 Lest we forget...

 REMEMBERING
      On Sunday, November 11, I was privileged to partic-
 ipate in laying a wreath on behalf of the members of the
 Flamborough Chamber of Commerce at the Waterdown
 Legion cenotaph. This was my first opportunity to par-
 ticipate in a Remembrance Day ceremony since I was in
 elementary school. It was a gorgeous day!
      Remembrance Day has always been a very impor-
 tant day for our family. My grandfather – Opa as I called
                              him – fought in World War II
                              and I can recall the many
                              stories that he would tell me
                              as we looked at yellowed
                              photos of him and his com-
                              rades in uniform.
                                   My other grandfather,
                              who fought in this same war,
                              never returned from battle.
