Memorial Day -- for Daddy (this is a photo of his parents)

In Memory of all those men who died
Who served their land in forces strong
Who fought the fight and saved our peace
Who loved our country all life long.

In Memory of our father's fathers
Who came from countries far away
Who became Americans in all their glory
Who came to love the USA.

In Memory of their sons and grandsons
Who labored long and hard and true
Who fought and died beside each other
Who saved the country that they knew.

In Memory of all patriot people
Who share the love of this great land
Who shed a tear when the flag has risen
Who by our country they do stand.

Memorial Day
