Paying respect at the Grave

Uncle Wade and family. Thank you for giving your life to win WWII. That is Wade with sisters Allene and Mary, Laura's mom, as beautiful as Laura is.

This has been a week to think about those who died. My missionary friend, our war dead. Today Brian sent pictures and brochures from his summer trip to France. He stayed mostly in Paris but made a day trip to the National Cemetery in Lyon. He found and photographed the marker of Ltn. Wade Horn, Laura's Uncle, who died on November 10, 1944 in the siege that followed Normandy.

Having a descendant at the gravesite for the first time in 64 years was special to us. Thank you Brian for doing this for mom.
