Seasonal Greetings from Cambridge American Cemetery

This is the lovely Christmas spray created by the designers at the Manor Florist in Cambridge, UK to celebrate my brother. Mos of the brave heroes buried in Cambridge have little  or no  family who remember them personally. I am the last of George’s immediate family, the baby sister born two years after he  died on a ship returning to England wounded after his jump into Normand;y early in the morning of June 6, 1944 of D Day.


This summer my family visited Cambridge and honored George’s life of sacrifice  with a service  and stone rubbing for posterity. Below is the post I blogged after the visit.


Below is the website  about my brother  for people who may be new to my blog. Please share with others, especially active military or veterans and their family.

New Year’s blessings !

    Beautiful Anne. It is a comfort to know he is always taken care of. I have friends, Henry & Maria, lovely Danish couple, always look for Allies’ graves in their travels and care for them. When so many hate us Americans, it feels good to know such people.

      What a lovely story about your friends. I know many lovely French Normandy residents
      lovingly care for our heroes. Our guide Eric himself a French paratrooper said that many people think of themselves even today as the 51st state of the United States. My friend who is a Dutch military officer is teaching her young daughter to place flowers for the Allied troopers in gratitude. It is a blessing to hear these testimonials.
