I never get jaded by the Flag Ceremony and the Military honors given at Memorials and gravesides. Yesterday was my fourth funeral in two weeks and I am thinking alot about life and loss and the amazing way our lives weave in and out with so many people and places. Rogers active duty grand daughter received the flag on behalf of the US Navy and the US government.
Rogers family started in Minnesota, then California, the Arizona, Joe was born in New York, and lived in Oregon and Arizona.
Roger had Norse blood, Joe was German and Polish, both were Americans and both served in time of war.
