Granger Flag – Pine City

Dear Mike & Pat Labelle;
I have been slow in the email department, however there are a lot of things going on up here in Pine City that I cannot place on the front burner, but when the flames starts burning one must take care of it immediately.  Since the 18 March 2012, presentation several medical issues have slowed Father down, but all has finally settled down.  Dad is 89 years of age.
As Memorial Day approached I wrote out a plan on when to fly Dale’s Flag.  I have decided that it will, as a minimum, be flown on the Memorial Day in May, on 3 October the date he was killed, 11 Nov Veterans Day, and 21 November the date he was born into this world, plus any other special days.
As you may recall you presented the Honor and Remember Flag to my Father, Duane J. Granger II, on 18 March 2012, in my workshop, with most of the family members present.  The flag has sat on the shelf in Father’s house since.  On Friday, 25 May 2012, I asked my wife, Joann, to get the flag from Helen, not really letting her know what we were going to do.  On Saturday morning, Memorial Day Week-end, 26 May 2012, I went over and put up the American Flag & the Honor and Remember Flag for SPC Dale G. Granger, our son and brother.  Helen, 84 years of age, stood in the window and watched.  Later she gave me the following note which I would like to share with you.
    “As the years pass by many things in your life make a deep impression, some happy and some somber.  Friday May 26, 2012 as I looked out my kitchen window which is not unusual, but there stood Dave putting up our American Flag and Dale’s Memorial Flag, I went out on the porch and saluted.  Tears of joy and sadness came over me and I went in the house and took Jim’s (Dale’s Father) hand and took him to the window.  This particular day and event will never leave me.  I believe that is why I’m in Pine City, with this Granger family.  It was a miracle in my mind for sure.”
Helen A. Granger
