    Everyone should have their picnic with family and friends, but don’t forget what this day is for. It is to honor our fallen soldiers and to pray for the ones who are protecting us and our freedom now. Thank you for your service to our country, Carlos.

    What A wonderful Picture! So Patriotic! Living here in Colorado Springs with Fort Carson,The AirForce Academy, Peterson Airforce Base. I always have our service Men in Women in constant Prayers for protection. I am so gratefull for every Service member who has served our country! And Most of all Tommorow Is to Honor and reflect on Those Service members who have Lost Their lives defending Our Country down through the centuries. From The bottom of my heart I cannot begin to thank them enough and their families for their greatest and most difficult Sacrifice!!
    May we never forget how truly blessed we are to Live In The United States of America!
    Thank You Carlos For your Service.

    That photo is simply stunning! Thank you Carlos, Donna and Austin for ALL you do for us MODS. You are just too good to us and I feel like a spoiled brat!
    What is Memorial Day these days? For most, it’s simply 3 days off work. For others, it’s lots of savings at stores nationwide. But for most of US, it’s a day to remember our fallen troops who fought in battles WORLDWIDE, thank those who returned and pray for those who are active today and protecting all of us. To do my part, I walked to the nearest cemetery, prayed and thanked the military personnel resting there for making the ultimate sacrifice on my behalf; I do understand freedom is NOT free.
    Have a great Memorial Day, everyone!

    Spirit, that made those heroes dare
    To die, and leave their children free,
    Bid Time and Nature gently spare
    The shaft we raise to them and thee.

    What a beautiful picture! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us once again. Thank you for your time of service in the navy. Lost my father a few months ago at the age of 95 who was a WWII veteran. I think of him today and the many men and women around the world who still are proud to protect and defend our country and way of life. May it owlways be so. Jan in Indiana

    these comment take my breath away. I could not say anything better. My husband is a former marine who marches in our local parade every year in spite of his age, our daughter is a retired AF colonel who was deployed several times and her husband is the local Wounded Worriors director.
    Thanks to you Carlos for your service and now for all you do for all of us. We love you!

  39. Colleen Poor Says:

    Thank you Carlos and Donna for your service to our great country. I always say the same to the family members because they serve too while their loved ones are away. My dad was 20 years in the Navy, 15 of it out to sea, so I have have great respect for all of you. May all of those who are serving have a blessed Memorial Day wherever they may be.

    Thank you for the great patriotic picture of Molly too!

      p.s. The 2 youngest both followed Molly’s deets last night, and youngest ate like a big boy, sob. When they were gone 2 adults entered box. We thought M&M until owlet returned & did not recognize them. They flew away without arguing. I’m wondering if was Wes & mate, size, color, behavior…..

  45. Holly Sue Says:

    Dear Carlos,
    My greatest appreciation to you, and Donna, for your service to our country and the beautiful Molly tribute to the sacrifices of so many. We are so blessed to be Americans!
    With Love to you! Holly Sue

  46. To my favorite Royal Family in the World!

    Carlos, I know you served in our Military (a Navy guy, as I recall); I, as well as many others, express my gratitude for your service. My husband (USMC-Vietnam) & I attended a Memorial Service this AM in LVNV. We were reminded of our own service to our Vets, especially those with needs. Everyone can do something & even just one small act of kindness can be a tremendous lift for someone who gave so much. I love our country & all those who have fought for liberty & freedom. USA!

  47. Janetniu Says:

    Dear Carlos, Donna and Austin,

    Thank you for the beautiful print of Molly and our flag — this is a very appropriate reminder of the love we all have for The United States of America!

    Thank you for all you have done to bring Molly, McGee and their offspring into our lives. Happy Memorial Day.
