Military Honors

I add these photos to my blog in honor and the memory of Homer Canfield,  my wife’s Uncle.

I have written and re written this experience and nothing in my words can truly do justice to witnessing a burial with a Military Honor Guard nor am I able to express the range of emotions felt this beautiful sunny day in West Virginia.

The photos below were taken with the families permission.  I pray these pictures honor Uncle Homer and his family…..
