Sweet Memories: Fallen Service member dessert sharing, part of Operation Love Letters
Michele Carey and Linda Keneen prepare the desserts for Operation Love Letters attendees. These were favorite desserts of fallen service members remembered during the event by families in attendance. Sweet memories were created as families shared why the Service member chose this as their favorite dessert or some other detail that made an important memory to associate with the dessert. This activity is part of Operation Love Letters, which is an annual patriotic celebration to honor fallen service members through fellowship with family and friends gathered together writing love letters, scripting poetry, sharing loveable memories of their service member, and enjoying the offerings of some very special guests. This year, the event was held at Veterans Memorial Park in Tampa on Feb. 19, 2017.
