As these beautiful doves were released on Saturday after the Flag Ceremony honoring our Veterans, Deceased Soldiers killed since September 11, 2001 and our Soldiers still serving our country, I thought of The Funeral of SPC Tommy Byrd that SSM and her DH attended on Friday. Their son Noah was a pallbearer at Tommy's Funeral. I have had Noah on my mind so much since his accident in August. SSM and Noah have become so special to me.

Thanks SSM for always being there when I have needed you. You are such a wonderful MOM and friend. Thanks again for sharing with us the funeral of Tommy Byrd. There are no words that I can say to make this family's pain go away, neither do I have the words that will see Noah through all that he has been through, but with you for his MOM, he will survive. THANKS AGAIN SSM.

Beautiful site indeed. :)

I think in the case of Noah and SSM, the apple doesn't fall very far from the tree. :)
