|Bio and Links|
I was born in Beverly, Mass into a family that took grave tending very seriously. Many of my earliest memories are of being with my parents planting flowers and tending the graves of many past family members. In my elementary school years I would walk through the Central Cemetery morning and evening every day to get to school and back. The only thing that ever bothered me was seeing stones where the names were either gone or almost gone. It is the loss of a person all over again. I would like to play a small part in preserving some of these links to the past.|

|RonC||RE: Grove Cemetary|
Incidentally, our childhood 'cemetery memories' are similar. Did the same thing with my parents until they passed. Decades ago, my grandfather had been a longtime superintendent @ Saint James, living in a house adjacent to the cemetery (along the old Route 8 / then 'Riverside Drive'). We used to play hide-'n-seek behind the monuments. ;o/

Thanks, Dick. I'm used to cleaning around (or cleaning off) markers, too; and I walk away with a good feeling. Mt stomping grounds are nextdoor at Saint James. I'm much less familiar with Grove, and get a bit disoriented; but my photo requests are for people I once knew. Just posted another — and do hope that you'll stumble upon the Petereit graves at some point.

It's fine the way you cropped it. I actually visited Margie's grave within the last week, but hadn't gotten around to posting a photo. I try to do the same (as you) whenever possible. I just posted a photo of the banner (left by a family member), but have asked Mike to bump it down to 3rd place on the memorial. I found it to be appropot (for Marge).
Never got to find (and visit) the Lawtons and the Newmans. Glad you were able to get to those for me. Any chance that you were able to check on the Petereits? I don't frequent Grove Cemetery, but these folks were al old neighbors of mine.
