A Beer for Frankie ~
May 29, 2012 § 3 Comments
I saw this on Facebook, and shared it there. It’s got something like a million and a half “likes” to date, all deserved in my book.
This touched me deeply ~ maybe just the very simple humanness of it. Sharing a beer with an old friend, a fellow soldier ~ what could be more natural? ~ of course that’s what you’d do, if you could. A bartender with heart who kept it there as long as she could. And seeing some of Frankie’s family members and fellow soldiers’ comments on the image, full of love. It just really brought it home, you know?
Rest in peace LTJG Toner, and all who have served us and left too soon.
