Hey Suzanne, I noticed on the Gorgeous Gingers page you only had a picture, not a link. So I added a link to this page of yours.

We remember McKenzie! None of our beans who were in the military died yet (at least the ones that we really knew), but Grandpa, Uncle Mike, Auntie Kim, and Great Uncle Jim all served in the military. They are all home safe and sound. Thank God, but we remember all those too, whose names are unknown, who gave their lives for us.

Hello sweet daughter! I like your post today! It pays tribute to everyone important in our lives! I remember my older brother Arthur. I miss my Chow Chow, Buddy. I miss my sister, Mimi. I miss my rat sisters Sally and Molly Brown.
Love, Oscar

I miss my Grandma and Grandpa. They died at two very different times in my life. Being from Hawaii, my Grandpa use to compile special tapes from old broadcasts of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. He didn't want me to forget that part of my heritage. Those Grands were my Mother's Parents and were from North Dakota. My Grandpa was so impressed with my Daddy's Hawaiian family. I miss friends both over the bridge and long since moved on to thier own lifes. Anyway, long enough comment. Thank you for letting us mention our friends and family.

We remember my Daddy's Father and his Uncle Bob who were both in WWII, both of my Mom's Grandmas and Grandpas, her Uncle Jay, Aunt Sally, and all the Ones Who Came Before. We're also thankful for the many who sacrificed and are still with us.

Hi Suz - what a nice idea - We remember my grandmas and one grandpa, my mom & dad, my friend Marv, who walked me down the aisle when I got married, my dear sweet kitties Frank and his sister Delores and Jaxom, whose spirit lives on here at the farm.

Have a good week. Tina, Neelix & Sinda, et al.

In Canada, we remember all those who gave their lives in service to their country on Remembrance Day, November 11th. We also honour all those who currently serve and who have served in the past on that day.

On Remembrance Day, we remember all those Canadian who lost their lives in war or peacekeeping missions; we remember my dad's dad, my mom's grandparents and my dad's grandfather, Whiskers (the one who came before me) and Princess (my mom's sister's cat who was companion to Whiskers.)
