Two special ceremonies were held in the North Valley.

Every Memorial Day people gather at the Merced District Cemetery to honor the fallen.

And while families appreciate the special tributes-many say it's difficult to re-live the loss of their loved ones.

This Memorial Day, white crosses-and American flags surround the grave sites of Merced County natives, who sacrificed their lives fighting for our country.
