Final Resting Place - Elmer Balach

We laid Dad to rest on Saturday, June 21, 2014 at All Saints Cemetery, Northfield, Ohio. The AmVets came fully dressed and gave him a 21 gun salute and a couple of other military men came as well.  One played taps and then the two of them unfolded the flag; refolded it and presented it to my brother Bill, as he was in the Marines at one time. The priest who performed the funeral service also came and said a few words.  It was very beautiful and we appreciate the military giving him an honorable burial.

Mom and Dad are now buried next to each other.  Mom died on July 18, 1988, at 67 years of age.  Dad made it to 94 years young.

All Saints is a beautiful cemetery and well kept. 

I kept a few flowers from the arrangement we got for Dad.
