2 Timothy 4:7

My husband's cousin Marcus, passed away in Iraq since last Memorial Day. I didn't know him very well, but he was a sweet kid and I know he is sorely missed today. Today I can't help but remember his mother and sisters' sorrow and the way the patriots of this small town lined the funeral path with people, cars, flags, and salutes.

"Army Sgt. Reuben Marcus Fernandez III, 22, of Abilene, Texas; assigned to the 2nd Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, Texas; died on Oct. 11, 2008 of wounds sustained when his vehicle struck an improvised explosive device in Majar Al Kabir, Iraq."

The verse from Marcus's memorial picture:

Happy Memorial Day everyone.
