In memory of an amazing wife, mom, friend, librarian, and human… I challenged myself to read 75+ books in 2021. Maybe I‘ll even read some Stephen King #iwillholleryouhome #memorial #forevermissingyou #thankyou #avidreader #myothermother #bookgoals #booklover #herestoyou #loveyou

Given the opening paragraph, I think this book qualifies for the #memorial prompt for #fourfoursin21.

My dad made the journey to the wall, alone, not telling anyone, decades ago, leaving his medals there. We didn‘t know for years. He has gone back since a few times. I hope I can go with him someday.

This book broke me heart.

Eggs Yes 📚👏🏻😭 3y

gradcat It does seem sort of frightening to think and having lived, and having been forgotten...that‘s almost more frightening than facing death itself, I think. Nice choice! 👍 3y
