All that can be said for today was written a century ago and comes to my mind every year on this day that we remember those who died for our Country.
I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts, that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle.
I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.
I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom.
Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,
Mother’s Day? With all the time spent on the phone taking gift orders you would think that would be enough of a reminder for me to NOT FORGET MOTHER’S DAY! Well luckily I remembered in time to get my gift selected and out the door in time for our standard shipping here at The Fruit Company.
She received the Cheddar, Pears, and Apples and absolutely loved them. In fact she sent me a picture of the gift which was neat to see since we always see the gifts leave our building but never get to see them arrive.
With all the gifts that went out I am sure there were many happy mothers out there that enjoyed them immensely! We had a great time getting all the orders taken and in the system and can’t wait till next Mother’s Day!
