Nancy’s story

Memorial Day 1941 was my first visit to Lakewood, I was 3 that summer. Our family went every Memorial Day and Labor Day to check on the urns at both of my families sites after they were planted and to make sure they were properly watered. Both [our family] plots were purchased in the late 20’s to early 30’s. I don’t have a special monument, but what is special for me are memories of asking about the people who are buried there and hearing their stories from my parents. Lakewood has always been special to our family.
