The wreath-laying at Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery in Suffolk, Virginia began at 9 a.m. on Saturday, December 10th. Family members were given the opportunity to place the wreath on their loved ones grave. I was very honored, as well as emotional, as I positioned the wreath against my husbands headstone.
The ceremony that followed was both moving and inspirational. I had a flood of thoughts and emotions run through my mind as the flags were presented,
Shirley, John and I walked back to Elbert's grave. Where once stood barren white stones now the ground was resplendent with green and red. Honor, glory and respect. That's the way it should be.
My own personal thoughts, feeling and more pictures can be found at http://ourjourneythroughalzheimers.blogspot.com/.. I hope you will go there and continue reading about the Wreaths Across America.
