The famliy puts posies on the graves in two cemetaries. One is in Amasa the other is in Channing. This is the first time Amasa pictures were taken. I managed to mix them up in the postings.
The ceremony was at the Channing cemetary. The picture with me in it was at the Channing cemetary because I did not go to Amasa.
The reason they go to the Amasa cemetary is because Bazillio is buried there. This bears an explanation. Bazillio was an Italian immegrant of Emil and Mary Piasini's generetion. He never married and did not have children to speak of. Everyone knew who he was and no one ever spoke badly of him. There was so much love for this man that the church could not hold all the people who came to his funeral.

Every year since I have been a part of my husband's family one of the members joins the local VFW and makes sure all the graves of the military have a flag and the graves of family members have 'posies' for the year.
This year Mary, Larry, Cassie and Robert enjoyed the nice weather for this annual task.

We spent Memorial day weekend in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan with family. The pics were buried in the computer with the April birthday download. I found them because someone asked me for a current picture of my children and the last time I was sure of a son picture was on his birthday. Surprise!! Here are 15 pictures of Lake Surperior from Presque Isle in Marquette. I took some. Cassie went rock hopping and took some. It was hard to leave any of them out. Each is so different.
