Damn, I need a diversion today. Memorial Day is an emotionally mixed bag for my family as we have many friends and family members to honor. One important thing I've learned over time is that not only is it proper to pay tribute to those who have passed, but even more vital to express our love, gratitude and admiration for those who are still among the living. After all, eventually we will all be but someone else's memories. Shouldn't those recollections be fond ones?
