As Candis reminds us, today, May 30th was the original Decoration/Memorial Day and, to me it always will be. I made my trip with flowers in hand this morning. It's been a lovely day here, sunny and warm, and especially at the cemetery where so many of the graves proudly wore flags.
One day I intend to make it to the Presidio. In the meanwhile, P-Rose, since you plan to be there, please give a mental salute to my grandfather, Carl Stone and to my step-grandfather, medal of honor winner Louis Mosher. Both are buried there along with my grandmother who chose to be buried with Louis.
