This marker is one of the few remaining remnants at the cemetery of Old Rolfe.

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!
