Fort Gordon, GA (WFXG)- For 12 years Denise Glasford's sister fought in the Army, but died last year on Memorial Day.
"Thinking about her and wishing she was still here with us," Glasford said. "It's been a tough year for the family."
Glasford started caring for her sister's children, who say not a day goes by without thinking about their mother.
"I miss how she would always tuck me in bed," said Jasmine McCoy, Glasford's 10-year-old niece.
