Memorial Day

Terry Mattingly and family are leaving us again. I know that experience. I had it with the US Department of State.

We had a going away cook-out for Terry and his family.  I took the #10 bus from Patterson Park Avenue to the cookout.  It was quite an enjoyable ride and we had a great bus driver.

This was a wonderful event for me, especially since I got to see some of my kids.  It is exciting watching them grow up and become adults.  I still cherish the photo of one of them sitting on the bishop's lap several years ago.

The food is always very good at functions of an Orthodox church, and this event was no exception.  One could die for the pulled pork and the banana pudding was the best that I can remember.

We started the event with prayer, of course.  Everybody was able to take an active part in the prayer and we also sang Memory Eternal for those who gave their lives in battle for our country.
