All gave some. Some gave all
The day was drawing nearer , I was going to keep the promise no matter at what cost to me.
Nobody would ever know my true heartache .
It had been 45 years , but I could tell you about everyone of those day.
Painting the crosses helped me to focus on something else, each cross representing a soldier who was part,of a platoon , wife second but first he was my lover. How could I tell my son that the man he has called daddy is not actually his,real,daddy? As the saying goes "All gave some, Some gave all" my sons daddy gave his all.
Well that is all from me in little old England. As you celebrate Memorial Day it seems appropriate to be doing this posting . Too many fathers sons nephews mothers daughters aunts etc have given their all for our countries both sides of the pond .
