Tips for Memorial Day safety
Airline delays, fumbles make for a terrible trip

How are you doing on Memorial Day?

I lost my Uncle Frank Gilliam in World War II. He died in the Battle of the Bulge in 1945 along with 81,000 other American soldiers.

I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for parents who have had a child killed in wars, for spouses who have lost their partners, for children who have lost a parent, and for those who have lost a brother or sister. My heart goes out to you on this day that we remember.

Best wishes to you and your families on Memorial Day.
