Let’s do something together for Memorial Day.
Let’s memorialize someone.
Here’s what we’ll do: In the comments section below, just write the name (first only is fine) and a memory or two you’d like to pass on about them. Even just a phrase or sentence is fine, though stories are welcome, too! You can even e-mail me a picture to include, if you’d like: syntaxsorceress @ gmail.com
Then I’ll wrap up all the replies in a special post for Memorial Day—a post written by all of us for our fondly remembered loved ones.
What do you say?
I’ll get us started …
