the day we laid my grampie to rest was a beautiful one...the sun was shining..not a cloud in the sky. his service was held in davenport, iowa and he was laid to rest in the rock island national cemetary in moline, illinois...just a short trek over the mighty mississippi...i'll let the pictures tell the story.
