Grandma and Grandpa at their 50th wedding
anniversary celebration/wedding in Rochelle. This was
always Grandma's dream - to have her dream wedding.
Grandpa went along (because he had no other choice)
but he totally enjoyed himself that day (and he looked
good in the tux). It was a very nice wedding.

I took this picture on the first anniversary of
Grandma's death. I'm so glad that Bob and I
decided to get a nice gravestone for their grave.
Poor Grandma couldn't decide WHAT to put on the
plaque that the VA would put on the grave for
Grandpa. So, we told her that we'd figure it out.
And we did! Of course, it's like Andrew and Jarrett's
stone and considering that it's the only black stone
out there at the cemetery, it's easy to find. And that
was our intention.
They really did pick a very nice, beautiful place to
rest in peace. God bless them both.
