Thank you Wreaths Across America

1 Comment

I go to Arlington National Cemetery periodically to visit my parents. I find it an awesome place that moves me in many ways. Of course the first way it moves me each visit is sadness. I miss my parents and the support they gave me. But as I talk with them I always find comfort and feel better for visiting. Again on my holiday visit this year there was a wreath at their headstone.

The organization Wreaths Across America had been gracious enough to lay one there again. It makes a honored and hollowed place more beautiful for a few weeks a year than it already is.

I’ve been doing a couple of photographic projects over there during my visits that I’ll be showing later this year. But here are just a few with the wreaths they bring each winter for you to enjoy.

May all who rest here, rest in peace.

Before the snows this week.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
