Yesterday I read an article
from the June 2009 Reader's Digest
that touched my heart.
I think you would love it too.
It is called Finding Gilbert and it
begins on page 164. This is the
story of an American Soldier
away from home in France,
at Omaha Beach during World War II
and a little boy he befriended there.
A lifetime connection was made
but the story the soldier's family
heard was not complete.
This is the story of the family
connection that just would not
go away over the years leading
to a wonderful reunion.
The story is told by Diane Covington,
daughter of the American Soldier
featured in this heartwarming tale.
Great Memorial Day reading.
Have a special weekend and Monday
with your family.
May we remember those who died in
the service of our country.
May we strive to preserve the freedoms
these men and women sacrificed for.
