Memorial Day Tribute

Welcome to Funky Cards and 
Memorial Day Challenge

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that honors those who have died while serving in the military.  Today I would like to pay tribute to Rudy Acosta.  Rudy was just 19 years old when he lost his life this past March in Afghanistan. Here's what happened- Click HERE.

 I have talked before about my brother Dalton, who is in the Navy. Rudy is Dalton's Godfather, Dave's, nephew.  

The people of Rudy's home town in California came out by the thousands to pay tribute to him.  They will never forget the sacrifices he made for us.  Click HERE to see how they said good bye.  Please never forget the young men and women who gave their lives so that we can be free!

Thank you for stopping by today. 

Please feel free to leave a comment to pay tribute to this awesome soldier:)


  1. Beautiful tribute to Rudy, and GOD BLESS RUDY, and all those who are willing to give their lives so that we can be FREE!

  2. Thanks! God bless Rudy, and his family :(

  3. Madison,
    I noticed that your followers aren't showing up either. I tried to leave a comment on your post yesterday but my computer wouldn't let me. What you did was a beautiful tribute to your friend. I've adopted soldiers and now have 3 friends overseas. Please keep them in your prayers. If you figure out what's going on with blogger or google, could you let me know. Thanks

  4. I don't know what is wrong with blogger. My comment section isn't working for a lot of people Sherry. I hope this gets fixed soon:( Thank you for the nice words. I will pray for your soldiers.

  5. Great layout. God bless our military!
