Engraved words resonate Memorial Day

"Call Out Our Name As The Years Go By. Remember Us And We Shall Never Die."

The haunting words are engraved in the war memorial on the northeast side of the Green Bridge.
They are a daily reminder of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice dating back to World War I.
The inscription resonates for Memorial Day.
So do similar epitaphs of solemn tribute found on monuments and headstones wherever kith and kin are gathering throughout our community.
Whether it’s on the sweeping grounds of Sarasota National Cemetery, Bradenton’s historic Fogartyville Cemetery, or a little country graveyard in Parrish where mighty live oaks stand sentinel.
