I just arrived back home from a family cookout. (The food was off the hook!) Looking around at the crowd I realized what a close-knit family we have despite ups and downs, disagreements and squabbles. I also felt the void of family members missing this year and years passed so on this Memorial Day I'd like to remember the following loved ones:
Purcell Jefferson, Sr. - paternal grandfather,
Thomas Anderson - maternal grandfather,
Margaret Jefferson - paternal grandmother,
Rebecca Anderson - maternal grandmother,
Samuel Jefferson - uncle,
Regina Harris - cousin,
Sarah Williams - great aunt,
AND each of the 4,081 US servicemen and women who have lost their lives during the current war.
Everyday each of them are missed tremendously. RIP!
