    A beautiful tribute to this special day and all that it represents…. My Midwestern relatives always celebrated Decoration Day with armloads of flowers to decorate family graves, followed by a big family picnic in the cemetery! Hmm, how times have changed. The vintage postcards are lovely & the Field of Honor is impressive.
