As my wife and I travelled to Long Island this week to share Thanksgiving dinner with my brothers and sister, it was natural to think of everything for which we are grateful. It occurred to me that none of the blessings that have come my way, would have been possible without the guidance and nurturing of my mother and father.
Mary and I took an hour out of our busy day to visit Calverton National Cemetery, the final resting place for Mom and Pop, as well as the final resting place for thousands of brave soldiers whom I’ve never met. They too, each in his or her own way, have made it possible for all of us to enjoy the many blessings in our lives.
May we never forget those who came before us and always be grateful for the blessings they have bestowed upon us.
