For many, June 14th is Flag Day. For me, June 14th marks the day my cousin's son would celebrate a birthday. This is the second of many times that this day will pass without candles and cake and celebration. Last year, I filled a basket with items (a Saint Nicholas icon, candles, books, etc) to mark the day. This year, I made this little bracelet with pictures of her husband and 3 children. A tradition I hope to continue, giving her a token of remembrance, because for me, his memory is still alive and I still want to celebrate his birth and the blessing of his life. May his memory be eternal.
