Memorial Day


I almost captioned this post "Happy Memorial Day" and then stopped myself.  I know it's a day where people celebrate the start of summer, having the day off from work and getting together with family and friends, but it's more importantly a day to remember those who have given their lives for our country.   (It's kind of like saying "Happy Veteran's Day" when for most  veterans it's a very difficult day.).  
So today is a day I remember someone in my family who gave his life during the 2nd World War, my mother's brother, John.  I've shared his picture here before, but today is the day to do it again.  As the card above says, he is a Hero.

Card Details:  Card created from Artistic Outposts "Heros" set.

Lovely card tribute to your relative and true...I don´t see anything happy about it either....for me it is a somber occasion actually.
