Hey, Kathryn!

Good to hear from you again and I apologize for just now getting back in touch with you concerning Rose's gravestone.

After taking a bus four hours up to Worcester, I found NO tombstone and confirmed it again with Notre Dame after I got back. I located her and Napoleon's gravesites because there happened to be a caretaker on the grounds who directed me to their spot. Talk about almost coming unglued, I did. Dad and I began working on getting Aunt Rose and Napoleon a tombstone so our family could have a photograph of it for all of our genealogical records but that had to be put on hold until we get Aunt Myra Lynn's tombstone ordered and placed first.

I just don't understand why the Pominvilles didn't get the couple their own tombstones. Whatever the reason, dad and I had decided to order something to be placed down since Rose has been dead since the mid-forties. While there, I was able to find one of her son's markers as well as some of their in-laws. I guess that was better than nothing. :)

Have a wonderful evening!

Kevin
