On Thursday, September 6th, Trinity Courtyard hosted a Celebration of Life service for Frank Marks, one of their residents and a WWII veteran. Following worship and remembrances shared in the Great Room, the community gathered at the flagpole outside the building, where military honors were provided by the Nebraska National Guard and American Legion Post # 32. It was a moving experience to hear the 21-gun salute and then watch as the flag was retired from the pole (accompanied by Taps) folded, and presented to his family. It was likewise powerful as another flag was hoisted, and revelry was played. Residents and family alike honored a life, mourned a death, and found camaraderie within the gathered community.
