    I'd like to share with you something I saw today that brought a tear to these old eyes. I live on a small stream. This morning I saw hundreds of blossoms floating down the stream. I ask my neighbor if he knew anything about it. He said a lady upstream about a quarter mile picks ever flower in her yard for Memorial Day and sends them floating down the stream as a tribute to her son who was killed in Afghanistan a few years ago.
