Count your blessings- Memorial

On Memorial Day I went to the cemetery to put a flag on my daddy’s grave, like I do for most holidays. As I was leaving and wiping away tears, I looked down at his foot stone, and it read: Hugh Frederick Snell Sr., US Army World War II, Dec. 1 1922 – Nov. 30, 1997. Purple Heart/Bronze Star Medal. I took a second glance and then I found myself smiling. That ‘dash’ represented his whole life!
