"Memorial Day Thoughts"

   "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." John15:13.
     As the Memorial Day weekend approaches, many of us are getting ready for time off with family and friends at the lake, the beach or backyard BBQ's. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's also a time to remember those who served our country and gave it all. Over the years countless men and women have served this great land and many lost their lives doing so. It's because of them we have the opportunity to travel freely and gather with others enjoying those freedoms .
   So today, I ask you to pause and think about those brave fighting men and women; they loved this country and died for it; they deserve your thanks, your honor and respect.
Have a great holiday!   Robert Helms
