A Reminder

This Memorial Day we remember those who gave their lives for us and for those who protect our country. No "thank you" can possibly express how much we owe you.

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast,
And their names are engraven on honor's bright crest. 
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. ~Joseph Campbell



It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived. — General George S. Patton

We wish you a blessed Memorial Day.

Love, Cooper
