We’re planning on being there tomorrow for the Memorial Day service; this is a place of memories and history. One of the best speeches I ever heard was delivered here impromptu by Ruth Ketteringham at the Memorial Day service in 2006, a few months before her death at age 99 at the end of July. She was in a very special place at the time and spoke in metaphors that transcended our particular service, yet applied beautifully. I remember she spoke of God, water, gifts, stewardship, conservation, and creation.
Gloria put this notice on a couple of our other blogs earlier this evening:
Who: A group of friends and neighbors are called together by another neighbor Rick Nicholson each year to remember those who served our country—living and dead. We give thanks for those who protected the freedoms of our country so that we can live without fear.
When: Monday May 25, 2009
Where: Denison Cemetery, 2300 Ellen Alley, Cleveland, Ohio 44109
Turn left Off Pearl Road on to Garden Avenue (north of Denison Avenue)
