(Not So) Common Sense | They’re like Google, with wrinkles

We in the United States celebrated Veterans Day last week. From coast to coast, we enjoyed parades, tributes, the laying of wreaths, and at the Vietnam Veterans War Memorial. Nearly 60,000 names of veterans killed in that war were read, day and night, for four days.

Jesse Paul Gilleland, WWII Veteran and POW

Greatest Generation Veteran – Jesse Paul Gilleland

(Snellville, Ga) Jesse Paul was born on June 19, 1916, in Grayson, Georgia, into the modest farm family of Elmer Gilleland and Chloe Viola Turner, both originally from Dawson County. Siblings included John Boyd, Vera Belle (Nash), Eva Estelle (Hewatt), Loyce Lucille (Rawlins) and Jewell Ophelia (Cannon) and James Elmer. All remained in the Snellville area, except Boyd who would eventually relocate to Virginia.

Tim Stewart Funeral Homes & Crematory go above and beyond to provide first-class funeral services for Veterans and their families

Every Veteran deserves a hero’s sendoff

Famous American writer Joseph Campbell once wrote, “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” In my opinion, this is the perfect definition of all the veterans who have so courageously served our great nation.
