MANSFIELD (CBSDFW.COM) - It is the first Memorial Day for Tiffany Cantell and her family since her husband, SSG Jason Cantell, passed away.

He died in September as a result of injuries he sustained from two tours in Iraq.

His three boys, ages 1, 5 and 7 wore camo clothing to a Memorial Day ceremony held at Skyvue Memorial gardens in Mansfield.

Their family and dozens of past, present and future service men and women spent the afternoon honoring those who made the ultimate sacrfice serving our country.

Proud veterans showed their respect during the National Anthem, taps was played and doves were released into the sky.

“The white dove is symbolism of the spirit and purity. We release a lot of them as a spirit flies towards the heavens,” said Susie Lindsay, who releases doves and military pigeons every year on Memorial Day to honor her grandfather who served in the Korean War.

Each branch of the military was honored.

But for the Cantell family, the show of support on Memorial Day was just the source of comfort they needed on this somber day.

“To see people that actually know what this day is about is amazing,” said Cantell. “Words can’t express how proud I am. Nothing makes me happier to see what he’s done. He was happy with what he did. He loved what he did and he would do it all over again.”
