It sounds like you have great memories of your son and lots to be proud of. Too many of our Canadian vets have lost their battle with PTSD and I commiserate. It takes a special person to serve their country and they all deserve our gratitude.
I love your way of honouring with the fund raiser.
I love the smoke.
I love the yard.
You and your son have inspired me to do something similar for our vets on our Rememberance day. I am so looking forward to it.
