Remembering Those Who Paid for Our Freedom

I know I just did a post yesterday, but it is Memorial Day and I think we need to do some reflecting and some thanking for the people that fought and died and are still fighting for our freedom.  They gave up so much for us to have everything that we do have now.  So, even though Memorial Day is almost over and it might be over by the time you read this still just take a moment and remember those that fought for us and thank them.  Thank the families that lost them and supported them through all their  hard work.
Today me and my mom took a little trip to middleton, emmett, and back to boise to visit some grave sites of the ones we love.  My great grandpa Seamons who served in our military and our Grandpa Millett who I didn't get the chance to meet served our country too.  These two men leave a great impression on our lives.  They were amazing men and did our country and families proud.  I am so grateful for their influence and hard  work.  I look forward to meeting my Grandpa Millett someday and reuniting with my Great Grandpa.

Some more grave sites that we visited that weren't apart of the armed forces, but still deserved our remembrance were my Great Grandma and Grandpa Cluff and my Great Grandma Seamons who was also buried with her husband.  It was really good to see all of their graves and just take some time to remember them and all that they did for me and their family.  I am very glad to have the gospel in my life and to know that I will be able to be with them again someday and to be able to see all of them in their perfect state.  It just brings happiness to something that can seem so sad.  I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day :)
