It has been an emotional journey for them and the Syracuse Marine Parents group that has watched Rick and Lorie walk through their journey of turning grief into their son's by line, "Its My Turn". In the last few days the Baldwinsville Post Office has gained a new Name. It is now called by its new name The Cpl Kyle Schneider Post Office of Baldwinsville NY. At the dedication there were several Political representatives and Postal employees, along with the Baker High School's chorus. The director of that Chorus has inspired many a high school student to compose their own music and they premiered "Its My Turn" in Kyles honor, (my son Forest was in his choir during his high school years).
There will be more to come about my next painting. For now, I am off to my parents for some burgers and one more parade!
So, from the bottom of my heart, Thank you my son, my Veteran's, my Military Family. You are remembered this Memorial Weekend in every way, I give you honor.
