I have asked to have no funeral, and no memorial service. I hate other people's and would certainly not appreciate my own.
A wedding is a funeral where you smell your own flowers.
Hasta de los malvados, nadie habla mal en su funeral.
Edgar López Vargas
137 years later, Memorial Day remains one of America's most cherished patriotic observances. The spirit of this day has not changed - it remains a day to honor those who died defending our freedom and democracy.
