|My father, Roy Gerard is buried at Whitehaven|
Cemetery. I will always cherish my
memories of him. He was a brilliant
man who could add long lists of numbers
in his head. He was also a father, grandfather,
and great grandfather.
Today, I thought about remembrance when I visited two cemeteries in Grand Island: the Whitehaven Cemetery, established in 1865, and Maple Grove Cemetery, established in 1902.

|Grave for Grand Island's war hero,|
Charles DeGlopper, killed in action
in Normandy during World War II.
