Music & Memories

Script for 1325th broadcast of Music & Memories on KASM radio, 1150AM.

Good Morning!

This is Pat Patton, inviting you to join us for the 1325th broadcast of "Music & Memories".

And welcome to all of you listening over KASM.

At Patton-Schad our mission is Honoring Life's Memories; providing caring and compassionate funeral and cremation services throughout central Minnesota.

This program is our way of reaching out to help families deal with the difficult days surrounding the anniversary of the death of someone they loved.

Our purpose is to let those families know that others care - we remember . . . their families remember . . . and we encourage friends to show that you remember also.

Tomorrow is Memorial Day, a national holiday since the Civil War. It is a day that we as a nation remember those Americans who have sacrificed their lives for their country, and in so doing, have preserved our freedoms, and way of life.

Tomorrow is also known as Decoration Day, a day to visit the cemetery and decorate the graves of those family members who have died.

As a nation, as families and as individuals it is a day of remembrance; a day of remembering the joy of the life of our loved ones and a day of remembering the sadness of their death.

On our program this morning we remember the sacrifice of our deceased veterans and dedicate it in their honor and to the memory of:
