Veronica I. “Ronnie” Jones, 850-547-0102 MEMORIAL DAY is May 31st ~ Say a prayer for all those who died in Service to our Country; for without their sacrifice and the sacrifices of their families, we would not be a free nation and be able to make the choices we make. God Bless all those who serve our country ~ and that means each of you as well, whether you be a fireman, police officer, doctor, lawyer, farmer, house- wife, blue collar, or white collar worker, it takes hard work to own, operate, or work for someone else so we can bring smiles to those around us and give our fam- ilies what they need and deserve. As May is upon us, I seem to remember (and this was many moons ago) we had a parade in the small town of Vincentown, NJ. In that parade, were two young girls. Yup, you guessed it ~ one of them was me, and the other was my best friend Rita. We weren’t rich by any stretch of the imagination. Rita’s father worked at the chemical plant a short way from her home; my mom and dad both worked at J & H Garage. They owned it, I’m very proud to say. Rita and I would fancy up our bikes, and dad would put them in the back of his truck and drive us to the starting point of the parade ~ known as The Memorial Day Parade. On the ends of the handles of the bikes were long colored strings of some sort, red, white, and blue; and in the spokes of the wheels were colored pieces of cardboard or paper as I remember. Those memories of days gone by and the smiles on people’s faces watching in awe of that small town parade honoring the fallen. Always work hard for our country. Stand up for what you believe in. It’s the right thing to do. Stay Safe.
