Very few of us know a Gold Star Family. For most of us the loss of a service member is felt when we read a death notice in the newspaper and pause to say a prayer. Life resumes. For the Gold Star Family life is forever changed. Forever halted. Their loved is one frozen in time, their memories limited to those stored up. They are missed every minute of each day, especially those moments when families gather. We rarely pause to think of the loss of that person and the impact their absence has on our country. These men and women, who gave so freely everything they had to give, represent the best of America. When Western New York loses a Patriot WE lose them forever! We lose their optimism, their work ethic, the children they would have raised to also love their country, we lose our future neighbors. We lose so very much! We will gather to remember them. We will gather to get to know them and their families so our children will know their heroes. We will never forget our fallen. Join us for a night of Thanksgiving for our fallen and the families that love them.
