May of 2012, Memorial Day weekend.  I, along with Ken's children and two of his grandchildren placed his ashes in the niche wall at Arlington National Cemetery.  It had been his last wish that the urn with his ashes be placed there and I honored that request.

Ken's family.  Granddaughters Laura and Tonya, sons David and Doug, with Gayle, Doug's fiancee, myself and Bill Peterson, Ken's brother-in-law and Gerry's brother.



 It was a nice day for a memorial and Ken was interred with all of the military honors he was entitled.

I was given his flag.

The Honor Guard played Taps and performed a military salute.


 Doug placed the urn containing his father's ashes into the wall which would be sealed.  Each of us said a few words at the site and the memorial was done.
