Fifty years have gone by and I remember our first day of school like yesterday... and lots of other days as well.

My dad's grave is surrounded by Deitermans, Nadene: are we related somehow?

Sorry to hear about your Dad, Larry... I don't think we are related. It seems that area of the cemetery has graves of some of the older families. My grandparents buried two babies and a young son there in the 20s and 30s. My guess is the proximity is related more to lot availability. Dad and others spent a lot of time there tearing out the old trees and planting new ones!
