Memorial Day 2007
Today I made my annual trek to Ashtabula County. I usually go much earlier in May, but I was in California this year. My job was much easier than usual, because all the trimming had been done by the the people who tend the cemeteries. I went to the Lenox Cemetery, The Rays Corner Cemetery, (I did not ring the bell this time) and the one in Edgewood near Ashtabula. I planted flowers at several graves. Some I knew and loved very much. Others I never met, but I know their stories. I took a picture of my Watson grandparents since Bridget was born on Grandma Ida's birthday - May 10. I especially noticed the Veteran flags this year.
