It was built by Father Doberstein, creator of the “Grotto of the Redemption” in West Bend, Iowa.

Memorial Day is a day to remember all those who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. And we do. We surely do.

Rolfe’s current cemetery, Clinton-Garfield, is ablaze with flags and flowers. It’s a wonderful sight to see.

A heartfelt Thank You to those who gave all.

    I enjoyed seeing those two pictures, which helps to remind me of the sacrifice of so many brave men and women to helped preserve our freedom. Have a good Memorial Holiday,

    Thank you, Dad!

    Did you see that the monument was made by the same fellow who created the Grotto of the Redemption? I thought that was an interesting thing.

    Love you!
