Time to Redefine our Lives in Oregon

My family and I would like to take this opportunity….Disney style…..to say, “THANK YOU,” to all the courageous individuals who fought and gave their lives for our Country!!   There is absolutely no way to accurately express the feelings and realities that come with this day….thank you, just isn’t enough.


Disneyland, has been my family’s happy place throughout our lives.  It has been a place to smile, even in times of heartbreak.  Please allow us to share, Disney style, our heartfelt respect, and hope in what the soldiers of our great, United States, have given in the course of our country’s history.

And to close the day….please allow the 1st MARINE Division Band from Camp Pendleton to bring down our glorious flag at the happiest place on earth.  Happy Memorial Day!!

Thank you for celebrating our Nation’s day to remember our fallen soldiers with our family.  We wish you all the best.

Your friends from Oregon,

Tami, Tony, and family.
