My grandmother is interred in Santa Cruz. My aunt & uncle were scattered over the Pacific Ocean. My mother & father are waiting for me to take them to White Spar Family Campground, & Kaibab Natl Forest and scatter them there. They spent some of the happiest days of their lives in those two places, and will be happy to rest there in eternity.
I don't know any vets, except living ones.
So no, I won't be visiting a cemetery tomorrow.

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading. Lao Tse
The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it's the same problem you had last year. ~ John Foster Dulles
To ignore the facts does not change the facts ~ Andy Rooney
Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made. ~ Wayne Dyer
I was going to, but when they were alive, my parents adamantly believed in honoring the dead by serving the living. So, no cemetery visits, just personal kudos to families who are serving and a visit to a shut-in vet.

I went last weekend to clean my parents graves, I will be going again on June 9th to but flowers at the grave. June 4th is the anniversary of my dad's death and June 30th my mom's and being that they are not close to where I live, it is when I am in the area.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

This is Memorial Day weekend in America and many decorate their loved one's graves during this time. Will you be visiting one or more Cemeteries this weekend? Do you take flowers out to the grave sites?
