Sheila Boyd says, “I would like to thank our service men and women for their willingness to serve and all of their sacrifices made on our behalf. We talked about it at work and were surprised at how many people, kids and adults, who don't know what Memorial Day is all about. I even learned more facts about the history of the holiday myself this year. Just wanted to say thank you.” She adds, “We got to enjoy our grandkids, Josie and Dallas, this weekend. The house is coming along. They will be taping and bedding this week. I will have a house in the not so distant future. Wesley will be so proud.”
