As long as I can recall, the beautification of our family cemetary has been a Memorial Day tradition.  Wreaths are specially selected to decorate the graves of our ancestors while each generation is taught of the forefathers who created the family.  The oral tradition in our family is quite strong, and Aunt Winnie (aka Boose) is a fabulous keeper of the history of our cemetary.  With her, even the unmarked graves come alive with stories of amazing people.  And while the grounds are cleaned and embellished, laughter, celebration, and love abounds.
Sweet Shot Day
