We have started a new Memorial Day tradition. Starting this year we took a trip to the cemetery where Jeremiah's grandpa Fred Albert Waite was buried. As you can see on his gravestone he was a WWII veteran. He passed away when Jeremiah's mom was about 12 years old.
We are indebted to our soldiers for sacrificing everything to preserve our freedom here in America. Grandpa Waite was able to come home from the war but it had an irreversible effect on him, physically and mentally. War is not kind.
Fred Albert Waite died on September 10th, 1967 from complications of lung cancer surgery.
Thank you to Grandpa Waite, Grandpa Leverton (Boone's dad), Grandpa Kelly Hall (Renae's Dad), and every soldier who has fought and is fighting for our liberty!
