Remembering Phyllis On Memorial Day

For many years Memorial Day was known as "Decoration Day". And in that spirit Ernie flooded family gravesites with flowers from his own gardens. There was never a family member or extended family member whose grave went unadorned if they were within driving distance of Great Bend, Kansas!

Pictured above is the grave of Ernie's wife Phyllis Margheim at Christmas, 1997.

"Your family is thinking of you, Mom, on this Memorial Day 2009. We love you and miss you."

A beautiful remembrance, Becky. Your father is a special man, I can tell, and your mother a very loved and missed lady!

Ernie, I wanted you to know that I find you an inspiration in the GeneaBlogger world. I've left you the Puckerbrush award at Genealogy Traces. You can pick it up now.
