Memorial Day - We Remember - 3 Generations

Today of all days we remember.  We remember those who have served our country and are now gone.

My Dad:  Master Sergeant
 William Norman Bagley, US Army

Born:  November 29, 1930
Died:  May 28, 1999
Buried: Bushnell National Cemetery, Bushnell, FLorida.

Memorial Day is a difficult time for my family.  Although we know my father is with our Father in Heaven it is a sad time.  It is made even sadder by the fact that because he died on Memorial Weekend we were unable to have his funeral until the 2nd of June.  This is significant because it is the birthday of my sister Gloria who is now with our Heavenly Father.

My Brother:
Rex Allan Bagley
US Air Force Retired

I am so proud of my brother for serving his country in Iraq.

My wonderful son:
Christopher William Torres, US Army

Christopher will be deployed to Korea sometime this July.  He will leave behind his children and his wife who will give birth to another child in November.

I am very proud of these three.  I've had numerous nephews serve as well.  To all of my family, and all soldiers everywhere, I salute you, and thank you for serving our country.
