Memorial Day

My Dad did not like to make a big fuss on Memorial Day. We did not troop to any cemetery, nor do I remember attending any services when young.

More than once when discussing funeral plans, he said that he simply wanted to be wrapped in a blanket and put in the hole, as if it were good enough for the Marines in the Pacific, it was good enough for him.
