Memorial Day

This year on Memorial Day we all jumped in the car and headed across the valley to visit my grandpa's grave. He is buried in the Mesa City Cemetery. It was a nice, sunny, peaceful day to remember loved ones and those that have served our country.

I was glad to have the chance to relate to the kids my few memories of my grandfather. I think I was six when he died. I remember when he and grandma would bring their RV and come visit us, I would be so excited. I also remember sitting on his lap. Even though I wasn't able to get to know him well, I realize now that we are all connected. The choices that he made directly affect me and the person that I have become.

We also went to have ice cream at the old Dairy Queen in Mesa. Josh remembers going to this Dairy Queen after visiting his great grandfather 'Gramps' on Sunday afternoons.
