Memorial Day, USA, 2007

Today, we celebrate those who have served and have passed.


Woodrow McKinley


This is the grave of Mack's uncle, Woodrow McKinley, who served in WWII. When Woodrow found out he had cancer, he bought a pre-paid cremation plan. He got a discount. When asked where he wanted to be buried, he said, just get a pair of post-hole diggers, dig a hole between my mother and dad, and put the ashes there.

So the family did just that, took turns digging the hole, and put the ashes which were in a plastic container into the hole. Then they took turns drinking whiskey out of Woodrow's flask, poured a little in the grave, then filled the hole back up.
