In Remembrance: Memorial Day 2012

On Memorial Day, we honor the men and women who have bravely served in our armed forces.

All week, we have been collecting photos of beloved veterans from our users and featuring them in our In Remembrance: Memorial Day 2012 album on LegacyConnect, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest. We’ve been awed by the many photos we’ve received – from vintage wartime classics to the most recent photo taken before a much-loved veteran died.

We won’t stop honoring veterans tomorrow just because Memorial Day is over – it’s something we do every day at And if you have a photo you’d like to add to our In Remembrance album, we invite you to post it to LegacyConnect or email it to

And, of course, we’d like to salute all the veterans who have died serving our country. We’re grateful for their service and sacrifice.

About Linnea

I joined in 2000 as an obituary writer. In the years since, I've done a little of everything for our Operations team, from content review to customer service to creating web pages for funeral homes to training new employees to my current position, Content Manager. I love this position, because I get to write little bits & longer pieces - whatever's needed at the moment - and I get to proofread a lot, satisfying my inner nitpicker. And I love being on the blog team, because I get to write interesting features for the blog. I love to write! In my spare time, I... can you guess?... write. I'm hoping that one day I can add "published novelist" to my bio. I also enjoy working in my vegetable garden and cooking, baking, canning, making ice cream, and pretty much anything else in the kitchen. I love to read, compete in trivia contests, and attempt to keep up with my Netflix queue.
