We all have stories on Memorial Day that touch us in  different ways.  Long before I was born, my uncle was serving in World War II.  His plane was shot down over the Indian Ocean and his body was never recovered.  For our family, we celebrate Uncle Cliff for his bravery, love of his country and his valiant spirit.   My arms will be open wide to embrace him when we meet for the first time one day,  in Heaven. For the many service men and women who selflessly serve our country every day, and those who will never come home, we honor you with immense love and gratitude.  You, our heroes, have left an indelible mark in the hearts of America.
