  • We human beings are forgetful about many things. Like the man who said sometimes he got undressed to get a shower and suddenly he could not remember if he was getting in or getting out of the shower. Or another person said they would find themselves on the stairway and couldn't remember if they were going up or coming down the stairs.

    The worst forgetfulness is to forget people. This Memorial Day weekend think of others, love others and remember others. Remember deceased and living people this weekend.
