I hope your Memorial Day was enjoyable as we honored those who gave their lives to preserve our freedoms while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
Yesterday [Sunday] we made our trek back to Wyandotte - the city where I grew up - with our son, Steve, daughter-in-law, Sharon, and granddaughter, Brooke. We were telling Steve about our recent visit and he said he'd like to go there too.
We began our outing by having lunch at Major Biddle's restaurant.
The sports mascot is the bear [what Teddy Roosevelt is known for]. The bear sculpture that sits on the front corner of the school property was added after I graduated.
Then we were off to see the houses Jerry lived in when he was growing up before his family moved from Wyandotte. Our last stop before returning home was the church we attended. Since it was a Sunday, there were people there following an evening service, so Steve took Brooke inside to show her his old Sunday school classroom, and the children's chapel where he knelt at an altar as a young boy and committed his heart and life to Jesus. Who knew way back then that he'd grow up to be a minister!
How did you spend your Memorial weekend?
