Memorial Day Weekend and The Olsen Family

We had a couple of opportunities this weekend to spend time with the family of Daniel Olsen. If you read some of my previous posts, you’ll read about the special relationship that I’ve developed with this precious family, who lost their son to sniper fire in Iraq six weeks ago. On Sunday we went to Fort Snelling National Cemetery for a special ceremony honoring Daniel. On Monday, we went to Shaina’s (Daniel’s sister) Graduation Open House. Since the open house was on Memorial Day, the local press covered the event. If you watch this video, you’ll see my son Chris at the tail end of it eating some gelato.
