Decoration Day

When I was growing up Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day.  And it was not a day for remembering our veterans but a day when you went to the cemetery, cleaned up the grave site of your loved ones who passed away and decorated it with flowers.   Shows you just how much things change and change back. I remember doing this with my Grandmother, Nancy Lee Ankum.
