Brothers Lee are thinking today is our memorial day with all the respect owed the veterans we honor on their days. Dad passed away 5-years ago and 17-years to the day after Mom.
This special day goes easier this year for this particular son, as I celebrate my grandson, Anthony’s, 1st Birthday today. He reminds me that life is precious, short, and ever so amazing.
Life inevitably brings darker days and then flashes …bright lights to show us hope, faith and charity are always there to light the pathway back. The real challenge is not the darkness, it’s nature’s counterpoint, it’s having the presence of mind and strength of character to open our eyes so as not to miss the unpredictable, but assured rays of light.
Dad and Mom you said goodbye to your son Norman and then hello to son Michael. This last year Dawne Lee (Dawne Wood Lee) and the family said hello to Anthony, yet had to say goodbye to Papa Wood. Such is the circle of life and we do our best today to remember the better moments, which our children and grandchildren make just a little easier to do?
Thinking about Ulrick A. Lee and Michael Lee today – hoping many happy moments for them today.
