GREENFIELD — As the first notes of “Taps” floated over the crowd, Diana Southgate began to weep.
She reached out and grabbed the flagpole next to her, one bearing the name of her son. Brian Southgate, who was killed in a car accident in Spain while serving in the Navy, was buried 17 years ago Monday, the day his mother and dozens of others gathered in Park Cemetery for Greenfield’s 57th annual Memorial Day Service.
It was one of two services held Monday in the county; supporters also gathered for a short ceremony in Fortville.
