The Memorial Service for my Dad, James W. Reeves Sr., was held Friday. The flags were hung at half mass, there was an honor guard with a purple heart flag nearby. A three gun salute and taps culminated with my Mother receiving the folded flag. She too will be buried here at the Veterans Cemetery in Rocky Gap, near Flintstone, Maryland.
Bob said he felt more comfortable behind the camera and since I cried the whole time, I was happy to see the pictures after the ceremony.
Mom had a nice gathering at her house after the ceremony. All of the children and grandchildren were present, along with many cousins. The rain held off and the sky remained blue until the Marine Corp flag came down and the flags were raised.
