High-five: Wreaths honor veterans

I would like to thank all those who laid wreaths at the Washington State Veteran’s Cemetery in Medical Lake (as part of Wreaths Across America). We laid my aunt to rest there a few years ago (she was a Marine in WWII) and to the person who laid that particular wreath on the grave of the self-professed chocoholic, I send my special thanks. Hopefully, I will make it back for the ceremony one of these years and can honor our veterans laid to rest there personally.
