As a child growing up on May 30Th every year Memorial day or has it was
known before that (Decoration Day). I can remember my mother gathering flowers
from our yard roses and snowballs and we would walk to the cemetery to
put them on my grandparents grave and also my aunt and a cousins grave. I
know now that times have changed but I still would keep the tradition
alive if I was still living in my hometown in California.
