Oh my how I miss my hometown. Fond memories of Memorial Day Parades and Hot Dogs afterwards at the American Legion...but mostly decorating veterans graves with my beloved father that has since passed away. Seeing these photos brought all those great feelings back. THANK YOU Patchogue for instilling wonderful values and a strong sense of community. Something I am still trying to find in California after 18 years. Cecelia
