Closing remarks by Lowell Fouks, Calvary Cemetery sexton-

"Is this a beautiful day or what. I couldn't mow lawn out here without getting rained on. So I just can't believe it's been six years in a row with good weather for this day."

"The coffee is on at the community center so you can all head down and continue your visiting there. And I thank you all for coming."
