Memories of Mom

Memorial Day is being celebrated this Monday.  It is such a special holiday…really a holy day for our nation, honoring those who paid the ultimate price for the freedoms that we enjoy.

My Mom passed away last October after a short and tough battle with cancer.  She was part of the Greatest Generation who got through the hardships of the depression and fought and won World War II, and came home to raise their families and build up our nation.  It was always great to have her on the radio with me and Rita Stevens during our morning show.  With each passing day I miss her, but on these special days, I miss her that much more.

If she were still here, she would remind us to put out our Flag, and take time to remember our war dead…and it’s okay to cry when you do so.  Miss ya Mom…my flag will fly in memory of you as well this year.
