Remembering the ones we love on Memorial Day.

Missing You

To all the family’s around the globe

To all the loved ones nobody knows

To all our friends far and near

To all the ones we miss so dear

We want to say thank you for

All the memories that you left behind…

True love is so divine…

Now that we come up on this Memorial Day

There are so many words we forgot to say,

For all the Moms who lost their Sons

For all the Fathers who must mourn

We never knew how much we would miss you

We miss you more than anybody will ever know

Missing you…

To our fallen Heroes – We will always miss you

A little extract from our hearts…

Not only the soldiers who give their lives for freedom and peace are heroes we miss, our parents who gave it their all just for us are missed the same and honored on this day:


Even though she never wore the uniform she always spoke in the

Name of Peace. Fulfilling a duty beyond the means, caring for everyone she ever meets. Never had much, but always gave to those who had even less. Being filled with love toward each and everyone, a true Christian life she lived. As I remember back, it seems as it was only yesterday

Mom there’s so many words I forgot to say;

Missing You!


He was a special dad in our eyes

Seven years passed to our surprise

It seems like everyday that he is here

Oh god how we wish he was near;

A patient teacher, a watchful protector and a warmhearted listener, always good advise came from his lips and more often the will to take matters into his own caring hands.

For us he gave it all, early in our eyes

He took a fall…

Missing You

To all the aunts and uncles, friends and kin, missing you!

Roger and Birgit Pratcher

I miss them all, those I knew and those I never met. So many have sacrificed so much so that I can live as I do today. There are just no words powerful enough to thank them and not enough tears to wash away the pain of their loss. Beautiful poem of rememberance.
Take care,

Now that we come up on this Memorial Day
There are so many words we forgot to say

How very sadly true, for so many of us; and I truly hope many take at least a moment today to reflect on the sacrifices made by so many of our valiant soldiers, on this, their Day of Remembrance.

The Man Who Saved Christmas by Jeff Ovall

Christmas - only days away; plastic snowmen and glowing reindeer adorn the lawns of neighborhoods all across America. All is calm, all is bright, and yet there is something tragic..
