I remember words my dad wrote in my "little autograph book" when I was a young lad!: "I've read these pages o'r and o'r, to see what others have written before, and here upon this vacant spot, I write the words, "FORGET ME NOT!"
Space will not suffice for all the "forget-me-nots" that Cedar Vale has given to my life. Looking through my mother's old albums, caused memories to abound...and realizing again, how rich that life was. And so, I close with these words:
"I've been places, some o'r and o'r, to see what others have done before,
Yet, Cedar Vale, here, on your special lot, none can compare to your "forget-me-nots!"
Tomorrow, Memorial Day will be commemorated in many different ways. Yet, the words from "TAPS" brings it all home....
"Day is done...gone the sun..from the hills, from the lakes, from the skies,
All is well, safely rest. God is nigh............"
May all of you be well and may rest fill your soul until we meet again...
