Down the Ballot

Rest. Rebuild. Remember.

Today my family started to say good-bye to our Great Uncle. It was a nice service. It was outside, the sun broke through the clouds, taps played. Simple and short just the way he would have liked it. All his health problems developed in the last two years of his life. Not bad when you have lived for 95 years. He was a member of that 'Greatest Generation' as Tom Brokaw so coined and made famous. He would probably have been too modest to admit it himself, but there are many times when I think that his generation may really have been the greatest.
