Sister Agnes-Marie Valois died in France in April 2018. She was 103 years old. To Allied soldiers injured during a failed raid in Dieppe in August 1942, she was known as the "White Angel". I had the opportunity to meet with her briefly in 2014 and found her delightful. Read more about the White Angel here.

In addition to remembering all of those who participated in World War I, World War II and other wars before and since then, I will remember her when I attend any Remembrance Day ceremony on November 11th. 

Remembrance Day

Raindrops pelt a poppy umbrella

Held high over my head.

They drum in time with the bugler’s call

To remember the dead.

As the bugler’s trumpet sounds to close

We are grateful for choices.

We promise with our teary eyes, and

Bold determined voices,

 

Grass upon which we stand carpeted

With neon decay, wet,

Mutes the tributes of fallen men, but

We remember them yet.

As the bugler’s trumpet sounds to close

We are grateful for choices.

We promise with our teary eyes, and

Bold determined voices,

 

 

We will remember them.
