Beauty in the Sadness

The memorial service for a sailor killed in action. The 1100 sailors lining the streets under gray and gloomy skies. Pristine in their dress blues. The majesty and pomp all just conspired to send tears streaming down cheeks. Bagpipes, roll call, 21 gun salutes and a bugler playing taps - a beautiful moving send off for a man who touched so many. His family will always be in my thoughts.
