The first weekend of May my husband, son, Mom and myself headed over to Illinois to drop off my Dad's headstone. Took us a year but we got it done. So sweet he wanted Jerry loved Sally(Mom and Dad) on the bronze plaque. We headed to St. Louis Friday and stayed at the Hyatt Union Station, it is a gorgeous hotel. On Saturday we headed to Litchfield and Honey Bend Illinois. We had a wonderful cookout with my cousins. My cousin Sheri is always giving me great family treasures. Amongst the many treasures she gave me this poem my great grand dad wrote. This is nothing rare since we have tons he printed at his printing press. She said turn it over when you are done.
He was always trying to get his poems published. While it was not published he got a response from Robert Frost. So neat!!
