We went to the Snowflake Cemetery where so many family members are buried. This is the marker for my parents.
My name is listed at the back of the monument as one of the children.
My little brother Layne Kent died when he was just ten days old.

My children were blessed to have wonderful grandparents.
My grandparents on my father's side are buried here.
Also at the Snowflake Cemetery my grandparents on my mother's side are buried.

My great grandfather settled Snowflake. Snowflake is named for him.
We have a great Pioneer heritage.
