Special guest speaker, William Robinson, is a veteran and was prisoner of war.

MACON, Ga. — A special Memorial Day celebration was held Saturday at Sardis Heard Funeral & Cremation Center.

It included both the Mayor of Gray and Warner Robins, as well as special guest speaker, William Robinson, who is a veteran and was a prisoner of war.

13WMAZ spoke to Heard's Chief Financial Officer, Robert Nicholson. He says it's important we support those who give their lives for America.

"It's okay to not share the same beliefs and political views and everything else, but these people that we're honoring today gave everyone the ability to do that and that's important. It's important to never forget, no matter who's the commander in chief, no matter if I agree with him or not, you've got to support the military," he said. 

The event began at 11 a.m. and ended with lunch. Sardis Heard also has plans to have a Veterans Day Celebration as well.
