In Cohesset (West bridgewater)Ma. there's a memorial for Vets.A Marine, Dean Hardy petitioned the town for 10 years to use this island of ground and was able to get the town to dedicate it. And you don't have to have passed on to have a brick commemorated . Brian's scout troop led the Pledge of Alliegence, a local Pastor prayed for a blessing, a marine (once a Marine always a Marine and now a state trooper) and his wife performed beautifully.The whole time I was thinking "I wish Stuie could see this.'Anyways it was a very moving dedication, because of the fact, this year Dean was honoring his uncle who also served as a Marine but this week passed on from cancer.
WOW! Yes, Stuie would indeed have been happy! I'm sure he is!
