In Memoriam

Benjamin Disraeli said, “The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example.”

While Memorial Days was established to honor those who died in service to our country, we tend to often also use it as a day to remember those in our lives who died less traditionally heroic deaths: our parents, grandparents, spouses and other loved ones who may have passed at home or in a hospital instead of on the battlefield, but whose legacy is the memory of a name we personally hold great and an example we are proud to have inherited.

Of course, first and foremost, we hold this day sacred to pay tribute to our fallen military heroes. Those who defended our freedom and the freedoms of others because they were heroes in the truest, most indisputable sense of the word: their lives stood for something greater than themselves.

At Home Instead Senior Care serving the Detroit metro, Oakland County, Macomb County, Wayne County, and Southeast Oakland County, we will be remembering both types of heroes this weekend. We thank the ones who served for their courage, their valor and their sacrifice, and the ones who didn’t for impacting the lives of their loved ones in a quieter, but no less meaningful, way.

We wish you all a safe and peaceful Memorial Day, surrounded by the ones you love.
