Memorial Day A day to remember and honor those who have served and those we have lost. I remember Mary and Larry Berry, mother and father who served in WWII.
My son Colin who served in Afghanistan as a Corpsman in 2012. Though I do not need a day to remind me to think of Colin, he crosses my mind frequently every day, but I have noticed in the past three years there are things that bring back memories as fresh as yesterday. Listening to morning and evening colors played from Navel Base Ventura County, driving past the clinic where you worked for two and a half years. The dash in my car where you would prop your feet. Lucy's cute meow, reminds me of how you would carry her around when you were home. Seeing anyone in uniform. Driving past
Toppers twice a day. Driving past the shores where you liked to run. Your photo that watches me work each and every day. Thank you Colin for 23 years of making me proud to be your mom.
