This morning our family spent time talking about Memorial Day and what it means in order that our children will have a better understanding and respect for the brave soldiers, and their families, who not only served in their living, but also willing served through their dying in all too many cases.

To all who are making the sacrifice today, we thank you. For those of you who have lost a loved one in the line of duty and honor, our prayers are with you.

Our thoughts are especially with my mom today as this is her first Memorial Day since my step-dad, Roy Clark, passed away. Though Roy wasn't killed while fighting for our country, he spent the majority of his life in the military and was both wounded and imprisoned during military conflict. He was an active soldier during WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. We are grateful to him for all he did and miss him. He was a true American hero.
