the people at the memorialA civic reception. Coffee and pastries. The town really has pulled all the stops out. It is true that there is a deep sense of genuine gratitude for, as the teacher just said to her class of children, “the people who made Europe free”. There are special flags on the church tower and the bells are going to ring at 5 tonight . Letters from the RAF Association president and others to the Mayor of Weert.

Larry very moved at the grave. He looked at the new stones and said “They gave their yesterdays so we could have our tomorrows.”
