Burton family decorates grave at Bearwallow Church

Memorial Day weekend in our country is a time of leisure and rest, the kickoff for the summer tourist season. Traditionally for many of us, a part of the holiday weekend is spent on the original intent --
remembering those family and friends, especially Veterans, who have passed on. Cemeteries in Adair County have never looked cleaner and neater than this holiday. Flowers seem to get brighter every year. Mowing and trimming has been done for ultimate maintenance.

Memorial Day was first celebrated in the very small town of Waterloo, New York, where one person was struggling with the question of how to remember those lost in battle. On that first day the businesses were draped in black and the whole town walked to the cemetery to place flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers.
