The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude. -Jeff Miller
The first thing we need to start planning when it comes to Memorial Day is how to make the tribute. Most people include photos and memories of their loved ones who will be remembered on a separate table, but Julie from Redhead Can Decorate had a different idea. She posted on her Facebook asking for people to write the names of the loved ones they’d be honoring that year. Then, she wrote them all on a paper runner and used it on the table for Memorial Day, to celebrate the lives of those brave people and honor each name.
