Another year zips by and we have to be reminded to remember those that are no longer with us. We aren't reminded in ways like a phone call or text message from others, but by all the BS Memorial Day sales events.
To me, it makes the time that much more sad. I, personally, never will remember family and/or friends lost by a sales event. It's not enough that we lose a loved one but to mark a day of remembrance with BS events, is obscene. And I'm sure that loved ones that I have lost would never want to be remembered by the slashed prices on new cars or the "great" deals you can get on yard furniture.
I've wrote this short blog to let friends/family of mine, know that I will always remember those that are no longer around me, physically. I will always believe that they are still with me regardless. They will always hold a special place in my heart. And God forbid, should anyone reading this should pass before me..........KNOW THIS...........you, too, will always remain by my side, as you did in the physical sense. And hopefully, you will feel the same about me. Why? That's the NON-BS side of Memorial Day. That's why we have the holiday.
For all those that have gone..........God Bless You and if possible, look over me and help me to remain the person that you loved and called friend.
