“Memorial Day Celebrated TODAY” 5/29/2017

1944 – “To My Sweetheart” – – from AL…


This photo is of   –  Al E. Aldrich, brother to my husband, Lee G. Aldrich, Sr. – and uncle to my sons, Lee, Jr. and Al Aldrich. The  photo must have been intended for a girl-friend – Al has a date of July 8th, 1944 – Italy and also he has written: “To My Sweetheart”    —   “Al” – also,  there is some other writing on the back of the photo – but this photo was pasted with glue on to a black page of a photo-album  – and was carefully sliced out – and some of the writing can no longer be made out – so I guess we just do not need to know what was there – I feel so “LUCKY” just to have this remembrance of my brother-in-law.

You can tell that some bending of the photo and damage  was done by someone – sometime ago –  no one knows what happens to all their stuff when they move  or leave behind all their earthly possessions for the next generation  —   Al and his brother Lee, my husband  have already gone on to a much better place – but they are  both really missed by us who  are sure to follow soon, enough?

On this Memorial Day – I  do  remember those in my “Family” and all those still serving in the Armed Forces  – asking Almighty  Yahweh’s  special  blessing –   since – – we all need ‘prayers’   said for us –  and to always be remembered … in some way – – –  my thoughts are that   —  to send blessings of “LOVE”  to all those we hold dear  in our “LIFE” time  – –  makes for a better  world  – and our own loving memories   – will  be passed on to the next generations!

This is Albert E. Aldrich…my husband Lee’s… older brother.

This is the one week…that I would like to remember… on each day of the week… at least a different member of our FAMILY… someone that served in one of the ARMED BRANCHES of SERVICE – – just so that the whole world…will also be inspired to remember someone in their own FAMILY.

It would be wonderful…if AMERICA…would spend more money on the men and women that volunteer to serve…to protect all of AMERICA – – and the Countries that believe in the same  LOVE for one another…to LIVE in a Country …where FREEDOM is an important part of the way we LIVE! We each interrupt some part of our LIVES to share …our young ones giving up their LIFE for the PASSION  of sharing our strong connection of equality of LIFE …one for another… and we all remember that we owe the CREATOR…the true strength that – – we have and share with those that also believe in the same CREATOR…the one true giver of all good gifts.

Al Aldrich was a true brother to my husband Lee –  – – they each always had the other in mind…when something exciting was going on – – especially when it came to working together…in the later years of their LIFE. Each had health problems and each was right there for the other. Sometimes – – in some FAMILIES…when someone needs a helping hand… it is surprising…no one there to give a helping hand – – and or  even.. to just be there. 

Al and Lee are both together where …they no longer have any worries of what is happening on earth…so… if there is a way…where they are NOW – – -I’ll bet that they are having some … real FUN!

If… it is at all possible…right NOW…check on your members of your FAMILY…especially if they have served in the ARMED FORCES… if they need anything at all…see to it… that they receive what they need.  There  are  special agencies that have ways and means of helping – – see to it that they are receiving the needed help…NOW!  AND…do not forget…when nothing else works…PRAYER – – is the  “ONE” way to secure HELP…from ABOVE!
