A special thank you to the grounds keeper Sandi Golden for raising and clearing off the buried stones that were unreadable until recently. I had a great visit with her and she is very sincere in her work and does a terrific job.  It`s a real hard job ,but she wants the stones up and visible for us.  And lest we forget Father Weber and his Secretary Mrs. Pat Daniels for allowing me into the rectory to check the map and take pictures on the wall in the dining room....Barb Durfee
