Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired from Geary County USD #475 in 2008 after 26 years of service. Grew up in Junction City, KS. Take photos at area cemeteries and post them to Find A Grave. Glad to transfer memorials upon request.


Beneath the boughs of ancient trees
A little flag defies the breeze
And every carvings's stark relief
Reminds us of a day of grief.

The flowers in the vase soon wilt
And over time, the markers tilt;

The letters on a stone may blur
But even after decades stir
The memories of those before,
Of how they'd smile and laugh and roar.

And standing on this gusty hill
I think that they are with us, still.

----Don Munday (KC Star)

RE: Hazel Weir
Thanks so much! I don't get up there very often so if you can take the photo of her stone, that would be much appreciated.

Dennis Bethe edit
I received your edit request to change Dennis Bethe's birthdate. I see that both his obituary and gravestone show April 12, how do you know his birthday is April 2?

Thank you for the edits! On an interesting (I think) side note, my father and sister live in Lagrange County, Indiana, and it is also where my mother is buried. I had not heard of an "Ontario", however.It's a small world!
