Sunshine at the Graveside

Brent dedicated the grave.  There was a 21 gun salute and then mom received the flag.  Ella was on Mary's lap with Aubrey on mine.  When mom received the flag, Ella saluted.  Very sweet.

As we thanked the veterans for their presentation, the man that was wearing the Marine uniform mentioned that this tiny little boy came running up to him afterward calling him Daddy.  He found out that this little boy's father was in Afghanistan and as the little boy was led away he yelled over his shoulder "Bye Daddy".  That little boy was Matthew, Charitie and Evan's son.  Evan is in Afghanistan as a pharmacist working in the hospital.  We missed him at the funeral.  So grateful what he is doing but looking forward to when he returns to his family.  He is missed.  Our men, women, and their families in the arm forces sacrifice so much for us.  Enough is not done for them.
