Memorial Day brings back many memories for me. My 'New Dawn' roses always bloom for Memorial Day so as soon as I see their buds I know Memorial Day is not far away.
Memorial Day makes me remember decorating our bikes with crepe paper and flags when we were kids and riding them at the end of the parade.
It reminds me of the pools opening and baseball games.
It reminds me of potato salad, corn on the cob and cooking on the grill.
But most of all it reminds me of Billy, me big brother.
