I saw some Heyer's buried there, if I only knew then. Hopefully I can get back there before the snow flies. If you need more stone photos I will be checking the site. There are a lot of Dutch names there.

I walked the Olena Mound Cemetery twice and could not find Harmke. I only found one stone with that last name and entered it if you'd like to look at it. Did Harmke marry? I noticed that her fathers name was Groen. There are a lot of Dutch names there. My grandparents came from Midwolda so I kinda know some Dutch names.

Wishing you and yours a safe and very Merry Christmas. May your home be filled with the magic and warmeth of this joyous holiday season.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. Luke 2:10-16
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus!
