Friends and Family Remember Lost Loved Ones

May 23, 2004--Posted at 6:00 p.m. CDT

BONO--Family and friends gathered on Sunday to remember the loved ones buried at the Trinity Cemetery in Bono.

This is an annual event attracting people year after year. The ceremony is usually closer to Memorial Day; however, today's earlier date didn't stop people from remembering the soldiers buried here, and the soldiers living overseas.

Vickie Strickland visited the cemetery today.  "In support of our military people over in Iraq, how we should support them, and how we should support our president," said Strickland.

Each year,  generation after generation come out here to remember those they have loved and those they have lost.

Rodger Kiser was also visiting the cemetery.  "We have a responsibility to pass our heritage along to our family.....and to the whole country," said Kiser.

The Taylor family makes it a tradition to gather here each year for reflection on good times in the past......and good times to come. "Our parents and grandparents have distilled in all of us to keep coming," said Taylor family member Rebecca Slack.

A flood of emotions return with each visit to the cemetery......but memories of love and laughter keep the family coming back.
