Christine’s story

Recently while doing some genealogy research, I discovered that a great aunt was buried at Lakewood. When I went to visit her memorial, I found she had been buried next to two of her sisters. But what really surprised me was that nearby I stumbled upon the marker of my great grandparents who I had assumed were buried near their hometown in North Dakota. The sisters must have wanted their parents memorials closer to where they lived at the time. It has been a gift feeling nearer to my family’s history – in my hometown and in my heart.
