Memorial Day Table - StoneGable

This is part of a blog post from StoneGable

Red, White and Blue, Patriotic True!

Memorial Day was originally called Rememberance Day.  First established to honor and remember soldier's who had lost their lives in the Civil War. Their graves were decorated with flags and flowers to remember them and their ultimate sacrifice.

Rememberance Day was later changed to Memorial Day and remains a day to honor American men and women who have given their lives so we can be a free nation!

At StoneGable we will mark this day with a trip to a beautiful National Cemetery where my father is laid to rest and honor his memory with prayers and flowers. And then back to our home for a family barbecue to live out his legacy.

The inspiration for this table is our wonderful "Old Glory"! My heart sings when I see our flag. Being raised in a military family made me keenly grateful to be an American!

Happy Memorial Day! Remember our men and women who serve and keep us safe! God Bless America!
