April 27, 2007

Well, the deed is done, so to speak. On Tuesday morning cousin Phyllis and I sat down with the memorial people from Stennes Granite. The picture is of the type of stone we ordered. Except there is an additional strip between the 2 pieces, much like the stone at the far rear right.

As we started firming up the prices for the 2 stones, the add ons continued. So, with sales tax the total now is just over $6,000. And there you go.

In any event, both headstones are on order with the layout to be provided by them for our review in the not too distant future. I'll share that when I receive it also so we can ensure the wording is correct etc. We are led to believe the stones will be in place some time in June.

Thanks so much Phyllis and Fred for getting this project completed. Funny how Tuesday morning when you were ordering the stones I was sitting in the museum with the LDS film that contained the baptimal record and parish of Grandma Antonia Januzik/Januzyk Wilebski finally making that connection back to Kosztowo, Poland, the parish we cousins have been searching for these past 28 years. The date listed for Antonia's birth on her baptismal record (which occurred the same day)is January 17, 1860 (Feast of St. Anthony).
Certainly someone was smiling on your project from above, Fred and Phyllis!
