Sketchbook: Memorial Day

Whenever I think of Memorial Day, I remember walking through the cemetery in Spanish Fork with my dad. We'd stop at headstone after headstone, and he'd tell the story about the person who was buried there. I was amazed at his knowledge and memory. To him, they weren't just markers and memorials — they were people with stories, who lived real lives. He made them come alive.

I wished that I had paid better attention. He's there amongst them now, and I hope that his story won't be forgotten.

Remember your ancestors this Memorial Day. After all, they worked together to bring forth you!
