middle of the Battle of the Bulge! Cannot imagine how much "warmth" he brought to his fellow soldiers amid that freezing cold. Blessings to you and to them.
Thank you so much for sharing your remembrance, Tina. How fantastic that your 2nd Great Grandfather lives to 98. Since he was in east Tennessee maybe HE's the guy who shot my great grandpa:-):-) Yes, the passing along of stories and photographs is important on so many levels. Best to you.
Thank you, Janis!
Thanks so much, Anne. Grateful to you.

Terry. I join with Liz in thanking you for sharing this moving story of your walk with Dan. "Goosebumps at attention." marvelous.
I think this is the best writing I have ever read from you. Your beautifully framed beginning sets the stage perfectly: "Strolling without a destination, the day’s invitation was to linger without reason or a purpose, other than gratitude. Sitting idle upon the garden wall was a pair of worn leather boots without companion." You took the lonely boots and made them our companions for a journey through your insights. Thank you.
