I love that story about your moms headstone. My parents both recently passed and my siblings and I struggled to think of what they would want. After the headstone was in place, I had all kind of ideas. Guess I don't work well under pressure.
Im related to the McCreedys from my paternal side. My great grandmothers maiden name was Ellen McCreedy. I know very little besides her family was originally from New York but settled in Wisconsin. Somehow she ended up in Michigan. I will have to try to research a little more. No I am not related to the person you made mention to....Dick Rappely.
Maybe we are related somehow.

I live in Bay County and was just visiting a couple cemeteries in Tuscola County when I came across your mothers headstone. It's quite unique. I liked it. It got my attention seeing the name McCreedy. My great grandmother was Ellen McCreedy 1875-1932. She married Delbert Whitney. I do not know much about my McCreedy heritage. I know she had a brother named Archie. Sorry to about your accident. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

I was in Wisner Cemetery today in Tuscola County. I randomly photographed some headstones. One was Edlough Messer. I see you have posted the front of the stone. I found the back of the stone interesting so will add it. It's a pedigree. Wasn't sure if it was an over site or omitted because it has several names on it. Let me know if you would like me to remove photo. I have never seen a stone like it. I see her maiden name was McCreedy......so was my great grandmothers.
