June 6th

coitsIn the history books and in our minds, June 6th, 1944 marks the landing at Normandy. Each year, those who fought and those who died in that invasion are remembered.

June 6th, for me, is also my mother’s and older brother’s birthdays. Mom would have been 99 today and my brother, Jerry (standing next to mom), would have been 78. They are both gone now, but their memories and their birthdays remain strong in my heart each day, but especially on June 6th.
