Mile Marker, Honor, Farewell, and Family

Our family gathered at the Gerald B. H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery on June 18 to honor the lives of my wife's parents at their committal service and internment. This was an amazingly peaceful and beautiful place; a wonderful place to reflect among all the others resting here.
