Memory Day

This being Memorial Day I'd like to take a moment to stop and remember all of those who are gone. I miss them all and hope that if there is something after this life they know that I'm can't wait to see them again. As life moves on we all eventually drop out, in the end our lives are short and all those we love will either pass away or watch us do so. But just because they're gone doesn't mean the feeling we had for them are any less. I loved them all when they were here, and I still do even though they have gone ahead. Life is a road, and someday we'll all reach the clearing at the end of the path. I'm not there yet, but I know they'll be waiting.

Efrain Rodriguez... just wanted to add a name to your memory list. This is the one person I want to greet me when I get there. I am sure he will have a lot of stories to tell me with that excited twinkle in his eye.

Aza, great post. I'd like to add my father, Victor, who was a 2-tour Vietnam Vet who died from a 4-pack-a-day habit and alcoholism. He was very traumatized and could never adjust to living out of the jungle. I miss him so much and I will give him a big hug when we next see each other...

one website is a huge sobering reminder of the poeple we're losing right now overseas. icasualties compiles write ups on people that gave their lives...

I like your idea of expanding the meaning to remember all the people we've lost who have meant so much to us. Great post!

There is a great quote I heard somewhere that I love. It goes something like, "Just because the ship goes out into the fog and we cannot see it any longer, doesn't mean it isn't there." I said it a little funky but when I first heard it, it was so powerful...
