A few days ago I recorded a Memorial Day message called "A Time to Remember.” You can hear it on American Family Radio on Monday, May 26 at 11 AM Central Time.

As a teaser, here are four names connected with the first Memorial Day observance:

Miss Matt Moreton
Mrs. J.T. Fontaine
Mrs. Green T. Hill
Mrs. Augusta Murdock Sykes

Though none of these women served in the military, they served our country in a different way in 1866. I tell their story as part of the message.

Tune in to American Family Radio on Monday at 11 AM CT for "A Time to Remember.”
