Another Memorial Day Tribute

 Anyone who knows me or has even read this blog much, knows that I am fascinated by cemeteries. I love walking through them, reading the different headstones and imagining who these people were, how did they die, how had they lived. 
Mt Carmel Cemetery, Morris
DeBoldt Cemetery, Wedron
Ottawa Avenue Cemetery, Ottawa 

It wasn’t any different on our trip to Illinois in April.
Until we got to this cemetery.
 I couldn’t get out of the car to walk among these headstones. It was much too somber. I would feel like I was disrespecting all these men and women, invading their lives. Their lives had already been invaded enough during their years of service.
Maybe a little late, but yet another tribute to Memorial Day.
