Today is the 70th anniversary of D-Day. We all know 
Michael was a WWII buff. That started when he was only 
3 years old when we showed him a photograph of Jim's 
dad in his Army uniform. He landed on the beach on 
June 7th. We took our boys there when Michael was 10. 
He was so overwhelmed by the thousands of white 
crosses in the American cemetery. Throughout his 
short life, he kept that photograph of his 
grandfather in his room and his deepest respect 
and admiration for our veterans. Today, leaders 
from all over the world are gathered there to 
remember the cost in human life and suffering that 
allows us our freedom. Some of our veterans from 
Memphis are there today thanks to Diane O Hight 
and the Forever Young Senior Wish foundation. 
Our good friend, Dr. Rice Drewry volunteers as 
the trip doctor. He's known Michael since he was four. 
Today, he will release some of Michael's ashes on the 
Beaches of Normandy. And in my mind I'll hear the 
sad and lovely song, Forever Young that Rice wrote. 
A month ago today, I received the last text from 
our son. We were looking forward to meeting up half 
way between Memphis and Nashville on the other side 
of Jackson with Anthony and Alyssa to celebrate 
Mother's Day. 

Tomorrow makes one month since he's been gone 
from us. Our hearts are still broken and the 
tears just don't stop. 

Remember him in your hearts today.
