Stanley Burke on Memorial Day 2015

Dad was sleeping when I called, so Rebecca, the new helping hand, described this morning's scene...

Da attended the Amherst Island Memorial Day event today, looking fantastic in his uniform. He was the only man there in uniform. With the help of several little children, Dad carried a wreath and laid it in place. I can just imagine. I thanked Rebecca for painting that picture in my mind. How I wish I could have been there. We live too far apart. Most of us are here in Vancouver, with only Dad and Peggie on Amherst. So it is. That's Dad with cousin Patrick Burke, the Dad with brother Brian Burke, and Peggie with me. Love those selfies. I couldn't find a shot of Dad in his uniform, though I know I've seen a good one, somewhere.
