Thank you...

I thought I'd share with you a little bit more about how the We Remember set came together. All the images were created from memories and mementos from our family.

Thank you for your service:

I just loved this picture. The handsome man on the left is my Grandpa. He was in the army in the early 1950's. I don't think he enjoyed any of it, because he missed his wife and wanted to be home. I can't blame him one bit (my grandma was a sweet and loving person). But, he sent pictures home that were smiling and lighthearted... with letters that told all about their minutes apart. In fact, one picture I found was of him reading a letter, and he wrote on the back of it that he's smiling because it's from his sweet little wife.

Grandpa is still just that handsome and one of my all-time favorite people in the world. I love you, Grandpa.

So... thank you for all those serving in the military. I can't thank you enough for our freedom.
