Memorial Day: We are family


Celebrated Memorial Day weekend in Massachusetts. Visited my nephew and his family in their new home in West Bridgewater for a cookout, and stopped by Fall River to say hi to dad who due to poor health is now staying in a nursing home.

I enjoyed spending this time with relatives I rarely see. It’s because of the men and women who paid the ultimate price for our freedom that I had fun knocking back a few brewskis with my brother Chip, gnoshing on delicious barbecue ribs made by Matt, and playing bocce with the whole gang. On this Memorial Day, our family got to be a family. Thank you.
