My folks planned ahead...well I should say my dad did. But his marker is nothing like this..it is a regular head stone with the last name in bold large letters and then in smaller letters his name and mom’s. They are both now residing there. Actually, as goolish as it may sound, when they passed away ( with 5 years and two weeks between them) for us kids it was a blessing not to have to decide what kind of marker to have..Dad took care of business. And I miss them both..dad is gone 8 years and mom 14, both in Nov..one on Veteran’s Day and the other Thanksgiving Day.
Oh, I forgot one thing..my dad was born in Rantoul, IL..Could this be an Il thing?
