Recently my husband passed away and was interred in The National Cemetery of the Alleghenies. My son and I went to the cemetery for the first time since his interment.
When we drove up, it was a beautiful sight to see thousands of white crosses adorned with beautiful green wreaths and large red bows on each and every grave. It made our sorrow more bearable.
I know it took hundreds of volunteers to do this.
This was such a beautiful tribute to our veterans and their families. My son, Scott, and I would like to say "thank you" for all the love and compassion that was shown by all these volunteers.
Thank you and God bless each and every one of you.
