Happy Memorial Day

Almost 79 yrs ago
My Nanny, she gave birth
The sun shined a lil’ brighter
When my hero arrived on this earth
He was the youngest son
His Daddy was a preacher
He grew up very quickly
With Vietnam as his teacher
He did a couple of tours
Got commissioned on the battlefield
His love for his country stayed true
Never to lessen nor to yield
He gave so much for what he believed
For the freedom we have each day
I’m so thankful to have him here
So he can hear me say…
Thank you Major Richardson
For serving the red, white & blue
You’ll forever be my hero
Always Daddy…I love you.
