Today was a celebration of the life of one of our Fallen Hero's, Spc Michael Balsley, who would have been 24 years old today. It was a beautiful day....lots of friends & family coming together. Some of us had not met him in this life but I now feel I know him well thru those who did. I am honored to have been a part of it.
The day started out as it does this time of year......a bit overcast as the fog had come in.......but it burned off to give all a beautiful day. There was alot of storytelling....rememberances.....lots & lots of food......good music....a balloon release, 24 balloons (1 for each year)....lots of love.....some tears......AND A UH-1 HUEY HELICOPTER! You heard me right.....a helicopter buzzed the yard not once but twice.....IT WAS AWESOME. No pictures yet....Steve took most of the photo's today with his camera so we dropped the film off on the way home......but I will post as soon as we get em back. This was definitely a day worthy of one of OUR HERO'S.
