Memorial Day


This is a picture of my two Uncles in World War 11. Arent they so handsome? Roger Boon Gilmore and Russell Martin Gilmore. The uncle pictured on the right lost his life on the Destroyer USS Maddox which sunk off the coast of Sicily Italy in the invasion of Sicily. I never of course knew him and was told he was a very gentle nice man. Anyway today I honor him and actually everyday of my life I honor him and think of him often. Think of what it would be like to have grown up with him. I would have had more cousins to play with and grow old together. So today all we have is a monument to place a little rose by his name. His tomb is is in the USS Maddox in the Meditteranian Sea. Sally

Hi Sally,
Yes, it is a wonderful pic of your two Uncles and I am so sorry for your loss of one in Italy. My Uncle was also there in the same place and I bet they knew each other. We honor them all and will always be so thankful for the sacrifices made. Your Uncles are heros.

Thank you for stopping by today and your kind comment and shoppe visit too.
You are such a dear. I bet you are busy with your shoppe. Have fun and enjoy!

XOXO Celestina Marie
