While Debbie and I were in Ohio this past weekend for our uncle's surprise party, Debbie wanted to go to the cemetary to find some of our grandparents graves. We had 29 to search for, dating back to 1878. We found 27 of the 29 but we did not find the 2 oldest, Wilhelm and Magalena Lotz from Germany. We searched and searched and just could not find it. There were over 53,000 markers in that cemetary. Even after going to the office and getting a map of where he and his wife were buried, we could not find it. Anyway, I took this picture of this huge marker with our name on it. Isn't it big??? We could miss this one for sure! :)
Also, towards the end of day 1 in the cemetary, we were looking for our great grandpa Carl Lotz and Debbie made a joking comment asking our great grandpa to give us a sign of where he was. That's when I looked up above and saw a big hawk flying over and it swooped down to the ground and flew right back up. Debbie saw it right then and jokingly said "Let's look over there first where the bird was!" So we went over where the bird had been and sure enough, there the 4 family member markers were!! We both had goose bumps!! So believe what you want but we really think that hawk was showing us the way to their graves. The End.
