On May 15, 2012, my grandfather’s service was held in a small funeral parlor in Tyler, Texas. At 87 years of age, he departed this world leaving behind his wife of 63 years, three children, and eight grandchildren. A post-WWII veteran, engineer, and family man, he lived his American Dream in East Texas.
On Memorial Day, we honor the courage and sacrifices of American soldiers who gave their lives to serve. Many families also gather to spend time together during the long weekend. While you might be distant from your family this year, you can still connect on a Caribu Call for a virtual picnic or reunion! Choose some books and activities to try together, and share memories from years past. Here are some of our favorite Caribu picks for the long weekend.
