Today we celebrate the life of those who have passed away. Your memories of them come flooding into your mind. Every memory you relive is a chance to feel close to them. It also brings up the painful reality that they are no longer here with us. It is a day to reflect on how thankful and how lucky you are to be alive to celebrate Memorial Day. It reminds you how important it is to spend time with those around you all year long, creating happy memories. While you are gathered for your grill out today make plans to get together more often, not just on holidays. Happy Memorial Day.
