What follows is a journalist's interview with the Cemetery Director:

"On a recent morning, Paul Haubrich was poking through a wooden drawer on the wall of Forest Home's walk-in safe.

Haubrich, a retired University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee professor, has been a member of the Forest Home Cemetery Committee since 1993 and its chairman since 1996.

The drawer contained dozens of keys. Small keys. Big ones. Ornate. Plain. They were mausoleum keys, with august names attached. Blatz. Allis. Alstead.

There's a sad story behind this one, Haubrich said, pulling a steel key 5 inches long from the drawer. A ring fastened the key to a metal tag engraved "Chaintron."

The father in this family started what today would be called a dry-cleaning business, Haubrich said. He passed the business along to his son and daughter-in-law. One day, the chemicals in the building blew up, and both were killed. So the father built them a mausoleum.

Haubrich is 64 years old. He has silver hair and was wearing a green and navy striped tie. He and his wife plan to be buried at Forest Home.

Haubrich laid the Chaintron key in with the others and closed the drawer."
